- Patients can safely begin their walking therapy early after neurological and orthopedic injuries, with early and intensive therapy being the most effective at promoting recovery*.
- The system provides the highest level of safety to the patient, removing the potential for fall.
- The system also helps to reduce the risk of injuries to therapists
- A single therapist can train even the largest, most impaired patients.
- Since the system is ceiling mounted, subjects can practice obstacles such as stairs and uneven terrain, practice sit to stand tasks, and can use assistive devices.
- ZeroG records training parameters such as patient walking distance, number of falls prevented, minimum & maximum body-weight support and total training time so therapists can track a patient’s recovery.
In addition to ZeroG, Aretech will also be directly selling their other products to customers, including ZeroG-Lite and ZeroG-Passive. ZeroG-Lite is a treadmill-based gait training system offering many of the features of ZeroG. ZeroG-Passive is a patient safety device that provides patients with the confidence to practice gait and balance training activities.
