Gait Harness System for Veterans & VAMCS
Thank you for your military service and sacrifice for our country
Second Step is a veteran owned company. Our parents were also veterans, and we have children who are active duty military. We are committed to helping veterans learn to walk again overground using the full support Second Step Gait Harness System (GHS).
Veterans working through a wide variety of standing and walking again challenges experience stronger, faster recoveries, and better psychological and physical health using the GHS.
The GHS all-in-one standing and walking frame was created as the solution to the problem of helping the veteran comfortably and safely learn to stand again and walk again when working through disabling illness or injury.
The GHS has been used successfully by VA Medical Centers, Polytrauma hospitals, Community Living Centers, in- and outpatient clinics and with veterans living at home.
Which Veterans can be helped by the Gait Harness System?
A complete transitional care system, the GHS is very versatile and can easily adapt to the myriad of veteran needs. The System offers supported safety while standing and walking upright.
The GHS is intended for veterans who have walking and standing challenges due to widely divergent medical conditions, including, but not limited to:
Best Pricing for Veterans and VA Facilities
Second Step is contracted with the VA and offers best pricing to veterans and VA facilities. Our products are 100% US designed, manufactured, and assembled.
The GHS offers more efficient PT and OT
Without the use of the GHS, many injuries require 3 therapists working with one veteran at a time. The GHS allows for a one-on-one ratio, freeing up PTs and OTs to work with more veterans.
The System also creates more independence for the veteran in a safe, comfortable environment while therapy is being done.
The GHS is easy to use, portable, safe for therapist and veteran and saves the VA and the veteran money compared to other therapy and equipment options.
VA facilities are provided Competency Checklists to ensure proper staff training.
The Second Step Gait Harness System allows veterans to increase their level of functioning and perform greater movement than they could perform safely without the GHS’s support during overground training.
