The LiteGait Walkable is a gait training device that involves a harness system to partially un-weight a child when facilitating ambulation. The system can be used over a treadmill or in various other treatment positions and sessions. Evaluation is required to determine patient eligibility for treatment.
Children can be evaluated by the physical therapists for specific equipment related to mobility, seating and positioning, and home equipment needs. This can include wheelchair evaluations, walkers, strollers, bathroom equipment and more. Recommendations are made in conjunction with the equipment vendor to best meet the child’s needs.
The physical therapists also participate in multidisciplinary team meetings such as the Florence Robertson Pediatric Rehabilitation Clinic and the Multidisciplinary Evaluation Center. We participate in team meetings and make recommendations based on evaluation findings.
