At Second Step, helping people walk again, more independently, is what we are all about

People are changing their lives using the Second Step Gait Harness System

Making the impossible, possible again

 
Second Step is committed to helping people walk and stand again, through the results oriented, clinically proven Gait Harness System® (GHS) and NEW Gait Harness System® II (GHSII). Many severely injured individuals who are using the GHS, and who were unable to walk in the 5, 10 and 20 plus years post their injuries, are now beginning to stand and walk again for the first time. The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments. 
 
Discover how Second Step is "Helping People Walk Again" by keeping users and caregivers safe, simultaneously facilitating healthy, functional therapy outcomes.

LEARN ABOUT the Gait Harness System

The Gait Harness System is…

MORE THAN a walking frame

MORE THAN a gait trainer

MORE THAN a standing frame

R. O’Toole.,MSW, President of Informed EldercareDecisions, Inc., nationally published author and speaker, Boston MA
 
“Great to see. What fantastic effort, innovation and determination. I salute you all.”

“It is marvelous product and I wish you well. Your mission is noble.”
Lesa M., child of post stroke user, New York City NY
 
“The Gait Harness System is a truly marvelous device that could no doubt help thousands of people actually regain their mobility, not just spend the rest of their lives being pushed around in a wheel chair or riding on a scooter.”
Joe Mitchell, Financial Aid Center for Long Term Care, Inc., Grants Pass OR
 
“I am so happy we could purchase this directly from you. It arrived yesterday. I can’t wait! It looks fantastic. Thanks so much for everything.”

Margaret Giannini, M.D., F.A.A.P, Director, Office on Disability, Health and Human Services, Washington DC
 
“I have a group of patients at a facility who were all told they would never walk again—after using the Gait Harness System, only two now use a wheelchair as their primary locomotion.”
William Thornton MPT, Lead Physical Therapist, The Center for Spinal Cord Injury Recovery®, Rehab Institute of Michigan, Detroit MI
 
"I have a tremendous respect for the work you do and wish you nothing but continued success. It's comforting, at the very least, to know that even 3,000 miles away, there are still kind, caring people out there who understand what one encounters in caring for a disabled loved one. Your product is ingenious and should receive more accolades." 
Scott A., son of father with stroke, orthopedic, SCI issues, Staten Island NY

We see the time when people will no longer be sent to institutions (or sent home from institutions) with the message they will never walk again.

In most cases they can walk again, if given the opportunity.

 Walking again can change your life

Your health cannot wait
