ZeroG promotes balance training involving the legs, arms and trunk. After a fall, ZeroG can be reset by simply bouncing in the harness
(Download large version .mp4 3.8MB)
With ZeroG, subjects can practice getting off the floor with body-weight support and full safety.
(Download large version.mp4 4.8MB)




Practicing sit to stand activities under dynamic body-weight support is possible with ZeroG
(Download large version .mp4 1.9MB)
Because ZeroG is mounted overhead, practicing obstacles such as steps is possible. Here the subject is provided 30 lbs of body-weight support and if they fall, ZeroG automatically switches to a holding mode
