Walking In the Gait Trainer

Here are some pictures of Ashleigh walking in the gait trainer (LiteGait). She was doing so well with the walker that we tried it one day without it. I think she looks great!

She still has some trouble with trunk control so her PT, Julian, and I were helping her to stabilize. She has a knee brace on to help her weaker leg. The LiteGait will protect her from falling.

In the walker we typically do four passes at about fifteen feet per pass. Lately she has been able to go five passes.

    I am with the Education Department at Mobility Research (maker of LiteGait). Thank you for sharing your LiteGait story on your blog. I think Ashleigh looks great!

    I just wanted to make a suggestion for the next time she is in LiteGait. Bring the top down to about 6-7 inches from the top of Ashleigh’s head, which will allow the device to have more control of the trunk, and reduce the sway.

    Let me know if it makes any difference for her. We have clinical support available at litegait.com- don’t hesitate to contact us!

    Good luck and keep up all of the hard work.
