Odstock stimulators offer a high quality, versatile, user friendly technology to clinicians – technology that can be easily applied in the hospital/rehabilitation setting, private clinic, orthotic facility or community/home setting.
Easily accessed features in the ODFS Pace include current ramping, pulse duration adjustment, fixed or adaptive timing, extension of stimulation to improve ankle stability on weight bearing, heel rise or heel strike triggering of stimulation and a delay feature, useful in slower gait situations.
During the early phase of Stroke Rehabilitation, the Pace can be used in gait re-education to facilitate walking and to reduce compensatory gait patterns in the presence of dropped foot and a paretic lower limb. Gait training is possible that addresses the swing and stance phase abnormalities common in the neurological patient.
As well as offering default settings for dropped foot, gait interventions, the ODFS Pace can also be utilized for the following gait re-training approaches in both neurological, musculoskeletal and orthopaedic applications, as for example:
The ODFS Pace features an in built sounder that can be enabled to provide auditory
conformation of optimum responses and auditory feedback to the patient as he/she walks.
The ODFS® Pace incorporates a number of innovative features making gait training simple, effective and rewarding for both clinician and patient. It offers tremendous clinical utility and treatment outcomes that can be observed and documented. These features include:
For more complex gait applications – the O2CHS – a 2 channel dropped foot stimulator provides 2 channels of stimulation for bilateral dropped foot or stimulation of a 2nd muscle or muscle group. Click here for details
