Gait Trainer Program
This is a revolutionary and inventive program to improve walking/running. This system which uses our AccesSportAmerica Gait Trainer and specialized protocols truly works! Our first mini study showed marked improvement in 75% of participants and improvement to all in just four weeks of training. Our current eight-month study is showing even more dramatic results. In 2017 we’re expanding to include up to 18 participants who will train 2-3 times per week on our Gait Trainer. This device helps individuals gain better stride length, more hip and knee flexion as well as knee extension. Our Gait Trainer almost eliminates hesitation and leads to better timing.
We’ve specialized in gait training for close to 15 years. Nothing we’ve done or seen makes similar progress in training and retraining people to walk with gait issues. Our Gait Trainer was developed over the past five years with to provide a low cost means for high repetition of perfect gait patterns. We also hoped to create a system that would eventually be easily accessible for thousands of people hoping to improve their walking and ambulation after stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, MS, and other conditions.
The current program is located in the Supportive Living Inc. gym in Lexington, Mass. with three Gait Trainer devices. Again, look in on this program in mid-2017 for an expansion.
