Questions and Answers Sling for gait training?

I work at a rehab center and I need a sling that can be used to support gait training. Which sling should I choose?

"Liko has developed two models of slings for gait/standing training: Liko MasterVest and Liko Lift Pants. They are based on totally different principles; MasterVest lifts around the upper body and Lift Pants lift under the body. The choice depends on the patient’s functions and need for support.

The MasterVest provides good support around the upper body and can be used with or without Leg Harness, depending on how well the patient can stand on his/her own. 

Lift Pants are more suitable for patients who are better able to manage pressure at the crotch than around the upper body. For patients who experience difficulty achieving a secure fit around the upper body when using the MasterVest, i.e., if the sling tends to slide up under the arms, Lift Pants are also the best choice.  This is a very common problem in gait training for extremely obese patients."
