Gorbel Medical, a division of Gorbel Inc, has acquired StepRight LLC, manufacturer of the StepRight Stability System.

Victor, NY-based Gorbel Medical shares in a media release that the purchase of StepRight LLC helps it continue to provide new and innovative solutions for gait and balance rehabilitation.

“With the addition of StepRight to our Gorbel Medical business, we now have a complementary, unique offering for our SafeGait Solutions portfolio of rehabilitation devices,” explains Brian Reh, Gorbel president and CEO, in a media release. “The StepRight product is right in our sweet spot, and we’re excited to watch it improve the lives of patients and caregivers.”

According to the release, the StepRight Stability System is a wearable balance trainer designed to be worn over shoes to create an uneven surface, helping enable users to make functional movements out into space while mimicking the normal heel-toe pattern typically seen in walking or running.

“Research shows that incorporating increased challenge into physical therapy promotes faster recovery,” says Betty Dolce, Gorbel Medical general manager. “StepRight is an exceptional tool for adding intensity to rehabilitation as well as general exercise.”
