Gait Robotics Program
Neurological impairments may interfere with standing, walking, or transfer ability, and may simultaneously hinder other functional activities. Patients may have problems with balance and are therefore at increased risk for falling and dizziness; other issues that may hinder walking include chronic pain syndromes, impairing the metabolic and cardiovascular demands of exercise.
Our Physiotherapists, Kinesiologists, and Occupational Therapists work closely with our clients by providing strengthening, neuromuscular re-education, balance training, and strategies to improve gait and balance.
A therapist’s (OT or SLP) referral is preferred, however patients may sign up independently by filling out our referral form; patients are accepted on a case-by-case basis at any point in the continuum of care.
This is a fee-for-service program.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ATC has had to limit the number of referrals we can see. Consequently, we can only accommodate our internally referred patients and will not be accepting any community referrals for our Seating and AAC clinics at this time.
We will continue to see our existing ALS, stroke, MS and PD patients and internal referrals for these diagnoses in Seating and AAC clinic.
Thank you for your understanding.
