New Gait Trainer!

We’ve had a loaner gait trainer for Ben for several months, but last week we finally got him one of his very own!   Our awesome physical therapist got the process started several months ago, and Ben’s pediatrician wrote a letter of medical necessity for it.  Both our private insurance and Medicaid approved it, so it shouldn’t cost us anything out of pocket.  For that we are very grateful.

It is quite a bit larger than the loaner, but so far Ben seems to like it.  He has finally managed to take a couple tentative steps FORWARD instead of backward like he usually does!
