Unparalleled Healing Innovation
From award-winning technology systems to novel therapy solutions, St. Luke’s is on the leading-edge of rehabilitation care. Each day, our innovations enhance our patients’ recoveries in astounding ways, including an adaptive garden, terrain park, wheelchair accessible playground, driving simulator and the ZeroG® Gait and Balance System to name a few.
ZeroG® Gait and Balance System
The ZeroG® Gait and Balance System is a robotic body-weight support therapy equipment designed to help people relearn to walk and gain balance. The ZeroG is being used to aid patients with conditions such as spinal cord and brain injuries, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and even lower-extremity amputations. It is the only device of its kind in the Inland Northwest and serves 1,000 pediatric and adult patients each year.
The ZeroG offers patients a reduced gravity-like environment, allowing them to engage in innovative physical therapies so they can practice a wide range of activities without the fear or risk of falling. Patients wear a harness that connects to the ZeroG robot as it tracks their movements from above.
