Thompson Health, the first full-time outpatient facility in New York State to offer their patients SafeGait Solutions
The Rehab Team at Thompson Health includes over 65 licensed, credentialed professionals from many disciplines. The rehabilitation specialists use SafeGait 360° to maximize the benefit and potential of their treatment procedures.
The first patient to use SafeGait 360° had suffered a stroke and experienced anxiety over the potential for a fall during previous PT sessions. He was reassured each time a fall was prevented and with every session in the system, he gained more confidence and pushed himself harder.
Physical therapist Nancy Buerman, in the field for 35 years, says the SafeGait 360° is a welcome addition to the tools available in Thompson’s Rehabilitation Services Department because it takes away the concern regarding a potential fall, not only for the patient but for the therapist as well. ”It gives you the freedom to try more difficult tasks, especially floor-to-stand and resistance walking – something you wouldn’t try with someone who has poor balance,” she says.

McLaren Flint became the second hospital in the state of Michigan to install and use the SafeGait 360° System when it opened its new Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit in late fall of 2017. This special system allows patients to walk and challenge their balance without the risk of falling.
