The Powerstep System
The PowerStep – Body Weight Support Treadmill (BWST) System for Locomotor Training and Gait Therapy. Locomotor training is an activity-based therapy that uses task-specific retraining to take advantage of the spinal cord’s capacity to relearn to stand and step after neurologic injury.
The PowerStep combines its closed-loop force feedback system with manually assisted stepping and standing to provide the optimal environment for recovery of standing and walking.
One harness is included as standard equipment.
Supplemental harnesses in the following sizes can be ordered to fit your program needs:
Pediatric: 19 1/2″ to 22″ Chest
Child: 24” to 28” Chest
Small: 28” to 33” Chest
Medium: 33” to 37” Chest
Large: 35” to 40” Chest
