Getting people back on their feet since 1989

Right now, there are hundreds of thousands of people confined to beds and wheelchairs who need to have proper healthcare equipment to walk and stand again. Whether they can reestablish quality of life often depends on whether they have opportunity, and access, to effective therapy and equipment.

Today, the Second Step Gait Harness System (GHS) is used with clients living with a broad spectrum of medical conditions, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke/CVA, developmental disability, lower extremity amputation, and other neurological disorders of the central nervous system which affect balance and ambulation.

For decades, Gait Harness System products have provided caregivers, practitioners and clients a uniquely comfortable, easy to use, and effective support System to begin the work of learning to safely stand and walk again. Below, learn more about our GHS all-in-one standing frame and walking frame features and benefits.
