SPARTAN-ASSISTED GAIT TRAINING
A POWERFUL TOOL FOR ASSISTING SOMEONE WITH PARALYSIS TO TAKE STEPS.
THE SPARTAN OPENS THE DOOR TO GAIT TRAINING LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
We call it Spartan-Assisted Gait Training (SAGT). A Spartan 'operator' manipulates the device to help the 'trainee' move their legs with the correct form and speed. Elastic cables and cleverly-designed swinging arms further help to produce a natural stepping pattern, or "gait."
THE SPARTAN EDGE
SAGT offers clinicians and home trainers the ability to perform robotics-quality gait training at fraction of the price. The biggest benefits of the Spartan, however, are the changes it makes in the lives of its user. Take a look at some of its unique features that make it the best gait training tool available:
SPARTAN ASSISTED GAIT TRAINING BEGINS IN THREE EASY STEPS
We find platform walkers on wheels tend to offer the best mix of support and mobility.
This involves strapping the cuffs on, choosing cables for the foot(if needed), and adjusting the device for the trainee's height.
The trainee manages weight shifts (if unable, bring in a third person to help) and the operator moves the Spartan. The operator should also observe gait form and give verbal cues, if needed.
SAGT Sample Training Protocol
Hundres of well-formed steps in a short time
- 5-minutes set up
- Support with a rolling platform walker or standard basic walker
- 8 to 10 SAGT bouts, each consisting of 40-50 full step cycles
- 1 to 2-mmminute resets between bouts
The Spartan maximizes the benefits of Assisted Gait Training
