Why LiteGait

The unique design of LiteGait provides benefits to the Patient, the facility and to the therapist:

Facility Benefits with the use of LiteGait:
LiteGait® allows facilities to . . 

  • achieve increased efficiency and increase the number of patients receiving gait therapy
  • provide a secure environment that allows one therapist to treat difficult patients and still achieve effective results with gait therapy
  • reduce the risk of back injury to staff, and risk of falls to patients
  • offer therapy to patients previously not eligible for gait therapy due to the severity or complexity of their condition or cognitive level
  • offer longer therapy sessions to certain patients
  • treat extra patients
  • capture charges for complex treatment
  • create a safer, more successful and enjoyable therapy environment for both the patient and the therapist

Facilities have utilized the LiteGait Therapy System to generate additional revenue in a number of ways, including increased referrals, Medicare B, and improved efficiency. Please contact sales@litegait.com for a write up on the LiteGait Return on investment.
