Pediatric Gait Trainer

This Miniwalk Gait Trainer is a perfect tool for teaching motor skills and balance. The seat and trunk support is easily adjusted to fit the child. The Miniwalk's seat slightly suspends the legs for free movement. Trunk is supported with comfortable padded bar that provides a secure feeling for the child. Seat height, handlebars and trunk support are all height adjustable.

What's different about the Miniwalk is it's suspension system. It moves up and down during gait, allowing for a more normal heel strike, toe off and mid phase as the child moves forward. The spring assist system aids the child's “swing through” during gait.

Human gait is measured from heel strike to heel strike, also known as the gait cycle or "one stride." The gait cycle has two phases, the stance (about 60% of the cycle) and the swing (about 40%).

The Miniwalk Gait Trainer is available in 2 sizes and is designed for children 1.5 - 10 years of age.

Miniwalk I (1.5 - 3 years of age)
Miniwalk II (3 - 10 years of age)
