Robotic Assisted Locomotor Training Definition
Locomotor training is a form of walking therapy. It typically involves patients taking frequent steps at high speeds while their body weight is supported. There are many different ways to do locomotor training. The Lokomat® is one tool that Gillette therapists use to help some patients participate in locomotor training. At Gillette, locomotor training with the Lokomat is called robotic assisted locomotor training (RobALT).
