Choosing a Gait Trainer
Gait trainers offer a multitude of positioning options and prompts to encourage mobility. These include pelvic harnesses, forearm prompts/pads, trunk supports, ankle prompts and additional pads and prompts for support. These devices can provide positioning supports to facilitate a walking position (i.e. forward lean) while supporting the weight of the child. The gait trainer is responsible for “doing most of the work” as it offers postural support, weight bearing support, and facilitation prompts.
The child is still required to move their legs for movement while being supported as much as needed. The gait trainers best serve the emerging mobility users or those that require more postural support. Gait trainers can be modified to meet a child’s needs as their skill level increases by removing the prompts and postural supports.
