educates users, caregivers, and practitioners on how the Second Step Gait Harness System II for Home Users and Gait Harness System II for Practitioners may assist the client in learning to stand and walk again.
Exercise after neurological disorders is imperative for healthy recovery
Exercise and walking are very important for people working through a broad range of neurological issues, including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, cerebellar degeneration, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and various auto-immune disorders which affect ambulation. No one doubts, of course, that any amount of exercise is better than none. Exercise is known to reduce risks for many diseases and premature death and reduce the risk of falling.
Research continues to confirm that ambulation using an overground support system, such as the Gait Harness System, is highly beneficial to those working with chronic balance, standing and walking issues. Progress may be made both immediately and in the months and years to come.
Overground walking is also an effective means to regain greater independence of gait. The Gait Harness System provides a secure, comfortable, safe environment for the neurological client to practice functional standing and walking again.
Researchers find that repetition (taking steps) and specificity of tasks (achieved by safe, supported practice using the GHS to learn to walk again) aimed at proactively regaining one’s ability to walk again after neurological disorder is vitally important.
Exercise is particularly important for brain health because it appears to ramp up blood flow through the skull not only during the actual activity but throughout the rest of the day. Researchers have found that higher levels of physical activity also led to increased levels of brain activity while doing multiple tasks.
A regular regimen of learning to stand and walk again is critical to maintaining healthy body functioning post neurological disorder. Safe exercise leads to a longer, healthier life.
