Cameron Tweedy in Zero G harness talks to caregiver

Zero G

Innovative Equipment Eliminates Fear of Falling, Speeds Rehab

Whenever Cameron Tweedy wants to remind himself how far he’s come, all he has to do is glance down at his arm. A tattoo displays the date his life changed forever: July 23, 2019.

That’s when Cameron, then 20 years old, rolled his truck five times on his way to work. He was flown to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center with a broken back, four broken ribs, a cracked sternum, a crushed ankle, a severe concussion and complete loss of function in his legs. 

With doctors skeptical he’d ever walk again, Cameron was in a dark place. “They thought I might be able to twitch my toes someday,” he says. But now, thanks to an innovative piece of equipment at St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute, Cameron is able to get around on crutches and is optimistic that he’ll be able to walk down the aisle at his wedding using just a cane.

“The ZeroG is helping me learn how to trust my legs to do what they’re meant to do again,” says Cameron.

The ZeroG Gait and Balance System is a robotic body-weight support system designed to help people like Cameron relearn to walk and gain balance. It removes a patient’s fear of falling during therapy, which is an obstacle to effective rehabilitation says Jake Allstot, assistant manager of rehabilitation at St. Luke’s. “Taking that first step is scary,” says Jake. “The ZeroG helps us completely take that fear away.”
