Litegait for Neurological Conditions
What is the LitGait?
The LiteGait is a piece of equipment that allows rehabilitation in a partial weight-bearing environment for those that have some degree of standing ability. It allows patients to work on gait pattern, task-specific training, co-ordination, strengthening, balance and fitness.
The LiteGait allows for safe and supportive weight-bearing therapy whilst also promoting independent walking.
The benefits of using the LiteGait for neurological conditions include:
Support motor learning and high intensity repetitions.
Provide a fall-safe environment early on in the rehab process
Enable functional activity and task-specific training
Ideal setting for balance, control and strength training exercises
Can walk forwards, backwards or side step
Re-educating movement patterns
Neurological physiotherapy treatment in the LiteGait can be used for a range of different conditions including:
Functional Neurological Disorder (FND)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Spinal cord injuries
