Attempt more advanced tasks.

  • Patients are able to challenge themselves with more advanced therapy sessions. When a patient knows that they will not fall, they can focus on their technique without second-guessing themselves or being worried about injuring themselves.

Faster results!

  • When you attempt more advanced tasks and are not afraid of falling with the help of Solo-Step, you should expect faster results! Many different therapists and patients have noticed faster results with the help of our overhead safety track and harness!

Many patients, like Bret Merkle, wish they had Solo-Step earlier on in their therapy!

SOLO-STEP® needs to be in every rehab center in America! I was paralyzed from the waist down when I was 21 years old. Doctors told me I would never walk again. After 6 months in the hospital, over 20 surgeries and many months of physical therapy, I took my first steps! The scariest thing in life was taking those first steps. For able-bodied people, falling is not a big deal or something to fear. But for someone who has been injured or has some medical condition that leaves them unable to walk, it is one of the scariest things they ever face. I wish I would have had the SOLO-STEP® earlier on in my therapy.
