The reported benefits from studies of the ODFS include improved walking speed and endurance, less trips and falls as the foot doesn’t catch on the ground, greater walking confidence and increased range of walking.
An initial improvement of 20% improved walking speed has been reported in clinical studies of stroke and MS patients who used the ODFS. This improvement, known as an “orthotic effect” is because the stimulator bestows an immediate walking improvement by lessening the drag of the foot on the ground and provides assistance with swinging the leg.
An ongoing improvement of approximately 27% improved speed can be expected with continued use of the ODFS. Measured reduction in effort of walking with the ODFS averages 36% in MS patients.
