Now Available: State-of-the-Art Gait Training Device to Help Millions Walk More Normally Again
Date:5/18/2009

Can Be Used by the Elderly and Patients With Movement Disorders at Home and in a Variety of Healthcare Settings

HAIFA, Israel, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions of people in the US have diseases or conditions that affect their ability to walk. For many of them, traditional walking aids such as canes and walkers are a disappointing substitute for being able to walk normally and live independently.

Now there's a high-tech yet easy-to-use gait-training device, the GaitAid Virtual Walker from MediGait LTD, that is bringing these people new hope for more normal walking -- and living.

GaitAid Helps Restore Normal Walking Patterns

GaitAid works two ways to achieve often-remarkable results:

  1. GaitAid users commonly find themselves walking normally from their first step. But the immediate results are just the start of GaitAid's effects.
  2. Over time, the device "rewires" the wearer's brain to follow a healthier walking pattern -- an effect that frequently continues even when it isn't being worn. This process (called neuroplasticity) essentially creates new, healthy nerve circuits that bypass the disease-damaged areas associated with walking.

A Breakthrough Device

Developed and patented by MIT-educated Yoram Baram, PhD -- Founder and CEO of MediGait LTD -- the GaitAid Virtual Walker is the only gait-trainer of its kind, combining virtual-reality programming and real-time motion detection in a simple-to-use, cell-phone-sized device.

Large US Population Could Be Helped

The GaitAid Virtual Walker is transforming the lives of many people coping with illness and aging who had thought they could never walk normally again. But these GaitAid users are only part of a much larger population of people like them, ov
