Dynamic, partial weight bearing support for your patients
Accomplish many motor skills exercise tasks to increase your patient’s capability in strength, range of motion and balance:
- Sit to stand
- Correct posture
- Weight Shifting
- Normal gait with proper coordination (timing)
- Side and back walking
- Stand to sit
Work individually with either leg of your patient: the Up n’ Go will support them and keep them stable.
Dynamic feedback aids development of neurological/Balance skills
As you work, your patient gets dynamic feedback of their body position. The patient’s pelvis is stabilized, but the Up n’ Go will move as they move to give them a “real world” sense (feedback) that is important to improving neurological/balance skills.
Improved patient self esteem
Long term success depends heavily on the patient’s motivation/cooperation. The Up n’ Go strengthens the patients self-esteem and motivation in three important ways:
- They see continuous improvement
- They are not physically being held up by the therapist/caregiver
- They feel less fear of falling because the pelvis is stabilized and supported. This leads to less muscle tension and greater cooperation
Focus more on therapy and less on merely “holding up” your patient
Use your skills not your strength! Let the Up n’ Go support your patient – from sit to stand or upright – while you focus on therapy. When you want to repeat a task, let the Up n’ Go assist you to quickly return the patient to precisely the starting posture and position that you want.
And because the Up n’ Go support level is adjustable, you can specify the degree of support that is best as your patient progresses.
