NESS L300 Foot Drop System
Sometimes just the simple act of taking a step, can be challenging for people recovering from a stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy or incomplete spinal cord injury. Often, the partial leg paralysis of these conditions prevents the foot from lifting properly to walk. Referred to as “foot drop,” it can cause instability, making walking difficult and limiting function and independence.
Using the latest in wireless technology, the Bioness NESS L300™ Foot Drop System is designed to lift the foot during the swing phase of walking. The Foot Drop System is intended to increase speed and stability, offering people with foot drop more freedom to participate in everyday activities.
When the sensor detects “heel off,” it sends a message to the leg cuff that then electrically stimulates the leg muscles to lift the foot. This chain reaction of events results in patients achieving a more normal walk.
