NESS L300 Foot Drop System


The system consists of three main components. A Functional Stimulation Cuff, a Control Unit, and a Gait Sensor, all of which communicate wirelessly, eliminating the need for troublesome, externally worn wires and connectors, making the system simple and easy to use.

While walking, the Intelli-Sense Gait Sensor detects gait events and transmits wireless signals to synchronize the electrical pulses delivered by the RF stem unit. These pulses activate the nerves, stimulating the muscles that cause the foot to lift off the ground during the appropriate time during gait. The miniature control unit allows simple operation while displaying real-time information regarding the system’s status.
