Research shows that 300,000 individuals suffer brain injuries severe enough to require hospitalization, with 33% of these resulting in a lasting disability.
A person with a severe TBI may spend $1,000 per day in acute rehabilitation facilities. Using the Gait Harness System II may provide a more affordable, long-term solution for those who want to increase daily therapy opportunities, in their home and/or in the clinic, particularly for those who have exceeded insurance coverage for in- or out-patient clinic visits.

Please visit www.secondstepinc.com to find out more about the results oriented, clinically proven Gait Harness System® (GHS) and NEW Gait Harness System® II (GHSII). Many severely injured individuals who are using the GHS, and who were unable to walk in the 5, 10 and 20 plus years post their injuries, are now beginning to stand and walk again for the first time. The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments.
