The Pony

Lately I’ve been obsessed with gait trainers. Some women obsess over shoes, purses, clothes. I obsess over gait trainers. Go figure 🙂

So I managed to get a hold of a Pony gait trainer to see if it would work for him.

My dream is to find the right device so Nathan can gain some freedom of mobility. Also, so he doesn’t always have to be sitting in a stroller or in our arms. I want him to have a device that he can stand in and look other kids at eye level, and maybe one day, so he can move a little.

Unfortunately, the Pony didn’t really work for him. His legs are too stiff for him to really be able to take steps in it. It looks like I’m on the right track going after the Kidwalk and the Hart Walker.

We’re still working on getting approval for both of those, I really hope we can get them soon!

In the meantime, here are pictures of our latest failed experiment
