Safety & Support
Joe Millen MPT has been practicing physical therapy for almost 30 years. Here he demonstrates how the Gait Harness System supports the client and functional use. With the GHS, many people are walking again for the first time in the 5, 10, and 20+ years since their illness or injury.
Joe shows how to use the Second Step Gait Harness System at a physical therapy clinic. Sometimes, a patient knows exactly what the therapist wants but doesn’t deliver, whether due to inability, pain, or boredom. Innovative tools like the Second Step Gait Harness System can help to overcome these challenges by engaging the patient cognitively.
Achieving functional outcomes using the Gait Harness System to experience increased recovery. Recovery means more than fixing a damaged brain or spinal cord. Recovery is empowerment, recovery is independence, recovery is dignity.
Safe, comfortable patient transfers and standing and walking again for the first time in years is now possible for many people. The Second Step Gait Harness provides increased client and caregiver/therapist safety through a greater degree of patient control during transfers, reduced forces on the lumbar spine of caregiver and patient alike, and standardized handholds for proper positioning.
Sense of Freedom
Chase Knight, Program Specialist at Grace Center for Adult Day Services shares, “I have used the Second Step Gait Harness System for 11 years with clients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries and Parkinson’s Disease. What I like best about the Second Step GHS is that it provides participants a sense of freedom, security & quells fears of falling.”
