SafeGait 360° System Components and Patient Software


A stealth, state-of-the-art unweighting device that tracks movement 2500 times per second. Proprietary software drives the actuator to maintain position relative to the patient and ensures constant tension on the strap, even after a prevented fall. As the actuator moves along the rail, it collects and transmits data for therapist viewing. This patented device creates a safe environment for therapists and patients, instilling the confidence needed to pursue early and intense therapy.

Proprietary Rail System

Patented, single rail design features an integrated power bar that allows the actuator to travel in a smooth, monorail-like fashion. Some rail systems have an attached power cord that prevents full loop configurations and creates unusable track space. Others have a separate power bar that can result in an unstable appearance with vibrations like a…trolley. Designed to accommodate even the most challenging facility space and requirements, our integrated rail system has been customized per request in many configurations including: Loop, Straight, J-shaped, Horseshoe, Asymmetrical U. With nearly 40 years’ experience in designing and building custom rail to meet customer’s needs, Gorbel is uniquely qualified to assist you in creating the best design for your facility.

Strap & Spreader Bar

Featuring seatbelt-like material for added safety, the actuator strap connects to the spreader bar. The patient harness, SafeGait EMBRACE, has options for attachment points to accommodate patients of varying body types. Unique to SafeGait is Dynamic Fall Protection that keeps tension on the strap at all times without the need for therapists to winch the device vertically following a prevented fall. This feature allows patients to safely recover without interruption of body-weight support and keeps therapist attention on the patient rather than device controls.

SafeGait EMBRACE™ Rehabilitation Harness

Addresses traditional harness ‘pain points’ with an innovative, therapist generated design that allows patients to comfortably and safely practice ADLs. EMBRACE is designed to counter uplifting forces of BWS systems to maintain harness position. Modular design leg cuffs allows for interchangeability with different torso sizes to accommodate patients of varying body types. Available for use with therapeutic BWS and fall protection systems.


Windows™ powered, the kiosk contains SafeGait’s proprietary Patient Management Software and provides a user interface for managing patient data and controlling the actuator. The kiosk communicates with the actuator and the handheld remote control via a secured, encrypted wireless network. It is also an interface for inputting patient records, creating & managing care plans, and displaying patient performance outcomes by session or task.

Handheld Remote Control

Android™ powered, the Handheld Remote Control can also be used to operate the actuator. Adjustments to BWS, providing a patient Boost and adding challenge can be done on-the-fly through simple controls. The clear visual interface displays patient performance measures in real-time for each task.

Patient Management Software

Proprietary, user-friendly software allows therapists to track patient progress in real time by session and task. The software features an extensive, Plan of Care library of tasks from which therapists can create and customize unique treatment plans for their patients. Unlike competitive systems, our Patient Management Software provides the ability to challenge patients through goal-setting and RPE (rate of perceived exertion) feedback. Therapists can compare meaningful data from therapy sessions or by specific task, view it in detail summary or chart formats, and export to upload into patient health records.
