K.P., post stroke survivor, Cleveland OH

I am absolutely excited that your product is within my reach. Thank you for all that you’re doing for those that need this amazing opportunity to improve the quality of their lives (like mine). I am also very happy to think of all the smiles you deliver with each product shipment! I am very excited about your product for the opportunity it will give me.

Renè Knight, Operations Manager, Grace Center for Adult Day Services, Corvallis OR

The new Gait Harness works wonderfully! I have attached some video clips of Joe walking for the first time in the Second Step. He did over 300 ft, and at one point his assistant let him go on his own. Everyone is celebrating his successful venture in the Second Step! Grace Center can’t thank you enough, you are truly bringing a gift to our clients. Thank you!

Stacy Tomczak DPT, PT, Optimal Health Institute, Addison IL

Using the GHS has changed my patient’s life forever. At first, he needed 2 people just to assist him standing. Now, he is ambulating 40 feet with only minimal assistance to advance his left leg. He has also built up trunk stability and tolerance enough to weight bear through his legs. He continually verbalizes his excitement with each new gain. He wouldn’t be walking if it weren’t for the GHS. I can’t thank you enough for helping him achieve his goals.

Carlos Lima MD, Department of Neurology, Hospital de Egas Moniz, Lisbon, Portugal

I am suggesting my patients get a Second Step GHS device to them, because we know that over-ground training gives the best recovery results.

Antonio P., brother of Spastic Cerebral Palsy survivor, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Today we have received the GHS. Here is a picture of my sister using it. Thank you very much. We hope it will help her a lot.

Bob Smith, SCI survivor, Harrison Township MI

The Second Step Gait Harness System has helped me tremendously. I have tried body weight support treadmill training, with both an overhead lift and with the Lokomat. I’ve also tried the Litegait. I’ve also combined the Lokomat with the GHS and the latest therapy from the Rehab Institute of Michigan. What the GHS allowed me to do is walk at my own pace, with or without assistance. It allowed me to fully weight bear and with little to no discomfort, unlike every other harness. And that’s not even mentioning the obvious benefits, like endurance cardio.

Danielle Cheung, PT, PCS, Pediatric Certified Specialist, Southern CA

Our client is a 13-year-old girl with a diagnosis of hypotonic cerebral palsy. She has very low tone in trunk and is low functioning. She uses the GHS at school and at home. She was a perfect candidate for the GHS, as there aren’t a lot of options for her needs. The classroom aide has started trying it in different places on campus, and she is doing even better than she was in the classroom. She is walking up to 150 feet and is happy!

John T., SCI & LE amputee survivor, Bannister MI

I didn’t walk for 14 years. With the GHS, now I can walk four laps around the track with small breaks in between and also crawl about the same.

Marlene M., cerebellar degeneration survivor, Corvallis OR

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. This has helped me become stronger. It’s great to feel my muscles again.

Tera Stegner, Director of Community Relations, Grace Center for Adult Day Services, Corvallis OR

A key component of Grace Center’s post-rehab specialty is the use of our two Second Step GHS ambulators. These have often provided our participants the ability to walk for the first time in years or ever in their adult life. Not only does its use help combat muscle atrophy, avoid pressure sores, build strength and boost self-esteem, it also provides participants new found freedoms such as strolling in our garden, working in our raised beds, and doing things that bring them joy. The GHS’s help Grace Center remain one of the most specialized adult day centers in the state and a place that people are given the chance to thrive.

Paul R., SCI survivor, Wales, United Kingdom

I am a T12/L1 paraplegic. I found the Gait Harness System on the internet after I couldn’t find anything like it here in Europe. The GHS has helped me a great deal in rehab, I can easily move it from rehab back and forth to my home.

Lesa M., child of post stroke survivor, New York City NY

It is marvelous product and I wish you well. Your mission is noble.

Malissa R., wife of BI and post stroke survivor, Alma AR

My husband had a brain aneurysm 11 years ago, when he was just 21 years old, followed by multiple strokes. I do daily therapy with him at home. He tried different equipment pieces at his clinic, but they all cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. He loves how the Gait Harness fits him, and is doing great.

Allan C., child of Parkinson’s Disease survivor, Phoenix AZ

I appreciate your product. May you continue to help those in need.

Jim F., veteran and MS survivor, Baltimore MD

My GHS arrived this afternoon. That is a quality piece of equipment! Packaging was very good and Old Dominion Freight Service provided very smooth delivery. My wife assembled the GHS, I put on the harness and rehab work has started at a new level. Thank you for this very quality piece of equipment. Rehab work will be much safer with the GHS in my home (for both me and my therapist).

Richard L., parent of post stroke survivor, Medina OH

After his stroke, we have been using the Gait Harness System with our 43-year-old son Joseph to train him in walking with his full weight on his feet. It will take him a long time to learn to walk by himself, even with a walker. But with the GHS, he can develop his movement safely.

David R., son-in-law of post stroke survivor, Hong Kong China

We are impressed at the logic, simplicity and engineering of the GHS. It certainly seems to be superior to the “Lite Gait” device which is apparently sold here in Hong Kong.

Nicole Prieto-Lewis, Director of the Gait and Balance Research Laboratory, Gainesville VA, Gainesville FL

Patients cannot fall using the GHS as the harness is designed to support their full body weight if necessary. No walker or cane can compare to the safety of this System.

A. Flood, PT, James A Haley Veteran’s Hospital, Tampa FL

One of my veteran clients, who has a lower extremity amputation, lives in a rural area in South Carolina and inconsistently received therapy services at home. We helped the family get a GHS for them to work on his ambulation at home once he was discharged.

Amy F.,SCI survivor, Elkader IA

I can walk with KAFO’s around the track using the Second Step GHS and with little assistance from my trainer along with crawling forwards, backwards, and side to side. I’m making progress with my stability along with increasing my upper body strength. If it weren’t for this program, I don’t think I’d be doing the unbelievable things I was told I would never do again.

Margaret Giannini M.D., F.A.A.P, Director, Office on Disability, Health and Human Services, Washington DC

The Second Step program is most creative. It provides much-needed rehabilitation support for individuals with disabilities in long-term care facilities. Wishing you every success.

Andrew Allgood, TBI survivor, San Jose CA

Andrew was 26 years old when the motorcycle he was driving was struck by a car on the freeway. The result was a TBI that left him in a deep coma in addition to multiple site fractures. His therapy team, Advantage Rehab Services, were able to set new mobility goals by utilizing the GHS to improve Andrew’s gait pattern and quality. Andrew can now use the GHS to walk in the community on a daily basis with supervision. “Using the Second Step GHS made me feel free to move, I felt more positive and confident. I love walking again; I wasn’t supposed to walk again.” His biggest rehab accomplishment is “being able to walk using the gait trainer independently in the sun.” He worked over a year to meet that goal!

Knute M., TBI survivor, Corvallis OR

After my accident, I didn’t walk for 22 years because everyone was afraid I would fall. Using the Gait Harness System to walk again is my dream come true!

Kristen W., wife of post stroke survivor, Shrewsbury MA

I just wanted to check in and let you know how much Art loves his Second Step.

Rose Rodriguez, wife of post stroke survivor, Tampa FL

My 79-year-old husband had a stroke 7 months ago, and a complete knee replacement 7 weeks ago. Without a doubt, the safety feature using the harness in the ambulator gives him complete confidence in case he has to rest or loses his balance. He is able to walk and use his legs, hips, shoulders and arms as naturally as possible.

Ester Valazquez, MSPT, HealthSouth Rehabilitation, Tampa FL

In 5 years of on-again/off-again rehabilitation, one resident failed to develop independent ambulation to cover even short distances. With integrating the GHS into the treatment regimen, this resident made tremendous progress in independence, ambulating over 200-300 feet.

Scott A., son of father with stroke, orthopedic & SCI issues, Staten Island NY

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.

Kay T., fiancée of acquired brain injury survivor, Redondo Beach CA

With all of M.’s ongoing medical issues, using the Gait Harness System has been the ONE thing which has seemed to help him. We are so glad we have it.

M. Rosalia Arellano MSPT, Scripps Mercy Hospital, Outpatient Neuro Rehabilitation Department, San Diego CA

I believe the GHS would be beneficial in the home. It would help with carry over and safe household ambulation, decreasing risk of injury for patient and caregiver.

Lisa Stevens, PT, Senior Physical Therapist, Brain and Spine Recovery Center, Brackenridge Hospital, Austin TX

The Second Step system allows earlier ambulation of stroke and other neurologically compromised patients by creating a virtually fall-free environment. While it may still take two or even three therapy staff in the most involved cases, initiating stepping as early as possible is critical to ultimately achieving functional gait. With the framework and the harness, I was able to move straight to standing and limited gait instead of being stuck in transfer training for the first day or two. It makes the process possible from the bedside, which allowed the staff members to work without a dedicated gym space when necessary.
