    Dynamic, activity-based physical rehabilitation is demonstrably the best recourse for someone recovering from a disabling neurological trauma. Ample research goes further to suggest that gait training and locomotor training, the act of forcing your body to bear weight and take steps (even if you are unable to contribute much to the process with your own muscle power), is a powerful means of improving your health and even your chances of a fruitful recovery. But you probably already knew this.

    The problem? It is difficult to animate an uncooperative adult body. It usually requires a large robotic machine or several people manually moving your legs.

    The Spartan solves this problem. It fills the massive gap between robotic walking machines and the sloppy crazy-walk one gets from direct manual assistance (the good old “stool-push” method in which the PT gets behind the patient in a walker, uses his/her shoulder to keep the patient’s hips forward, and alternates pushing each leg forward at the knee and then holding them in extension).

    Guided by the medical expertise of several doctors of physical therapy, the Spartan inventor packed over four years of rehab experience into a simple and elegant form. From the very beginning, the Spartan was intended to empower both the user (the disabled individual doing therapy) and the operator (the PT or whoever is gripping the handles).
    The user is better able to focus and mentally engage with the process of walking. The Spartan will smooth over their gait pattern so that common compensatory techniques like hip-hiking and building momentum become unnecessary. The user’s concerns are with the positioning of their trunk, weight shifting, mental focus, and contributing to the stepping pattern with whatever power they can muster. If the user cannot contribute at all with muscles in their legs, gait training can still be highly beneficial.

    The operator assumes the advantageous position of being directly in front of the user.

    They are able to evaluate the quality of the user’s gait pattern and make instant adjustments. They can feel for any power the user generates in their legs through the handles and lessen the amount of assistance they provide accordingly. Small tweaks in the operator’s arm motions translate to corrections in the user’s gait kinematics.
    Strap it on (<2 minutes), get up and go, and rest assured that the positions, angles, velocities, and accelerations in your lower limbs and joints are regulated.

    Spartan manipulations can control:

    • Hip flexion and extension
    • Knee flexion and extension
    • Step width variability
    • Stride length
    • Step frequency
    • Dorsiflexion of the feet
    • Internal and external rotation of the feet
    • Inversion and eversion of the feet
