First in Nation with SafeGait
Monroe Community Hospital is proud to be the first healthcare facility in the nation to have the innovative SafeGait system installed. The benefits of SafeGait's dynamic body weight support system have been immediately apparent in our clinic. Patients and residents, who struggle to walk or are fearful of falling, have improved confidence and begin to see improvements almost instantly. SafeGait allows a new degree of freedom between the therapist and the patient, opening up a larger range of possible activities in a therapy session. We can now push the boundaries in a safe and secure environment, helping our patients achieve their full potential as quickly as possible.
