Using Spacesuit Technology to Help Patients Walk Again

How It Works


Air pressure suit

Just as the pressure of water in a swimming pool pushes a swimmer’s body up & out of the water, the air pressure inside the Lite Run suit lifts a patient off THE GROUND!

Dynamic Unweighting

50% body weight reduction

The system can cut a patient’s effective body weight by half, so a 180-pound person can feel like they weigh only 90 pounds. This makes walking and balancing easier as the weight to support is reduced.

Natural Gait Training

Unique "unweighting" effect

The unique “unweighting” effect produced by the Lite Run system allows patients to use their own natural gait. Because the system is unconditionally stable

When Does It Get Used

Studies have shown that physical activity can lead to improved mood and reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Physical Therapy

The Lite Run MarsWalk is used in physical therapy clinics to improve gait training and rehabilitative exercises, providing a natural and effective experience that can improve mobility, balance, and overall quality of life. The device is praised by patients and therapists alike for its safety and ease of use.

Nursing Homes

The MarsWalk is a Class 1 medical device that can assist nursing home staff in helping residents stand up and walk, improving their mobility and quality of life while reducing the risk of falls and related injuries. The device is easy to use and has safety features that make it ideal for nursing home environments.

Veterans Care

The Lite Run MarsWalk offers a novel antigravity therapy system that can assist veterans in both VA hospitals and state-run veteran homes.
