How is the VECTOR Training Institute

Being able to walk again is often a prioritized goal in the rehabilitation process. The Vector system is ideal for gait therapy. With an electronically controlled belt and restraint system, you can practice individually at the performance limit. This brings faster and more lasting therapeutic success. This avoids falls and trains effectively despite fears, insecurities and restricted mobility.

The Vector is a new, innovative therapy system for gait and balance training. Only ten therapy facilities across Europe are working with the Vector. The Schmieder Allensbach Clinic is one of those facilities in which the gait and balance trainer is used.

The Vector is suitable for therapy after:

  • stroke
  • traumatic brain injury
  • Incomplete spinal cord injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • amputation
  • Orthopedic injuries

"Our goals are to quickly reduce the functional impairments and to move the patients upright at the earliest possible point in time through very everyday, independent activities and requirements - and this in a secure environment"

The Vector allows active therapy at a very early stage. The patient's body weight can be flexibly relieved by a belt system.

While the patient is securely held in a comfortable belt, the custom-made relief system moves computer-controlled in a rail system attached to the ceiling. In this way, a variety of everyday exercises can be carried out: gait training, climbing stairs, side steps, posture and stability exercises, getting up from the floor and climbing over obstacles. The information of each therapy unit is collected in a database and gives the therapist detailed information. In this way, the further rehabilitation process can be planned individually.

The aim is to rehabilitate leg and trunk functions. Existing functional impairments when walking and standing should be reduced as quickly as possible. The Vector supports patients in walking faster and further.

The overriding goal is that the patient becomes more mobile and independent, has confidence in the gait movement and, last but not least, receives a motivational boost from the gait aid system. In this way, the Vector system contributes to the patient being able to pursue everyday tasks after discharge to the best of his ability.
