In today’s healthcare environment, clinical benefits of a device must be matched with an equally compelling economic value.

With SafeGait, multiple therapists are no longer required to work in tandem as, in most cases, the assistance of one therapist is all that is required. Gone are the days of waiting for other therapists “to break away from their treatments” to lend a hand or of limiting the number of mobility trials a patient can complete in one session.

Integrating variable BWS with fall protection in a way that enables therapists to challenge patients to perform functional tasks is critical to their recovery. SafeGait facilitates early mobilization, heightened intensity and increased repetitions.

We have been able to attract more patients and increase daily patient volume. Since we installed SafeGait® our patient volume has increased by over 10%.
