Aleh Foundation is seeking donors to sponsor Specialized Walkers for disabled children in the Aleh Bnei Brak Facility. This Specialized Gait Trainer empowers disabled clients to improve their mobility and has pelvic support for a more natural gait. The walker is durable, adjustable, portable, and prompts mount anywhere; no tools required. Accessories are important to help consumers in differerent ways. The Thigh Prompts swing freely with the user’s stride, and prevent leg scissoring while encouraging weight-bearing. Thigh Prompts are height adjustable in the medial and lateral positions. The inside strap maintains leg separation. The outer curve limits leg abduction. Thigh Prompts can prevent the child from turning within the Pacer frame. Large and small Thigh Prompts are available. This type of prompt makes a gait trainer different from a pediatric walker, because they help develop better walking skills. Ankle Prompts snap securely onto the frame and have comfortably padded ankle straps. The spring adjusters limit stride length and control stride placement. Strap length adjusts to determine foot separation and prevent scissoring, which is a problem with other pediatric walkers. The new, padded Chest Prompt holds the torso at the desired angle. It is available in three sizes, and accommodates a wide range of users. Tilt adjusts forward or backward in 15° increments. One knob adjusts both tilt angle and width. Adjustments can be made while user is in the walker. Chest Prompt stays open for easy transfers. Fit the Chest Prompt snugly to support dependent users, or wrap loosely as a training guide for gaining independent trunk control. Cleanable padding is anti-microbial and repels UV light to stay cool. Fits all earlier models of the Pacer Gait Trainer. Versatile Arm Prompts include height, rotation, angle, lateral proximity, and forward/backward adjustments, to accommodate numerous positioning requirements. Arm Prompts placed at elbow height below the shoulders assist weight-bearing. Arm Prompts are placed at the front of the frame for a forward-leaning posture. Arm Prompts angled upward encourage active upper trunk and head control. Individualized positioning accommodates contractures. Hand Loops boost a child’s sense of stability and confidence while moving. They can be attached as a pair or singly on the top bar of any size Pacer.
