How it works

LiteGait therapy uses a suspension system and harness to support some or all of a patient’s bodyweight while standing, walking or exercising either on a treadmill or on the ground. The harness reduces the fear of falling and allows patients to walk forward, backward or side step under the guidance of their therapist. As patients progress, therapists can decrease the tension of the harness to allow patients to bear more of their weight while walking in a fall-free environment.

Who it benefits

LiteGait’s adaptability means it can be incorporated into therapy for a wide range of conditions that affect the lower limbs including:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury
  • Amputation
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
