Reduce patient and facility risk
The SafeGait system mitigates the risk of injury from falls, protecting both patients and therapists.
Reducing the fear of falling can improve a patient’s confidence and encourage a more challenging treatment plan. Without fear of injury, (or re-injury) therapists may expand task choices resulting in a more diverse intervention strategy. Proprietary Dynamic Fall Protection (DFP) enables rehab centers to decrease the potential for patient injury, as well as worker’s compensation cases due to therapist injuries.
Costs associated with injuries from falls to both patients and therapists can result in a substantial burden on a facility. The SafeGait system not only mitigates the risk of patient falls, but of injury to therapists as well. Additionally, reducing the fear of falling can improve a patient’s confidence and treatment progress. This may result in quicker mobilizations and faster recovery. In short, SafeGait promotes healthier patients, a healthier workforce and a healthier bottom line.
