AutoStep Gait Aid

AutoStep was developed by two pediatric physical therapists to assist with gait in a variety of patients, from the high functioning patient who needs to work on gait refinement to the very low functioning patient who is unable to take independent steps. It attaches to many walkers, and works with most LiteGait models on and off the treadmill. Allows both hip and knee flexion for LE advancement, promotes increased stride length, dissociation of the extremities and foot clearance during swing phase. Designed to assist and train symmetrical stepping. Focuses on equal stride length bilaterally and allows for leg dynamic stretching/ROM.
