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

er 8 million, who could potentially be helped by the device:

  • 500,000 with Parkinson's Disease,
  • Up to 350,000 with Multiple Sclerosis,
  • An estimated 800,000 with Cerebral Palsy,
  • 6,500,000 Stroke survivors, and
  • The elderly, of whom 30% fall at least once per year -- 50% of those over 80.

The short training sessions facilitate GaitAid's use to improve walking in institutional and rehabilitation settings as well as at home.

The GaitAid Virtual Walker is available for purchase by individuals or their caregivers as well as physicians, physical therapists, hospital rehabilitation clinics, nursing homes, and assisted-living communities who wish to offer the training as a value-added service.

About MediGait LTD and GaitAid Development:

Yoram Baram received his PhD from MIT and is a Professor of Computer Science and incumbent of the Roy Matas / Winnipeg Chair in Biomedical Engineering at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. The idea for the GaitAid Virtual Walker was sparked 12 years ago while Professor Baram was designing a mechanism for NASA to navigate low-flying helicopters around obstacles. The concept of the design, which Professor Baram later applied to development of the GaitAid trainer, is that the optical images of objects help the observer navigate, stabilize, and pace movement in space.
