How to Don the NewGait

In this video Kim Spranger, PT, our lead clinician, will narrate the donning procedure for the standard configuration.

Movement Pattern Restoration: Energy, Flow and Symmetry of Gait

PESI – NEWGAIT Continuing Education Course

With this simple and effective method, you will have the ability to treat your patients in ways you couldn’t before – strategies for all of the common issues that you treat with gait impairment including: TBI, stroke, MS, Parkinson’s and chronic pain. You’ll learn strategies to quickly pinpoint asymmetries, correct gait compensations, and combine proprioception & neuroplasticity for improved outcomes. All while incorporating a new therapeutic tool that effectively works to “remap the brain” – The NewGait.

Imagine the gratification you’ll feel after you have restored mobility and independence!

Billing Tips & Tricks

During treatment sessions, physical therapists bill timed treatment codes, known as CPT codes, to denote services rendered to healthcare payers. The most commonly billed codes used by physical therapists using the NewGait are neuromuscular re-education, therapeutic activities, and gait training. Below is a description of each code, and an example of using the NewGait with that treatment code.

Neuromuscular Re-education: 97112

  • Activities that facilitate re-education
    of movement, balance, coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture, or proprioception

  • Example: using the NewGait device to facilitate muscle contraction at specific joints during standing dynamic balance activities

Therapeutic Activities: 97530

  • Dynamic activities that improve functional performance, such as bed mobility, transfer training, stair negotiation, car transfers, sit-to-stand training, and activity mechanics training (such as squatting mechanics)

  • Example: using the NewGait during stair training to facilitate hip flexion for foot clearance during the ascension of the step

Gait Training: 97116

  • Activities that address specific gait impairments, performing training with an assistive device, practicing turns, working with modified weight-bearing status during gait

  • Note: this code must be used to improve the biomechanics of gait. Using this code for engaging a patient in a walking program to improve cardiovascular endurance is not considered gait training

  • Example: using the NewGait with a patient with foot drop, training them on the use of a single-point cane using a step-through gait pattern

Frequently Asked Questions

The NewGait has been used on individuals with MS, ataxia, connective tissue disorder, post-surgical joint replacement, spinal cord injury, back/hip/knee/ankle pain, varying gait abnormalities, post-stroke, prosthetics, upper extremity impairments, and Parkinson’s.

  • The clinician must use proper judgement to provide a safe environment for the patient.
  • The patient must have the ability to stand and initiate gait on their own to have success with the NewGait.
  • When first equipping the NewGait, provide extra support as the patient will not expect the assistance and compression sensation with the first few steps.
  • If the patient feels any discomfort, please discontinue using the device and reassess the placement of components.
  • Do not use the NewGait with healing or unstable fracture sites, do not place the bands over healing incisions, Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clots), or leg edema.

Patient comfort will typically be improved with the patient wearing a balanced unit, however one side may benefit from a stronger band.

As bands are applied, listen to your patient for feedback. Ultimately they will tell you what feels most comfortable, most supportive, and aids mobility the best. Therapists are strongly encouraged to put on the device, in varying combinations of band arrangements, to become familiar with the usefulness of the device. To increase knee extension at heel strike, add a dorsiflexion band. To decrease knee extension at mid stance, add a hip flexion assistance band. To increase base of support with ambulation, add hip abduction bands.

Some patients use the NewGait during several sessions of physical therapy and then the device is no longer needed. Some patients obtain a unit for home use and perform their home exercise program (HEP) while wearing the device. Others have made the NewGait an essential aid to ambulation and wear the unit most days during activities of daily living.

This depends on each individual patient’s gait abnormality. You can see the suggested configurations for common gait abnormalities here.

Do you believe the patient could benefit from having the NewGait for home use? Then fill out and provide the patient with a patient purchase form. These are found in your NewGait clinician manual or downloaded from the clinician portal.
