The Therastride is a manual body weight supported treadmill training system that allows individuals with paralysis to walk with body weight support while preserving normal kinematics of a gait cycle.


GIGER MD® System

The Giger MD is a supine upper and lower extremity cycle that allows an individual to pedal with both simultaneously. It improves inter limb coordination and cardiovascular endurance without physiologically stressing the individual’s body.


RT300 FES Cycle

The RT 300 FES Cycle is an upper and lower extremity cycle that utilizes electrical stimulation to contract paralyzed muscles to promote neuromuscular recovery and to improve cardiovascular endurance and muscle girth.



The ReWalk is a robotic exoskeleton that uses motorized legs to power hip and knee movement.  It allows for locomotion on land with the use of crutches at speeds up to 1.3 mph.


Lokomat® System

The Lokomat is a robotic assisted body weight supported treadmill training system that allows individuals with various neurological disabilities to walk with preprogrammed physiological gait parameters. 


Galileo WBV System

The Galileo Advanced WBV system utilizes laterally displaced WBV at high and low frequencies to promote neuroplasticity within the central nervous system. It is a valuable adjunct to other therapies to help minimize spasticity, improve muscle strength, maintain bone density and improve balance.

Redefining Recovery

NextSteps of O’Connor Foundation is the first non-profit exercise facility devoted to the rehabilitation and overall wellness of Chicago-land people living with paralysis. We offer our spinal cord injury and neurological disorders community a post-hospital exercise/rehab facility that will aid them in taking their next step towards a more functional, independent, and healthy lifestyle.

We practice standardized protocols in activity based locomotion therapies to help clients regain function and sensation even after years of paralysis or disuse. Our aggressive exercise sessions incorporate the latest treatment advances and technologies to focus on neuromuscular recovery instead of compensatory strategies in order to maximize the potential for functional recovery and achieve an optimum quality of life.
