Video Update: Working with the LifeGlider

The LifeGlider
The latest addition to my PT line-up: the LifeGlider.  I was excited to try out this new type of walker, and hope that it will help in the retraining process as my brain and body continue to reconnect.  The LifeGlider is designed to realign the center of your balance as you walk.  The first half of this video was taken in July, going slightly downhill on a smooth surface; the second half in August, on a carpeted, level surface.  Here, as you can see in the video, I'm focusing on walking backward. 

Forward videos to come soon.  For now, I think it's encouraging to see the improvement over time.  In the spirit of Psalm 126:3: "The LORD has done great things for us, and we are glad."  As always, thank you to everyone who has rendered support and been a part of the larger path forward!


  1. Hi Cara, I have Cerebral Palsy and recently purchased a LifeGlider. I've only had it for a few days but I'm starting to get the hang of using it. I'm hoping to take it outside for the first time in a few days. I love using a mobility device like LifeGlider that helps me get stronger rather than weaker. I look forward to seeing more videos from you using LifeGlider! Good Luck!

  2. Thanks for your comment and good wishes! All the best to you for the new opportunity. I hope that you see great gains quickly with it and keep getting stronger and stronger. Cheering for you!
