GaitSmart supports NELFT employee “Health and Wellbeing” days
GaitSmart were invited to attend two health and wellbeing days that had been organised for NELFT employees. We had two GaitSmart therapists available in the open area at the NELFT Head Office at the CEME Conference Centre.
Employees were encouraged to visit the GaitSmart stand and to have their gait tested. As a result they would also receive a personalised exercise plan to address any issues or to fine tune any movement anomalies identified during the GaitSmart test.
Almost 70 employees were tested and given exercise plans over the two days. The feedback was excellent and we are now in discussion to understand if this is an approach that could be extended to help staff with lower limb musculoskeletal problems or even for all staff as part of the annual health checks.
