SpeedMaker introduces NewGait, described as a tool for physical therapists to use in clinics and for patients with paraplegia who experience bilateral dorsiflexor and quadricep weakness.

NewGait features a combination of straps, braces, and elastic bands that work to help increase stride length and stride frequency.

Patients with multiple sclerosis, TBI, amputations, lower leg injuries, paraplegics, total hip or knee replacements, strokes, lower back injuries, and osteoarthritis could benefit from the product’s use, according to the manufacturer’s website.
