Mike- you are looking good. We can see how you are working hard with LiteGait. Can you tell me where you get your therapy? I would really like to connect with your therapists. Send me an email to email@example.com , thank you! Keep up the good work!
Looking good on the LiteGait! Keep up the good work. LiteGait shouldn't be an OUCH experience. You can have your PT contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to offer some simple tips to help make the harness comfortable. The harness should be worn lower, with those lowest side straps at the level of the greater trochanter (at the hip joint). It should be worn very tight so that it can't ride up. The riding up is what puts pressure in the groin area. Best wishes for pain-free LiteGait training!
Also, you can enhance the training by offering the pt more postural support by shortening the front straps. This will help them to achieve a more upright position for gait. Facilitating the step pattern will allow the pt to experience better wt shifting, limb loading, and longer steps. It takes a little time to get into a rhythm, so don't hesitate to experiment with facilitation ideas to see works best for this pt. For more info, please email email@example.com.
Callie looks great and is working hard! If you are interested in suggestions on how to make LiteGait therapy a bit more beneficial for her please contact us. I have a couple of tips we can provide just based on this clip. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or have your clinician contact us. Keep up the good work.
Ms. Whitely is doing great on the LiteGait. I know she had 3 angels helping her out, but there are ways to decrease the assist factor! One easy way is to tie a piece of theraband around the hips and attach to the post, and this will keep Pfeiffer's hips forward thus eliminating the person behind her. KK is great to be able to provide all the help, but even the limb movement can be done with one person facilitating. We are happy to help in any way- Great work! Great therapy!
Grant is doing great. We watched the clip from NOV. as well and it seems he is initiating his steps better now! Two thoughts- When you're assisting him, try to let his hip extend further to get a good hip flexor stretch. Stretch might be easier to get if a piece of theraband is around his hips and tied around the post.. to keep them forward while you step for him. Increase treadmill speed during this part too. You are doing a great job with Grant and he is so cooperative! You are both lucky.
