Tara Porter, MPT
PWR Certified Therapist
Here at WESTARM we utilize state of the art GlideTrak equipment in our therapy.
The GlideTrak can provide sustained 100% body weight support. This puts the user in complete control of the training, allowing for immediate and continuous stride adjustments to eliminate pain and increase ease of treadmill use. This control gives users the confidence necessary to challenge themselves with more aggressive workouts without fear of hurting themselves or of falling.
