The NESS L300 is an advanced functional electrical stimulation system that delivers electrical stimulation to activate and contract specific leg muscles in a precise sequence.
This in turn activates the muscles to lift the foot to take a step. The result may be a more natural walking pattern (gait) with enhanced stability.
The L300 Foot Drop System has adaptive wireless technology that senses when a person's foot is on or off the ground and automatically adjusts to changes in walking speed and terrain.
Who may benefit
People who may benefit from the NESS L300 include those who have experienced a central nervous system injury or disease.
How it works
The L300 Foot Drop System has three main parts that use wireless communication to "talk" to each other.
comfortable, lightweight functional stimulation cuff: The leg cuff is a small, light-weight device that fits just below the knee and contains electrodes which deliver stimulation where it helps the individual most.
innovative intelli-sense gait sensor: The gait sensor attaches to the individual's shoe and lets the leg cuff know if the heel is on the ground or in the air.
wireless, portable control unit: The hand-held remote control lets the individual adjust the level of stimulation and turn the unit on and off. The controller can be carried in a pocket, bag or purse.
