GAIT LLC was founded in 2012 when two retired business women were sitting on the beach one sunny, summer afternoon. Their conversation turned to the increased reporting of neurological disorders, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and autism.
A young relative of one of those two women has autism, and she witnessed how the boy’s behavior changed from agitated to calm after a horseback riding session.
As equine-assisted therapy has been shown to provide very positive results, why couldn’t the movement of a walking horse be utilized in an affordable, portable device that would be available around the clock?
The result of their research is REST®, a unique seat that effectively replicates the gait of a slow walking horse.
Today, REST holds design and utility patents. Manufactured in the USA using American labor, REST is helping people young and old with ADHD lead happier, more productive lives.
