There are no documented adverse side effects from use of a dropped foot stimulator. However, certain habits need to be established when using a device. These include daily cleaning/refreshing of electrodes after use and disposing of used electrodes when they deteriorate with use.
Not observing these practices can lead to skin irritation over the electrode sites and the possibility of not being able to use stimulation until the irritation is resolved. Your clinician will provide the necessary education around proper use of the device and it is important that you follow the protocols outlined.
