    I know it's not cheap but there are body weight supported/"lite gaits" with treadmills available to be leased for about $200 - $300 a month. After a couple of years you own it.

    It's certainly an expense, but it's probably the most realistic and safe way to get moving.

    ​​​​​For people who are motor complete I would imagine a couple of therapists would need to help which would obviously make the sessions much more expensive. I don't know. But for incomplete injuries with the ability to move a bit, it is extremely useful...

    That device helped me get from off weighting significantly to just using the harness for safety to not using the harness at all to getting off of a platform walker and being able to use a regular walker to get around short distances.

    30-45 minutes is the most I've ever done per day and I got those results. If I can just get my old butt to do 6 hours a day 6 days a week, I truly think it would change my life. Amazing that knowing that and I still can't bring myself to do it... Maybe if I was in my 20s . I just need something to give me the energy and motivation. That's another story. The point is that this thing is very useful and I suggest anyone wanting to get moving look into it.

    With a doctor's blessing of course.

            I fully support people getting moving and some of the systems out there are good for that. The only csveat I would echo is to get a physician’s clearance before starting. If you haven’t used those bones in awhile for standing, it could be a problem.

                Hal is already many years in use of Japanese health professionals.
                I can see they have European model now!
                I guess this Euro model might be capable to move large patients.
                Does anyone knows what would be limitations for this device Injury level wise along with limits for height & weight of patient?
                And also what could be price for full lower body support system?

                  I think it's a clinic only device, not for home use yet. From the last time I asked them they only lease it and don't sell it. Struggling to find the emails now, but think it was thousands a month.
