The staff at the Boys Town National Research Hospital in Omaha, NE describe how Aretech’s ZeroG Gait & Balance System is helping their patients at the new Center for Human Performance Optimization.
ZeroG is being used to try activities they are not confident trying on their own in a safe environment with dynamic body-weight support. The robot tracks patient movements as they walk with no resistance for a natural environment.
As Brad Corr, PT, DPT explains, “ZeroG gives patients the opportunity to explore movements that they otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to do.”
