ZeroGThe ZeroG is the world’s most advanced body-weight support system for walking and balance retraining. Its overhead track and harness system gives you the confidence to move across the room without the fear of falling. With an adjustable track and dynamic body weight support, ZeroG can be used in conjunction with treadmills, stairs and other equipment. Therapists adjust the ZeroG using a wireless control system while always staying by your side.

Lokomat® Pro – With Virtual Environments

The Lokomat Pro is an advanced robotic walking retrainer. By moving your legs through the motions of walking on a treadmill, it retrains the brain faster by relieving physical strain. This equipment does not require you to be able to walk or even stand on your own to work. Previously only available in veterans’ hospitals, Sheltering Arms was the first to bring the Lokomat Pro to civilian patients in Virginia.


The V.I.E.W (Video Information to Enhance Walking) is a staging and review area that allows the therapist and patient to review video and data taken moments ago and from previous therapy sessions. This process connects you to a wealth of real-time, personal information that can help you understand your goals and enhance recovery.

NESS – L300™

This neuroprosthesis lifts the foot with mild electrical stimulation. Through ongoing therapy, the NESS L300 can help individuals experiencing foot-drop walk more safely and easily with increased speed, up and down stairs, and on uneven surfaces. This lightweight device is wireless, can fit under clothing and can be taken on and off with one hand. Sheltering Arms was the first to offer this technology in Virginia.

SMART Balance Master®

The SMART Balance Master comprises unique, interactive technology for the diagnosis and treatment of balance disorders. The therapist can control the surface where you stand, as well as your visual environment. This adaptability is helpful in assessing the sensory and motor components of your balance control and addressing the appropriate areas through therapy.


The GAITRite uses “footprints you can see” with a special mat and video system that assesses walking data in real time. Our expert therapists use this data to pinpoint areas of concern, such as poor gait, pain and fall risk. The therapists can then tailor treatment specifically to address your unique issues and recovery goals.

RT300 FES Cycle

This “smart” cycle can stimulate nerves and up to ten muscle groups in any combination of the legs, arms and torso. The RT300 allows you to exercise and strengthen these muscle groups safely, even from a wheelchair.

Split-Belt Treadmill

Split-Belt Treadmills are the latest in innovative treadmill technology to help rehab patients “re-wire” their brains to tell their legs to move. The Split-Belt Treadmill may be particularly helpful if you have an uneven walking pattern, because it will require you to respond to variable speed controls for each leg.
