I would like to inform you of a unique “walking stander” which allows people with paralysis walk independently. The standing frame has been taken to another level by making active rehabilitation and movement possible. By leaning side to side and pulling the handgrips, the user can walk forward, backward and turn. This is the only device in the world which allows paralyzed people with Spinal Cord Injury (up to C5 level), Multiple Sclerosis, Spina Bifida and stroke to walk independently. Please visit our web site www.ablegaitor.com. There are three links on the front page showing an adult with SCI T12 level, child with Spina Bifida and a child with Cerebral Palsy.
Our mission is to empower people with paralysis to be upright and to walk independently, improving their physical and mental health.
Medical benefits include the prevention of numerous complications that arise from being wheelchair bound and sedentary such as degenerative changes in the cardiovascular system, osteoporosis, increased risk of coronary disease, venous stasis, muscular atrophy accompanied by contractures involving multiple joints, respiratory problems etc. Usage of this device shortly after injury or stroke dramatically increases the possibility of recovery and reduces the potential of neurological complications.
