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.

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
