Gait Trainer - How to put the sling on
The Gait Trainer is a walking sling for users who have sufficient leg strength to stand upright, but need support and to feel safe during training due to reduced balance. The Gait Trainer sling provides the needed support during walking and gait training and helps the user maintain standing.
The sling supports the upper part of the body and has leg cuffs for enhanced safety. The Gait Trainer is ideal for the early mobilisation of patients, balance training, different kinds of standing or sitting exercises and gait training, and provides confidence and safety for both user and carer.
Use the Gait Trainer for:
The Guldmann Gait Trainer is available in several sizes and made from polyester material. It has a lifting capacity of up to 255 kg.
The sling is among other things designed for use in conjunction with the Guldmann Trainer Module, which is an optional feature available within the GH3+ hoist. The Trainer Module offers the possibility to use the hoist as a weight relief system in your patient rehabilitation/training program. It is possible to use the Gait Trainer sling with all of our ceiling hoists.
The sling has a Smart label with RFID technology. The data embedded in the tag on the label is a unique serial/identification number and includes the production date. The RFID tags in Guldmann slings are of the passive type and can be read with most RFID reader technologies on the market. On the sling, you will find a label with a QR code that leads to a mobile site containing links to an instruction video and user manual.
It is essential to use the appropriate sling to ensure efficient transfers with comfort, dignity and safety for the user and the care provider. For more information about how to choose the correct sling and size, please refer to the Guldmann Sling Guide or our size guide below.
