The Gaitway Center is a conference and education space in Gorbel’s Technology Center building that has a simulated physical therapy facility complete with a SafeGait™ 360 Dynamic Body-Weight Support System, a SafeGait ACTIVE™, and other rehabilitation equipment. Activities in the Gaitway Center will focus on research, education and product development.
"The Gaitway Center will serve as a hub to bring together therapists and researchers to investigate new rehabilitation tools that can be developed into future Gorbel Medical products...Therapists from across the country will use the Gaitway Center to collaborate on studies designed to measure the impact of Gorbel Medical’s products, including the SafeGait System, on clinical outcomes, care quality and delivery."
President and CEO, Gorbel Inc.
Additionally, the Gaitway Center will be used to deliver live and web-based educational programs designed to share the learnings from the researchers with the therapists who can put it to practical use.
"We are excited that the new local Gorbel Gaitway Center will continue to work closely with practitioners to produce and enhance products that will allow us to further facilitate the functional recovery of our patients...The use of the recently installed SafeGait Body-Weight Support System has already positively impacted the functional recovery of many patients participating in therapy on the Rehabilitation Unit of UR Medicine’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation."
