Take the stairs. Stroll through the park. Dance.
You may be able to do all this – and more – once again. Thanks to the NESS L300 Foot Drop System.
The NESS L300 is an advanced functional electrical stimulation (FES) system that sends low-level electrical impulses to the
nerve in your leg, stimulating muscles to lift your foot. The result: The NESS L300 helps people with foot drop walk
more naturally, and enjoy greater independence and a better quality of life
Foot drop results from an injury or illness that makes the foot and ankle muscles weak or paralyzed.
The following diagnoses that affect the central nervous system may cause foot drop:
• Multiple sclerosis
• Traumatic brain injury
• Incomplete spinal cord injury
• Cerebral palsy
When a person who has foot drop walks, the foot may drop and catch on the ground as the foot moves forward. The foot also may slap the ground as the person lowers it after stepping. To compensate for foot drop, some people hike their hip or swing their leg out to the side to keep their toes from catching on the ground
