Neurological Disorder Success Stories

 Exercise after neurological disorders is imperative for healthy recovery

Safe exercise and walking are very important for people working through neurological issues. Supported, safe exercise leads to a longer, healthier life and reduces the risk of falling.

Over ground walking is an effective means to regain greater independence of gait. Research confirms ongoing, regular ambulation is highly beneficial to those working with chronic balance, standing and walking issues. As you will see below, progress may be made both immediately and in the months and years to come.

Adam’s Story

Adam was born with cerebral palsy. Through 36 years of painful surgeries and excruciating physical therapy, Adam didn’t complain. His mind was set on one goal: to walk. This video shows Adam up and walking by himself after 4 times using the Gait Harness System, and how he can correct movement pattern. See more here and watch his progress one week later.

Marlene’s Story

The GHS is allowing Marlene, a woman with cerebellar degeneration and severe balance disturbance, to walk again. Marlene shares, “Using the Gait Harness System has been a life changing experience. It is allowing me to restore my ability and confidence. It’s hard work, but it’s good work. It’s great to feel my muscles again!” See her progress after 8 months, and then after a year and a half.

Jimmy’s Story

Jimmy is a US Air Force veteran and retired Pro Golfer. In 2001, Jimmy was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  Jimmy says “Using the Second Step has been amazing for me and for so many others.  The comfort of knowing I’m going to be safe is #1. It was a big relief to me because if I’m in the GHS and I fall, I’m safe. Second Step was there for me in each and every way.”

Brenda’s Story

Brenda is delighted to dance again using the Gait Harness System. Dance requires mental, physical, emotional and social skills. Combining these complex functions together is beneficial to brain and overall physical health and mobility.

Nancy‘s Story

Nancy has secondary progressive MS. Over the years, she has struggled more and more with walking due to progressive weakness and muscle tone. She relies heavily on her arms to stand. At home, her walking distance is limited primarily by upper body fatigue and lower leg spasms. Using the Gait Harness System  allows her to take some stress off her wrists and elbows and to free up the therapist’s hands without compromising safety. Nancy has more than doubled her walking distance, and she no longer reports disruption in walking due to lower leg spasms.
