WalkAble the Pediatric LiteGait
WalkAble™ is specially designed for use with smaller children at home or in therapy.
WalkAble is the smallest LiteGait® model, and is perfect for children weighing up to 100 lbs and 4' 8" tall*. The harness comfortably supports the child, and the locking straps allow adjustments to be made for walking symmetry, while providing a very enjoyable walking therapy experience. The smaller, lighter design of the WalkAble allows a child to be safely supported while walking over ground or over treadmill in any environment, whether at home, in school, or in therapy.
* LiteGait models are available for larger patients.
The unique design of WalkAble allows its supportive yoke to slide easily and safely down the upright post, allowing for control of posture and balance for even the youngest children, while a redundant safety pin and two tightening knobs keep the yoke securely in its desired position. Additionally, the uniquely designed harness can be used—without modification—for both walking and crawling.
Gait therapy sessions using a treadmill at speeds as slow as 0.1 mph have proven highly effective with the pediatric populations. In combination with the proper training program, WalkAble can help therapists and parents improve a patient's gait patterns, posture, balance, muscle strength and overall endurance levels. WalkAble is being used successfully in homes, children centers, and rehabilitation facilities throughout the world.
All LiteGait models are backed by a one year warranty*, a responsive Service Department, and an extremely active Education Department conducting affordable on-site training and CEU accredited courses. When you purchase a LiteGait, you receive the service, the education, and the quality you and your clients deserve.
