The LiteGait I, models 260E and 360E, is a suspension ambulation aid and gait trainer designed for use with individuals with balance, lower extremity, neurological, or walking disabilities. This device is intended to enable therapists to safely train individuals in posture, gait, balance, and the use of assistive ambulation devices such as canes, crutches, and walkers. This unit enables the user to progress from partial to full weight bearing and may be used over ground or with treadmills. The unit consists of a four-wheeled, U-shaped base supporting a pair of height-adjustable suspension handles to which a suspension sling is attached. The sling fits around and under the user's pelvis and promotes proper posture and standing. Sitting is prevented during use. Users may face the suspension bar and use the attached handgrips for additional support, or they may face away from it for more free-standing training or to train with assistive devices. A powered lifting feature raises the user a sitting position in a wheelchair or on a mat to an upright walking posture. The lift function is controlled by a handheld pendant. POWER: Uses a rechargeable battery. DIMENSIONS: The maximum user height is 80 inches on both models. The maximum unit height is 60 inches on model 260E and 64 inches on model 360E.

The harness on both models fits girths 26 to 60 inches. CAPACITY: 260 pounds (model 260E); 360 pounds (360E). WARRANTY: One year.
