The LokoHelp is an electromechanical gait trainer that was developed to relieve therapist's labor-intensive task of guiding the patient's legs during locomotion therapy. Locomotion therapy using the LokoHelp not only assists therapists, but also improves gait symmetry and the quality of therapy for the patient.
PATENTED "END EFFECTOR" GAIT TRAINER
The LokoHelp® is an electromechanical gait-training system based on the “end effector” principle. The mechanical support of the standing/swinging- leg cycle is accomplished by using the feet as the last link in the kinematic chain. The patient should not be moved passively but should instead work along with the machine as much as possible. Ideally, the extensions of the knee and hip should be controlled by the patient.
POSTURAL TRAINING FUCTIONALITY
Postural control, in addition to standing and the swinging of the legs, is essential for the ability to walk on the ground independently. Consequently, during LokoHelp® training, the patient’s trunk and pelvis are not rigidly fixed. Thus, additional postural requirements can be identified for patient training through appropriate exercises.
The LokoHelp®’s design facilitates added support from the therapist whenever necessary. The patient’s hip and knee joints, as well as the anterior and posterior thigh muscles, are accessible from all sides during LokoHelp® training.
THE MULTIFUNCTIONAL THERAPY SYSTEM
The quick removal of the LokoHelp® gait trainer makes it easy to use the treadmill and weight support system for other applications. The main components: treadmill, weight support, and gait trainer, encourage effective application of therapy in all phases of gait training.
LokoHelp® therapy dramatically reduces the time and expenses associated with the training of therapy personnel. Accordingly, given the short preparation time, more efficient throughput can be achieved. The LokoHelp® system is affordable and inexpensive to operate, and it pays high dividends through more productive therapy sessions.
