ZERO G

The ZeroG® Gait and Balance System is mounted to an overhead track and protects patients from falls while providing dynamic body-weight support as patients practice walking, balance tasks, sit-to-stand maneuvers and even stairs. The Zero-G is essential in our lab since it guarantees safety for our test-pilots when testing and evaluating the wearable robots we and our partners develop(ed).  

In the movie below, made for the opening of the lab, the inventor of the zero-G and the founder and CEO of Aretechllc Joe Hidler explains how the device works, its history and what it is used for.
