Who can use the LiteGait?

The LiteGait system is a revolutionary piece of technology designed to facilitate gait training and mobility rehabilitation for people with various conditions, including neurological disorders, orthopaedic injuries, spinal cord injuries, and more. LiteGait is a supportive harness system combined with an overhead support frame and a treadmill or ground-level walking area. Its design ensures that users receive the necessary assistance to safely engage in weight-bearing activities and gait training whilst minimizing the risk of falls.

At Vim Health our therapists use the LiteGait whilst guiding and correcting a patient’s gait pattern. By offering targeted support, our physiotherapists can help you learn and maintain proper walking mechanics, promoting more natural and efficient movement.

Key Features and Benefits

  •  Personalized Weight-Bearing Support:  The harness allows therapists to adjust the level of support based on the patient’s specific needs, gradually reducing the support as the patient’s strength and stability improve.
  • Gait Training and Correction: LiteGait enables therapists to guide and correct a user’s gait pattern. By offering targeted support, therapists can help patients learn and maintain proper walking mechanics.
  • Fear Reduction: The LiteGait system provides a secure and controlled environment for individuals who fear falling. This sense of safety fosters confidence, allowing patients to focus on their rehabilitation goals without the constant fear of losing balance.

Key Features and Benefits continued

 

  1. Early Mobilization: LiteGait facilitates early mobilization for patients recovering from surgeries, injuries, or medical conditions. This early intervention helps prevent complications like muscle atrophy and joint stiffness.
  2. Task-Specific Training: Beyond basic gait training, LiteGait enables therapists to tailor exercises to specific functional tasks, such as stair climbing, sit-to-stand transitions, and balance exercises.
  3. Real-Time Feedback: The device’s design enables therapists to provide immediate patient feedback during training sessions. Progress Tracking: LiteGait empowers therapists to monitor and track patients’ progress objectively.
  4. Enhanced Motivation: The visible progress enabled by LiteGait motivates patients to participate in their rehabilitation actively. Seeing tangible improvement reinforces their dedication to the process and contributes to overall positive outcomes.
