August’s FAQ: Do 100% of all standing & walking problems get solved with the GHS?

August 17, 2014

Do 100% of all standing and walking problems get solved with the GHS? 

  • The GHS allows you to increase your level of functioning, obtain a healthier outcome, and perform greater movement than you could perform safely without the GHS’s support during over-ground therapy
  • Because users feel comfortable in the GHS, they are better able to focus on walking, rather than not falling
  • The caregiver and user do not have to wrestle with awkward, heavy or resistant equipment
  • The GHS is an extension of the user, not vice versa; it follows the user’s lead
  • You need to take things at your own pace; because every user is unique

The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments.

Lori walks again in the Gait Harness System

August 3, 2014

As shared with us by Push to Walk New Jersey: “In this video our client Lori is getting some practice walking over ground in the Gait Harness System. This was one of the first times she went 200 feet in the walker, and she says this distance is getting easier. She also can feel more weight going through her feet when she walks and is getting a much better rhythm with her steps, as you can see in the video. So needless to say, this all means even more walking for her every time she comes in! Go Lori!”
