Gait Training

The Centre of Movement offers an advanced method of gait training through the assistance of a ceiling hoist that simultaneously controls weight bearing, posture, and balance over a treadmill, ground or obstacles.

It creates an ideal environment for people with a wide range of impairments and functional levels to achieve a functional and efficient walking pattern.

 

 

 

 

Gait training with the ceiling hoist provides proper posture, reduces weight bearing, eliminates concerns for balance, and facilitates the training of coordinated lower extremity movement.

Static and dynamic balance

Static balance refers to control of your stationary body, while dynamic balance refers to the control you have over your body while it’s moving.

Deep core stability and hip and leg muscle control are essential for good upright posture.

Stepping Pattern

The key to promoting functional walking is to maximise motor output.

This can be done through stimulating movement mechanically and via different sensory inputs, and to create the largest possible repertoire of adaptable motor reposes and strategies.
