Electrical stimulation is used to improve muscle strength in conditions where there is weakness of muscle as, for instance, after knee surgery.
Because a dropped foot stimulator activates muscle during walking, continued use may improve the functioning of a weakened (paretic) muscle. However, a more important effect may be improved overall conditioning due to increased periods of walking because the stimulator makes walking easier.
Walking with an ODFS after stroke or MS may lead to increased activity/ endurance (less time spent sitting) and improved physical conditioning.
