I am weak on my right side. I have not been able to walk well due to weakness in my right leg for a while, how can this help me?
Conventional therapy to improve your walking involves registered physiotherapists repeatedly walking with you over and over as you hopefully gain strength. One problem with conventional gait training is a patient’s muscles fatigue too quickly. Affected limbs are not able to support your body weight hence the difficulty walking.
Improvements in ambulation following a stroke are hard because a person has difficulty reaching a level of intensity, frequency and duration of therapeutic exercises that results in changes in function.
The Alter G enables a person with decreased strength in their lower extremity to train at an appropriate intensity, frequency and duration to benefit and achieve a training effect given their weakened state allowing them to practice at a therapeutic intensity and obtain the benefit of training and repetition.
