    Details

    The Kaye Suspension Walkers, models SW1 and SW7, support clients either in partial weight-bearing or in a fully weighted position to facilitate reciprocal movements for walking. Full weight-bearing with a harness and a suspension frame is often used for clients with impairments in balance, postural control or fear of falling. Partial weight-bearing with a harness and suspension frame is used to make the reciprocal movements for stepping easier to execute.

    The Kaye Suspension Walkers include a width and height adjustable light-weight walking frame and a manual winch to lift and lower the client and adjust the amount of weight bearing on the feet. The Kaye Suspension Walkers are available in two sizes, fitting toddlers through adults. Both models are width adjustable making it possible to adjust these products to span many treadmills and fit through doorways. This feature, along with the lightweight frame makes it possible for clients to use the Kaye Suspension Walker both for treadmill training and over ground practice.

    These products include 4 swivel casters, two with directional locks to facilitate the use over ground and 2 with stationary brakes to stabilize the system for use over a treadmill. Both models fold for storage and transportation. Kaye Suspension Walker, model SW1 adjusted to fit over a treadmill so that this child in the Kaye medium-slim harness, model 9821, can safely practice stepping even though postural control is inadequate for independent walking.

    There is increasing evidence that partial body weightbearing gait training facilitates the development of the movement components that are necessary for walking. Changes in step-stance ratios, stride and step length, symmetry, postural control, as well as speed and endurance have been reported.* As a result of this evidence, partial body weight-bearing gait training is increasingly being incorporated into physical therapy intervention for children and adults who need to develop or practice the components needed for standing and walking. The

    Kaye Suspension Walkers, models SW1 and SW7 support clients in either partial body weight-bearing or in a fully weighted position. Full weight-bearing with a harness and a suspension frame is often used for clients with impairments in balance, postural control or fear of falling. Partial weight-bearing is used to make the reciprocal movements for stepping easier to execute. The ability to vary the amount of weight on the client’s feet has been shown to be an important aspect of successful partial body weight-bearing intervention. Both models SW1 and SW7 come with a manually operated winch to assist the therapist or caregiver when lifting the client from sitting or lowering from a standing position. This winch is also used to adjust the amount of weight placed on the client’s feet when walking. This winch has an automatic locking mechanism to prevent unintended release of suspension. The Kaye Suspension Walkers are available in two sizes, fitting toddlers through adults. Both models are width adjustable making it possible to adjust these products to span many treadmills and also retract to fit through doorways and hallways. This feature along with the lightweight frame makes it possible for clients to use the Kaye Suspension Walker both for treadmill training and over ground practice.

    The SW1 and SW7 include 4 swivel casters, two with directional locks to facilitate the use over ground and two stationary locks to stabilize the system for use over a treadmill. Since all our casters roll freely, the client can practice forward and backward stepping as well as side stepping while in the unit. Both models fold for storage and transportation. Clients can be positioned in the Kaye Suspension Walker either facing the open or closed end depending on the need of the client. If the client is lifted from a chair or bench, it is easier to have the open end behind the client. This is also the position of choice if the therapist is using manual assistance to facilitate walking. If, however, the Kaye Suspension Walker is being used for standing, it may be advantageous to place the client facing the open end so that he or she can access the environment for play or interactions. Standing in the Suspension Walker permits the client to develop balance on the feet without the need for holding a support with the hands.
