Miniwalk I Gait Trainer (106061) - Meyland-Smith
|Unit of Measure:||Ea|
|When comparing other walkers to the Meywalk and Miniwalk Gait Trainers, please remember that gait is not a linear movement. As a person steps forward, the pelvis moves down in relation to the floor, allowing for heel-strike (which provides stability) and toe-off (which provides forward propulsion). The Meywalk has a unique "spring assist" system which not only allows for this movement, but also assists the user to come back up into the mid-phase of gait.|
Most pediatric and adult Gait Trainers do not allow for this up and down movement. As a result, users must find atypical ways to elicit forward propulsion, such as "pulling through" or providing lift through their forearms.
An adult displays approximately 10 cm difference in pelvic height between the mid-phase and toe-off, and most children exhibit 4-6 cm dependent on their height.
