A Testimony from Physical Therapist and Co-Owner of UP Rehab Services (Marquette, MI)

PT, MPT, OCS, Cert. MDT, AT, ATC

I have been provided the benefit of working with Benga and Jordan during the inception of the NewGait. From the beginning, I was intrigued by the product. One of our physical therapists, Kim Spranger, had the epiphany of taking the SpeedMaker product and using it on clients to change gait. The result with the first client was incredible. The client had sustained a spinal cord injury and had surgery to stabilize her spine and decompress her nerves. The client had to use 2 canes to walk before she used the NewGait. After her treatment with the NewGait, she could run while wearing the NewGait. Kim actually ran a 5K with this client. This prompted a study at NMU. This study found that when clients who have MS wear the NewGait, their gait speed improved statistically which of course made the client more energy efficient which is a life changing effect.

Being a physical therapist who owns his own business, I was very excited to support my team of therapists who wanted to use the NewGait to help treat their clients. The NewGait has been very successful with multiple client types in our practice. One of our physical therapists, Cathy Ruprecht, has been using the NewGait on clients who suffer from chronic pain and is seeing remarkable results. I have seen the improvements first hand with my father-in-law, who was treated by Cathy for chronic low back pain. He can now walk with improved cadence and duration with much less pain and has improved his quality of life.

I know that it works and see it every day in our practice. I believe in this product and we currently have a NewGait in every one of our outpatient clinics. I have no financial interest in this product. I support this product because I see the results firsthand that it works! I strongly endorse this product to be utilized by all therapists who want to improve their client’s quality of life, improve their client’s functional mobility and lessen their client’s pain.
