Ryan was put into a harness for safety and so that he didn't have to bear his full body weight.  Electrodes were placed on his legs and attached to the walker.

Ryan was put into a harness for safety and so that he didn't have to bear his full body weight.  Electrodes were placed on his legs and attached to the walker.   When he pushed the button on the right side of the walker, electrodes on his right leg would stimulate the muscles to step. When he pushed the button on the left side of the walker, the electrodes on his left leg would stimulate those muscles to step. It was amazing to see him walk!! There was a point when Ryan teared up, which of course made his mom and I have to turn away and hide our tears. The ParaStep is awesome!
