Limitations of Conventional Gait Therapy
Manual Treadmill Training
- Therapists are exposed to physical strain
- More than one therapist is required
- Limited training duration and intensity
- Limited feedback for patient
- Gait pattern is neither reproducible nor physiological
Advantages of Lokomat Therapy
Effective Rehabilitation Training
Robot-assisted therapy enables effective and intensive training to increase the strength of muscles and the range of motion of joints in order to improve walking.
Most Physiological Movement
The physiological movement of the lower extremities is ensured by the individually adjustable patient interface. Additionally, the hip and knee joint angles can be adjusted during training to the patient’s specific needs.
Optimal Patient Challenge
During rehabilitation, patients need to be challenged. Therapists can help patients reach their goals by setting the training parameters according to their performance.
Patients are motivated to reach their goals with various game-like exercises.
This Augmented Performance Feedback (APF) maximizes the effect of Lokomat training. Studies have shown when using APF, muscle activation can be considerably increased.
The Lokomat allows therapists to focus on the patient and the actual therapy. It enhances staff efficiency and safety, leading to higher training intensity, more treatments per therapist, and consistent, superior patient care.
State-of-the-Art Gait Rehabilitation
Patients are increasingly more informed about what the most effective and efficient therapy is, and they use this information to decide where to go for their rehabilitation.
All patients look to receive the most effective training possible and the Lokomat ensures high-quality rehabilitation—a great reason why a patient might decide on your clinic.
The Lokomat is the world‘s leading robotic rehabilitation device that provides highly repetitive and the most physiological movement training.

What Experts Say
Improve Efficiency & Intensity
Fewer Resources Needed
More Therapy Sessions per Week
More Patients Treated
Increased Therapy Intensity
“Unlike gait training without the assistance of robotics, the Lokomat allows the operating clinician to observe the patient’s motion sequence more easily and from another perspective and to intervene, whenever necessary. Gait training becomes less personnel intensive and less burdening for the clinicians.”
