Extra support for walking is sometimes necessary when a person struggles with balance and/or weakness. When choosing a walking support product, please talk with your therapist/doctor about what is the best solution for how the user moves. Keep in mind that it is important to consider posture, energy level and goals (exercise, learning to walk, day-to-day use or just exploring and having fun!).
Gait training can mean multiple things depending upon who is asked for their definition. Gait training is seen by some as a way to increase independence in all aspects of mobility with the ultimate goal to be independent without adaptive equipment or the least restrictive equipment. Others define gait training as a means for mobility exploration and aerobic exercise with the goal being overall health and increased independence with transfers. Both of these are accurate descriptions which define gait training for users with different long-term potential for independence. Now the question is, how does one know which group describes the need? The answer can best be found through discussions with the physicians and therapists that are familiar with the users diagnosis.
