ZEROG Gait and Balance System

 

The implementation of the ZeroG Gait and Balance System into the physical therapy and co-therapy practice has provided the Lighthouse therapists the opportunity to advance the treatment of orthopedic residents with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and services to our outpatients. This system allows maximize patient outcomes without the risk of falling, reduces the pressure in the bilateral lower extremities, compensates for weakness and poor coordination permitting earlier in recovery. The technique also allows the therapist to provide gait training to clients 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 ZeroG provides a safe and controlled environment for training/working on the gait cycle, standing tolerance, and balance. Click HERE to learn more!
