The Lite Run Gait Trainer and soft exosuits are a striking innovation in gait therapy. Stroke survivors and others relearning to walk benefit. The exosuit “unweights” patients by up to 50% as they attach to a fall-proof walker that maintains their pressure and thus the unweighting. The device docks to a wheelchair and assists in lifting patients up out of the chair. Patients up to 350 lbs. weight may be supported. In a clinical study, patients in Lite Run walked over twice as far, and stayed vertical over twice the time as patients in a harness system.
