What is Body Weight Support?
Body Weight Support (BWS) is any method of suspending partial or all of your body weight while standing or in motion. This technique can be especially helpful for patients who are recovering from injuries or surgeries, as it can significantly reduce the load and impact on their joints and muscles during rehabilitation exercises. LEVER utilizes a patented 10 lbs frame with a suspension system allowing patients to effectively take up to 45 Ibs off.

When Can BWS Be Used?
BWS can be incorporated during any phase of a patient's recovery regimen to minimize the risk of injuries, aid in recovery, maintain overall health, and improve mobility. Historically, due to the high expenses associated with BWS technology, clinicians used BWS sparingly, primarily for severe pain or injures.
What Our Medical Professionals Are Saying
Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO
"The Lever’s off-loading system allows our patients to practice walking earlier without stressing the repair or overloading their muscles. It is proving to be a valuable tool in the overall recovery following hip arthroscopy."
Evolution Physical Therapy & Fitness
Dr. Michael Herrera
"Body weight support can be used in a variety of ways that many different people can benefit from the injured person to the non-injured. We can adjust the parameters that make sense for the patient we are treating. LEVER system is very easy to set up and easy to use with our patients."
"Most of my patients have treadmills, so with the setup only taking a couple of minutes, I can provide this technology when I travel."
Doctors of Running
Dr. Nathan Brown
"A runner can continue to run as long as they follow the pain monitoring model. However, it may not be possible to run within these parameters overground, and an option like the LEVER system is a great option to continue running with decreased loading that keeps you within the rules of the pain monitoring model."
BWS has been studied extensively, showing the benefits of this technology.
