Reliable, proven technology that improves walking ability after neurologic impairment.
Clinical excellence & expertise in
providing Functional Electrical
Stimulation (FES) Technology
Gait technology should be considered at any time post stroke to improve walking ability particularly where traditional rehabilitation approaches have not been successful in restoring a safe, functional gait pattern. Dropped foot stimulation addresses issues such as increased muscle tone – spasticity that impedes normal ankle movement where the foot is fixed in an inverted […]Read more
FES in Stroke A standard intervention for addressing foot drop (the inability to lift the foot during walking) has been the use of an ankle foot orthosis (AFO). An AFO holds the ankle in a fixed position to help clear the foot over ground, preventing it from dropping and catching on the ground during walking. […]Read more
FES in MS: Long term FES studies are valuable as they provide evidence to assist with decision making and patient management on use of FES. A study, recently published in the Journal of MS Care, is summarized below. It concludes that even with deterioration from MS progression, affecting walking, FES continues to be of value […]Read more
