LYRA gait trainer from Thera-Trainer

For successful rehabilitation of walking ability, therapy intensity and high repetition - according to numerous findings of research in the field of motor learning - are crucial factors.

Functions and advantages

Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the LYRA gait trainer from Thera-Trainer need to know.


With the end effector gait trainer, intensive training at the performance limit succeeds in every phase of rehabilitation. THERA-Trainer lyra thus creates the best conditions to enable affected persons to return to a self-determined everyday life and the best chances of regaining the ability to walk.


Important therapy goals


  • Regaining the ability to walk
  • Increasing the walking speed
  • Improve endurance
  • Improving the gait pattern

The extremely simple operation and fast transfer map the operation economically even under everyday conditions. Without the cumbersome donning of an exoskeleton, preparation times are minimal. This enables a higher therapy density at comparatively low acquisition and operating costs. THERA-Trainer lyra generates the human gait pattern through a patented mechanism that can be adapted to each patient within seconds. The training feels like natural walking - a crucial factor in regaining independence step by step.nOnly a natural walking movement is able to recall the patient's muscle memory, giving him a high chance of rehabilitation of walking ability. The gait pattern below illustrates how THERA-Trainer lyra achieves just that. With THERA-Trainer lyra, patients achieve up to 20 times more repetitions than with treadmill or manual gait training. Current research shows that this is crucial for successful rehabilitation of walking ability. At 4 km/h at 100 steps per minute, THERA-Trainer lyra is one of the fastest end-effector gait trainers on the market. Few other gait trainers of this type come close to achieving this speed. With THERA-Trainer lyra, the patient can find his way back to a self-determined everyday life in which every pedestrian traffic light can be crossed effortlessly.


In three simple steps, the step length, height of the handrails and weight relief can be adjusted to the patient's needs. The direct and level access allows a very easy and short transfer even with the most severely affected patients. This allows maximum use of expensive therapy time for active training and reduces transfer time to a minimum. Once the gait trainer lyra is adjusted to the patient, all important training parameters are displayed on the touch screen and can be easily adjusted with the finger. This makes operation extremely user-friendly. This allows maximum use of therapy time for active training. By the way, the THERA-Trainer lyra gait trainer can also be used with young patients from the age of 5 because it is suitable for patients with a height of 100-195 cm and up to a body weight of 150 kg. With the Thera-Trainer lyra, our clinic has a robotics-assisted gait training system for the best possible therapy for our patients. This end-effector gait trainer (only the patient's feet are guided by pedals) enables intensive gait training at the performance limit in all phases of rehabilitation.

Who benefits from gait therapy with the Lyra?

Patients of any age with a height of 100-195cm and a weight of up to 150kg can be treated. Limited walking ability can be caused by cerebral, spinal or neurogenic diseases.


The main indications include, for example:


  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Paraplegia/ Paraplegia
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Disturbance of the gait pattern after orthopedic surgery

The direct ground-level access means that even the most severely affected can benefit effortlessly from the Lyra gait trainer. The continuously adjustable weight support helps patients who cannot (yet) fully support their own body weight. The harness system has four lifting straps that attach to a bracket to provide security during each gait phase. Mobile patients can also walk hands-free without weight support to train their balance.

The Lyra enables a physiological walking pattern that is designed to address the patient's muscle memory. The repetitions, which are 10 to 20 times higher than with conventional gait training or treadmill training, achieve a significantly more intensive effect. Within one therapy session, an average of 2,000 - 3,000 steps can be achieved, depending on the speed and step length.

With the end effector gait trainer, intensive training at the performance limit succeeds in every phase of rehabilitation. THERA-Trainer lyra thus creates the best conditions to enable affected persons to return to a self-determined everyday life and the best chances of regaining the ability to walk.
