Your treating physician can prescribe the foot drop system innoSTEP-WL as a remedy for weak foot dorsiflexion. The foot drop system uses functional electrostimulation of the peroneal nerve to compensate the weak foot dorsiflexion and improve gait pattern. This also can support the remodelling of neural pathways. The short tutorial clips illustrate the everyday handling of the innoSTEP-WL.
Presenting the scope of delivery and single components of the innoSTEP-WL.
It is very easy to detach the cuff from the stimulation unit, in order to make cleaning or replacing it as comfortable as possible.
It takes just a few steps to connect the cuff with the stimulation unit, so the everyday handling is very easy.
The adhesive electrodes allow a pinpoint stimulation of the peroneal nerve and must be used with the corresponding cuff.
The innoSTEP-WL is applied right below the knee and can enable patients to walk naturally again – despite a weak foot dorsiflexion.
The adhesive electrodes are placed on the head of the fibula and the tibial muscle.
