Stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability. Impairments resulting from stroke lead to persistent difficulties with walking.
Walking ability has important health implications, providing protective effects against secondary complications common after a stroke such as heart disease, musculoskeletal issues, and systemic disorders.
For a stroke survivor, learning to walk again should be a top priority.
Even if someone has been primarily wheelchair or bed-bound for years, with little intervention, they can achieve significant results and greater quality of life with the proper program, and with proper equipment.
At Second Step, we have a passion to help clients preserve and build positive therapy outcomes and improve walking recoveries with our products, including thePractitioner’s Gait Harness System IIand theHome User’s Gait Harness System II.
We believe the GHSII provides greater versatility than any standing frame, walking frame, standing walker or gait trainer. Visit our Product Demonstration Gallery
