Multi Channel FES for foot drop and knee control
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems are capable of producing measurable mobility improvements for patients with foot drop and/or knee control issues caused by an upper motor neuron disease or injury such as: Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury. Multi-channel stimulation can be used to influence knee position as well as aid dorsiflexion at the ankle. The addition of hamstring stimulation can further influence hip and knee kinematics to improve mobility. Advances in dual channel DES systems such as the L300go which use 3D Motion Detection which monitors patient movement in all three kinematic planes and triggers stimulation precisely when needed making the use of a foot sensor optional. The lack of requirement for foot sensors open up the potential for FES devices to be used in a wider patient group.
