The stimulation feels like a mild or moderate tingling in the area where the electrodes are located.
Because the stimulation is triggered by the heel switch, this tingling sensation comes on when the heel is lifted from the ground and ceases when weight is taken on the limb.
Movement is also felt at the hip, knee and ankle. The majority of people fitted with the device find the sensation from the stimulation comfortable. The sensation generated by the stimulation also “cues” the gait pattern in that it provides feedback to the user during walking which sometimes can be helpful.
