Hippotherapy

The Wingman Harness is ideally suited for Hippotherapy.  The Wingman Harness encourages correct posture and head control on the horse during therapy.  The Wingman Harness also allows variable holding/support options for the therapist during therapy.  

Gait Training

The Wingman Harness is excellent for gait training.  It encourages a more natural upright posture, extension of the hip flexors, and engagement of the core muscles.   The Wingman Harness also allows a more natural use of the upper extremities and head control also required for a more natural gait experience.  While gait training the Wingman Harness helps prevent falls and injury.  When combined with a treadmill at the home, the Wingman Harness can provide a valuable home therapy experience  to greatly augment the traditional therapy received in the office.  Parents can also encourage gait training activities in normal daily activities.
