PITTSBURGH, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — “I’m a physical therapist, and I thought we could solve a longstanding problem in the rehab world by having objective feedback to improve adherence to post-surgical weight-bearing restrictions and enhance weight-bearing tendencies in the non-surgical individual,” said one of two inventors from Mena, Ark. “So we invented the patent pending GAITKEEPER.”
