Vizziq Neuromuscular Trainer is superior to regular walking practice as a means of improving walking patterns in older adults; eliciting improvements that persist even when walking without the device. We suggest that preventative gait training with the Vizziq NT could reduce fall risk and the need for conventional mobility devices in older adults.
This study compared changes in gait patterns and walking speed over 3 weeks of training with a novel gait training device (Vizziq Neuromuscular Trainer) to changes observed in women 55 and older, walking an equivalent amount without the device.
Vizziq promotes more optimal walking patterns (speed, pelvic rotation, and gait
symmetry) compared to conventional walkers; important gait measures could prevent falls and enhance the
independence and mobility.
