Locomotor Training is a body-weight supported treadmill program aimed to stimulate the nervous system. It is an intensive program developed in the USA that promotes recovery focusing on posture, standing and walking patterns. This form of training is supported by three highly trained therapists who, with manual guidance, facilitate stepping and standing tasks to retrain the nervous system.
Research conducted in Locomotor Training has shown improvements in walking function, general mobility, trunk control and general health benefits. NeuroMoves is the only facility in Australia to deliver Locomotor Training and is affiliated with the NeuroRecovery Network, Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation in the USA.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“The LT program improved by gait training quite quickly, allowing me to do longer periods on the treadmill and becoming faster and stronger, which allowed my over ground walking with aids to expel and crush the speed walk tests.
It also helped me to share my first dance with my amazing wife!”
