Mobility Research Inc. is one of the most trusted names in the rehabilitation technology field. We introduced partial weight bearing into gait therapy, and have continued to lead the way in in the field of rehabilitation treatment solutions for 20 years.
LiteGait was developed out of the clinic to provide both tools and education of clinically-appropriate rehabilitation solutions. LiteGait® is the only device that allows clinicians to bring low-level patients to standing positions from beds or wheelchairs, while also providing patients with solid overhead support, and a harness that encourages development of proper gait patterns. LiteGait® devices are compact yet sturdy, able to easily transition from over treadmills to over ground and vice versa, while also being able to fit through most doorways. LiteGait® accessories also provide enhanced benefits when used in conjunction with LiteGait® systems. Clinicians can easily document progress with the BiSym Scale, which displays amounts of bilateral and unilateral support provided during the therapy. The innovative harness, when coupled with LiteGait® devices, provides comfortable, biomechanically-correct posture. LiteGait® harnesses do not encourage sitting! Taken all together, Mobility Research Inc. and its line of rehabilitation products adds up to one of the most reliable, experienced, and trustworthy options available in the world today.
LiteGait® offers a wide range of benefits for clinicians, dealers, and patients. LiteGait® allows clinicians to:
- Control weight bearing and posture to correct asymmetric movement
- prevent excessive forward lean
- train symmetric gait patterns for patients with one sided body weakness
- facilitate proper gait patterns
- work on symmetry and weight shifting
- train coordination without balance concerns
- manually assist limb placement
- facilitate proper hip alignment
- provide efficient treatment
- work on sit to stand, balance, and posture
- safely lift patients to standing from chair or mat
- objectively chart patient progress with BiSym™ Scale (optional)?
