Gorbel Inc. Introduces SafeGait ACTIVE

June 5, 2018

Gorbel® Inc., the maker of innovative unweighting and fall protection devices for the rehabilitation and industrial markets, today announced the launch of SafeGait ACTIVE™; an overhead fall protection device that allows patients to move dynamically through treatment sessions. SafeGait ACTIVE™ is designed to treat patients further along the continuum of care and is ideal for hospital based or private practice outpatient clinics. Whether rehabbing an orthopedic or athletic injury, or providing falls management programs for aging adults, SafeGait ACTIVE™ allows therapists to  improve patient’s functional skills without limitations.

 

“Listening to customers and focusing our development efforts on addressing their needs has continuously allowed us to launch technology solutions that have real impact on improving the lives of patients and therapists,” Gorbel® President Brian Reh explains. “From that input, Gorbel® is proud to launch yet another ‘first’ in the rehabilitation space. SafeGait ACTIVE™ fills a major hole in the non-robotic, overhead fall protection device market.”

ACTIVATE Your Patients

Unlike passive or static devices that limit travel to the horizontal plane, SafeGait ACTIVE™ allows for the freedom of multi-directional movement while also protecting patients as they practice gait, balance, transfer and stair exercises. Exclusive Dynamic Fall Protection (DFP) technology distinguishes between a patient’s intentional movement downward, (i.e. to sit) and a fall so therapists can safely challenge patients and facilitate error. The unique DFP Sensitivity Levels allow therapists to modify fall protection sensitivity to accommodate patients at varying stages of independence.

Instill Confidence

Confidence is an important part of the recovery process for a patient and a clinician. Without fear of falling patients can make faster functional gains as they accept higher level challenge and activity during rehabilitation. SafeGait ACTIVE™ provides therapists greater freedom to safely challenge patients during functional mobility tasks.

“SafeGait ACTIVE™ significantly expands the treatment opportunities for therapists as the only fully dynamic system on the market with a price point that is affordable to even small clinics,” stated Reh. “Our innovation pipeline is looking ever forward and we are excited to continue to take rehab to new heights.”

Pursue Activities without Limits

With SafeGait ACTIVE™, therapists can safely challenge patients with more repetitions and intensity as they practice comprehensive activities of daily living. SafeGait ACTIVE™ accommodates a wide range of treatment options that support more productive therapy sessions by mitigating fall risk and enabling multidirectional movement.
