At Propel Physiotherapy we incorporate cutting edge technology to meet the needs of our neurological clientele. We use body weight support treadmill training (BWSTT) protocols that are evidence based and tailored for each client, maximizing their rehabilitation, helping them to achieve their goals.  

Body weight support treadmill training gives the potential for appropriate posture, reduces weight bearing, eliminates concerns for balance, and facilitates the training of coordinated lower extremity movement.

We know the reciprocal nature of walking is important. Using skilled facilitation coupled with varying the speed and amount of support, we are able to tap into the Central Pattern Generator (CPG) and recreate reciprocal walking.  


The LiteGait® Body weight support system is a gait training device that allows us to control weight bearing, posture, and balance over a treadmill or over ground. It creates an ideal environment for treating clients with a range of impairments and functional levels – evidence suggests that body weight support treadmill training can be an effective way to improve the quality of walking after brain and spinal cord injury.  

The LiteGait® allows us to adjust the amount of support required for walking – overground or on the treadmill.  It is also a great way to tap into the automatic systems of walking that are compromised in some neurological and orthopedic conditions. The harness we use is designed to allow unilateral or bilateral support for the progression of the weight bearing load from non to full weight bearing.


We also use the LiteGait in conjunction with other advanced technology devices such as the Keeogo robotic assisted walking device, Bioness and Odstock foot drop stimulators and most types of AFO’s and foot ups.  

Our experienced clinicians have experience working with a variety of conditions including: spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, post-surgical (total knee and hip replacements) and a range of complex orthopedic injuries.

Let Us Bring Our Services To You

We recognize that not everyone is readily able to access one of our two physiotherapy clinics in Etobicoke and Pickering. For that reason, all of our services are mobile. Enjoy the benefits of our professional services in the comfort of your home, office or any suitable setting in your community.

After a full assessment of your needs and surroundings, one of our registered professionals will develop a program with your specific goals in mind to help you get to where you want in your physical health and wellness.

“Came to Propel after dealing with a mid back issue for months. From the facilities to treatment, the whole experience was top notch. Hoong’s assessment was thorough and the treatment got me feeling better quickly. He also gave me some exercises to work on which have continued to help. Would definitely recommend!”
