How to perform balance and gait training with the Active Trainer sling
The Guldmann Active Trainer (gait trainer) is a walking sling for people with sufficient leg strength to stand upright, but who have difficulty balancing. The Active Trainer is a sling to help maintain standing and provide support whilst walking.
The sling supports the chest and the upper section of the back, while the straps provide support around the hips and eliminate the risk of the user “sliding out”. This walking sling is ideal for the early mobilization of patients and provides confidence and safety for both user and carer in balance training situations: sitting on the edge of the bed, standing up or actually walking.
Using the appropriate sling is essential for efficient transfers to ensure comfort, dignity and safety for the user and the care provider.
The Guldmann Active Trainer is available in several sizes and is made from polyester material. Lifting capacity of up to 255 kg/560 lbs.
The sling can be used with all Guldmann ceiling lift systems.
