 ST. PAUL, MN- FEB. 2, 2023. Lite Run Inc., a patented medical device distributor, manufacturer, and inventor of Lite Run MarsWalk, today announced the exclusive partnership with Concordance Healthcare Solutions LLC, one of the largest, independent healthcare distributors in the US. 

“We are proud to partner with Concordance as their purpose aligns beautifully with the hearts and minds of Lite Run. Our goal is to further our reach and get Lite Run technology into the hands of all humans who need it across the U.S. Yes patients – but also therapists, nurses and nursing assistants that are on the front lines of rehabilitation therapy. Together we will positively impact the lives of many- and that is the point,” said Michael Bankowski, Lite Run CEO. 

About Lite Run Lite Run Inc. located in St. Paul, MN brings to market a much-needed anti-gravity exosuit, or “spacesuit”, with the mission of restoring mobility and well-being of users quickly, safely, and cost effectively. 

The Need for Lite Run 2.5 million people in the US require physical therapy to restore mobility (called “gait” training”) from injury or disability. 30 million Americans live with long-term disabilities and utilize therapy to increase mobility and independence. These numbers are projected to double by 2030 as Baby Boomers continue to age in the United States. Staffing shortages plague the industry and compromise the ability to implement safe and effective rehabilitation. The founders of Lite Run saw a glaring shortcoming in the rehabilitation industry and harnessed technology to fix it. 

How Lite Run Works This patented spacesuit technology unweights up to 50% of a patient’s body weight. The amount of weight the patient supports is significantly less, making walking, balancing, and physical activity easier. Lite Run MarsWalk offers a 

complete “sit-to-stand” feature that helps patients stand up from a wheelchair or bed, often for the first time in years. Lite Run is successfully helping patients restore mobility from stroke, paraplegia, traumatic brain injury and many other patients with gait impairments. 

Addressing Needs of Industry With the power of antigravity, Lite Run MarsWalk drastically reduces the physical demands of therapists while increasing patient mobility and independence. The system nearly eliminates the need to lift or transfer a patient, as the user is supported and secured by the Lite Run MarsWalk. This frees the therapist to focus on therapy. Lite Run meets the needs of industry while adhering to their mission of increasing the quality of life for those impacted by aging. Clinical results show that patients are walking 2X farther in therapy sessions compared to presently used harnesses. Lite Run MarsWalk is reducing demands on staff while doubling patient progress. The patented Lite Run MarsWalk system is restoring mobility and well-being quickly, safely, and cost-effectively. To learn more about Lite Run success stories, please visit

It also substantially lightens the burden on physical therapists by greatly reducing a therapist’s need to lift or transfer a patient. The system also frees the therapist to focus on a patient’s gait therapy, since the patient is secure in the system.”
