The Features of LiteGait that make it the Most Advanced Solution for Gait Therapy
1 : Yoke
Rigid • FlexAble
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 Compressors • No Pumps • 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.
