Weill Cornell Medical School Teams with MediGait to Get the Elderly, Sufferers of Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis “Back on their Feet”
Date:5/6/2013

treatment for seniors recovering from a fall.

The inventor of the GaitAid, Yoram Baram, is a Technion professor of computer science and Winnipeg Chair of biomedical engineering who worked with NASA on advanced helicopter navigation systems. One evening in 1993, he was relaxing in front of the television when he happened to see a program about Parkinson’s “freezing”: a condition in which the afflicted could not get their brains to communicate with their legs. Baram saw immediately that his work with helicopters was directly applicable to freezing and spent the next 15 years developing the GaitAid. During clinical research, Baram learned the device created for Parkinson’s disease is also helpful for Multiple Sclerosis, cerebral palsy, brain stroke and seniors with a gait impairment.

According to Baram, “Falls and fear of falling for the elderly is a big problem without a standard treatment approach. With the current state of health-care in the US, it is especially important to find efficient methods for prevention and rehabilitation.”
