Mobility Assist

 

Mobility Assist™

Used to help therapists, nurses and caregivers work with patients who have difficulty with ambulation; Mobility Assist™ is a motorized stand-assist device and walker in one. Supporting correct biomechanics, patients are upraised from a seated to standing position while in a safety harness. Once standing, if they can move their legs, they can walk with Mobility Assist.

NxStep Unweighing System

 

NxStep™ Unweighing System

Supports full and partial weight bearing for early stage rehabilitation, without compromise to proper gait kinematics. The dynamic, single-point suspension accommodates pelvic rotation and vertical displacement to allow functional gait patterns to be practiced. The open frame design allows full visibility when over a treadmill or gait trainer and encourages therapist assistance and observation.

FreeStep SAS

 

FreeStep SAS

Biodex FreeStep SAS is an overhead track and harness system that provides a safe ambulation environment for both therapist and patient. Without the fear of falling, patients can focus more fully on their tasks of gait and balance. Likewise, therapists can focus on assisting, rather than supporting.
