What is Body Weight Supported Treadmill Training (BWSTT)?

  1. BWSTT uses a harness system to support a percentage of the patient’s body weight while ambulating on the treadmill or over the ground.
  2. The harness system controls the amount of weight bearing, provides proper posture and eliminates concerns about balance.
  3. The physical therapist facilitates the training of coordinated lower extremity movement, as well as proper trunk /pelvic position.
  4. The optimal environment for learning and/or refining the ambulation skills of patients with a wide range of impairments and functional abilities.
