HOW TO PUT IT ON
The NewGait would not be what it is today without innovation, originality, and unconventional problem solving.
We understand that no two patients are the same, so the highly customizable nature of the NewGait will require adjustments for optimal performance. Follow the steps below for general NewGait donning.
If you have not been previously fitted with the NewGait by a trained clinician, please consult your physical therapist or find a trained NewGait clinician here.

THE WAIST BELT
Secure the waist belt tightly just above the hips, ensuring that the NewGait logo is facing forward and the D-rings are in proper position.
LEG STRAPS (Thigh)
Tightly Secure the leg straps just above the knee. Ensure that the D-rings align with the waist belt, and attach the assistance bands.
LEG STRAPS (Calf)
For foot drop assistance; tightly Secure the leg straps just below the knee. Connect the assistance band from the most distant shoelace to the D-ring.
SHOULDER STRAPS (FRONT)
Secure the front of the shoulder straps by connecting the buckles with the waist belt.
SHOULDER STRAPS (BACK)
Secure the back of the shoulder straps by drawing the left strap under the right arm, and the right strap under the left arm, as to make the straps cross on the back.
Finally, inhale and hold a deep breath while securing the velcro just below the sternum.
