These Boots Are Made For walking

I wonder if any of you have heard of this interesting new concept called a Lokomat. it is a robotic piece of technology that allows people who currently have the inability to walk independently a chance to get back up on their feet.

It is ideal for people with awkward gait and spinal cord injuries at least from what I gather. I was interested in trying it or at least knowing more about it from a first-hand experience and wondered if any of my readers or their children have tried it? There are several videos on YouTube and it looks to be something promising I already walk with a Kaye Walker, but truth be told my balance is atrocious! There was one claim, where the young girl with cerebral palsy began to walk unaided for the first time in her life after a few sessions with the Lokomat. Although the girl in the second clip was not the first clip I found so I can’t comment as to disability it does show walking after the lokomat
And now that it is springtime, I’m getting out and being more active or at least trying to! I feel I have put on a fair amount of weight over the winter and as is the plight with most chair users now begins the battle of burning all of that off!

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
