Nazareth College, the University of Rochester Medical Center, Monroe Community Hospital and Ohio State University plan to join forces in a research project to test Gorbel Medical’s SafeGait physical therapy device, officials of the organizations said Thursday.
A division of the Victor-based industrial crane and lifting device maker Gorbel Inc., Gorbel Medical’s newly developed SafeGait device applies technology developed for industrial material handling to the suspension harnesses used by physical therapists to help patients who have lost the ability to walk.
