Depending on the size of the child, LiteGait diaper harness http://www.litegait.com/pdfs/prod_sheet_harnesses.pdf might be useful, as it simplifies the harness application process and may be more forgiving as it relates to asymmetries. Using some foam between the harness and the prosthetic can also help give the harness straps something to grab in lieu of soft tissue.

You don’t mention if you are looking for ideas for gait training or for standing balance so I will address standing balance. First of all harness application maybe a bit of a challenge, putting it on so as not to interfere with swing or stance phase of the prosthesis may require some repositioning from the norm. Depending on the prosthesis and size of the child you may want to forgo attaching the groin piece on the prosthetic side or not attach it as tight as would normally be done so as not to alter prosthetic alignment. Certainly if this is a new prosthesis for the patient then I would be really focusing in on taking weight off of them so as to improve their ability to tolerate the prosthesis in a standing position. Continuing with this assumption I would utilize the LiteGait as a safe environment to work in for weight bearing activities, weight shifting, progressing to reaching out of BOS and to pre-gait activities. With the reaching activities I would use whatever would be a favorite toy or activity to facilitate improved weight bearing and encourage use of prosthetic side. I would also really focus in on posture to be able to set them up for the best gait pattern possible facilitating this by doing activities that would encourage them to reach up above them for instance with a small ball or some other toy that is of interest to them, and of course doing this in a fun way to keep the child interested. Hope some of this helps you; I would be interested in hearing how it goes with your kido.

Clinical Support Question from a Peds therapist: Can you provide some suggestions and facilitation ideas for using the LiteGait with a disarticulating hip prosthesis for a 3 year old?
