State-of-the-Art Technologies LiteGait® with GaitKeeper™
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 impairements. 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 none to full weight bearing, but also allows the clinician to manually assist the legs and pelvis to achieve proper gait patterns.

The Balance Master® provides assessment and retraining of the sensory and voluntary motorcontrol of balance with visual biofeedback. The system utilizes a fixed 18”x 60” dual forceplate to measure the vertical forces exerted by the patient’s feet. The interactive technology and clinically proven protocols allow the clinician to objectively assess patients performing tasks ranging from essential daily living activities through high-levelathletic skills. The objective data aids in the design of effective treatment and/or training programs focused on the specific sensory and motor components underlying a patient’s functional limitations.
