Upcoming Webinars | Summer 2017
July 13, 2017 – 9AM PDT | Bente Storm, PT to Present Walking with the R82 Crocodile & Mustang Gait Trainers Webinar
Walking is typically encouraged for special needs children as soon as their legs are ready to bear weight. To help in the walking processes, gait trainers encourage new walkers to put their weight on one leg, lean forward and swing the other leg forward in front of the body. R82 offers a variety of products including the Crocodile and Mustang gait trainers to help children living with special needs improve their walking skills.
To learn more about the R82 Crocodile and Mustang gait trainers, please join us on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 9AM PDT for an hour-long interactive webinar to be presented by physical therapist, Bente Storm.
