ZERO-G Gravity System


The implementation of the Zero-G into the Physical Therapy practice has provided the Lighthouse Physical Therapists with the opportunity to advance the treatment of orthopedic residents with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This system allows the therapist to unweight the resident and reduce the pressure in the bilateral lower extremities. The technique allows the therapist to provide gait training to residents who have significant weight bearing limitations or residents who present with a severe TBI and/or a Glascow Coma Scale of 10 and below. The Zero-G provides a safe and controlled environment for training/working on the gait cycle, standing tolerance, and balance. Click HERE to learn more!
