LiteGait Features

Features that make it the Most Advanced Solution for Gait Therapy

LiteGait® is a gait training device that simultaneously controls weight bearing, posture, and balance over a treadmill or over ground. It creates an ideal environment for treating patients with a wide range of impairments and functional levels. LiteGait provides proper posture, reduces weight bearing, eliminates concerns for balance, and facilitates the training of coordinated lower extremity movement. Its unique harness design not only permits unilateral or bilateral support allowing progression of the weight bearing load from non to full weight bearing, but also allows the clinician to manually assist the legs and pelvis to achieve proper gait patterns.

    1: Yoke

    • Rigid, Flexible
    • The Y-shaped yoke supports the patient from directly over each shoulder maintaining posture and balance. This unique design allows control over the partial weight bearing status of each side of the body independently. FlexAble™ Yoke easily transitions from rigid support to allow controlled vertical displacement, ideal for challenging posture and, balance during gait as therapy progresses.

    2: Straps

    • Right, Left, Front, Back
    • Four overhead adjustable straps allow correction of asymmetric upper body posture. Each of the straps can be individually adjusted to correct posture for proper walking.

    3: Harness

    • Ideal, Adjustable, Washable
    • The harness securely wraps around the patient's trunk and comfortably transfers load to the lower abdomen, over the hip, and through the groin. While the optional thigh straps will avoid loads to the groin area, the standard groin straps prevent interference with limb movement. This promotes full leg extension and prevents sitting.

    4: Actuator

    • No Pumps, No Compressors, No Noise
    • The lift mechanism is a rechargeable, battery powered actuator which permits the incremental adjustment of weight bearing. This allows patients weighing up to 500lbs to be brought to an upright posture by a single operator. The handheld control allows therapists to conveniently bring patient to a standing position and adjust the amount of weight supported.

    5: Base

    • Mobile, Stable, Versatile
    • The wheeled base, designed for over-ground walking, fits through most doorways, over most treadmills, and under most hopsital beds. LiteGait® casters lock the device securely in place for standing activities or treadmill training. Then, when patients are ready to practice the skills they have learned, LiteGait can be smoothly pushed over ground, while preventing falls and eliminating the fear of falling.
