June 22, 2012
The PreStride™ allows practitioners to make an informed decision regarding the suitability of Becker Stance Control Technology prior to manufacturing a definitive orthosis. Intended as an assessment tool for the FullStride™ and SafetyStride™ Stance Control Systems, the PreStride now also comes equipped with the GX-Assist. The GX-Assist accommodates individuals with significant weakness of hip musculature by use of a pneumatic spring to assist in knee extension during the swing phase of gait.
