Variable Walker / Treadmill

Variable Walker
Variable Walker

People with disabilities who have just been fitted with prostheses need different gait exercises to getting used to their prostheses. Patients with broken bones also need gait training to help them recover leg function to avoid long and short legs. The gait exercises include common terrain such as levelling, ramps and stairs. Patients now often need to use various rehabilitation equipment in these rehabilitation exercises. The Variable Walker is a gait training machine that can simulate three different terrains, flat, slope and stair. Each machine allows one patient to perform gait recovery exercises in a variety of scenarios.
