Restoring Mobility to a Paraplegic Using the NewGait

A Case Report

The purpose of this case report was to describe how the NewGait was used during spinal cord rehab to help an incomplete paraplegic become a functional ambulator

Development

"She was using a wheelchair as her primary source of mobility. She was a farm girl and it was her goal to not only walk again, but to run and chase her cows back into the fence."

Progress

"Within three treatment sessions, patient was able to start walking on the treadmill both forward and backward without upper extremity support while wearing the NewGait."

Success

"One month after the NewGait was initiated, the patient started running while wearing it. This was a huge milestone as she was told she would never run again. Three weeks later, she ran a 12-minute mile."

Hard to Believe?

We Know, That's Why We Tested It!

Clinical Study on NewGait Effectiveness in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis

%

Faster Walking Speed

"Participants increased their walking speed enough to characterize them as independent in activities of daily living."

%

Improved Step Length

"All 12 participants became more symmetrical in their gait, as specified by step length."

%

Less Percieved Effort

"Participants were able to walk faster with less effort."

“The addition of the NewGait to physical therapy is beneficial to improving walking performance in persons with multiple sclerosis, and using this device may help improve quality of life by improving gait and ambulatory status.”

"After using the NewGait device, participants experienced significant increases in balance confidence and lower limb coordination."

“The experimental group experienced larger improvements in balance confidence, and coordination when compared to the control group."

After being hit by a hit-and run-driver, Rodney had to learn how to walk again. He was introduced to the NewGait after a lengthy recovery. Rodney recorded the time it took him to walk 2.25 miles every morning for two months while wearing the NewGait. See the incredible improvements and his story below.
