|The WalkAide can replace the traditional foot brace to re-engage a person's existing nerve pathways and muscles.|
The recruitment of existing muscles results in reduction of atrophy and walking fatigue – a common side effect of foot bracing.
The WalkAide System is an advanced Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) System for the treatment of Foot Drop caused by upper motor neuron injury such as:
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Stroke (CVA)
- Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
- Cerebral Palsy (CP)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Utilizing a patented tilt sensor technology, the WalkAide stimulates the common peroneal nerve to lift the foot at the right time during the gait cycle, prompting a more natural, efficient, and safe walking pattern. WalkAide users have the freedom to walk with or without footwear, up and down the stairs, and even sidestep.
Higher Standard of Care
The benefits of FES, as an active dorsiflexion assist system, are becoming more evident through published research, resulting in an increased demand for this technology in the medical community. The WalkAide is a dynamic therapeutic option that never stops working. Offering the WalkAide helps position your practice as a cutting-edge healthcare provider.
