Do you have foot drop as a result of a stroke?
Innovative Neurotronics Inc. is currently conducting a randomized, controlled clinical trial for patients who have had a stroke and are experiencing the condition commonly referred to as Foot Drop. The purpose of the trial is to compare the use of a functional electrical stimulation (FES) device with the standard of care Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO). The WalkAide is an external stimulator that allows patients with foot drop to ambulate. The device functions by using a microprocessor with a built in tilt sensor that allows for precise timing of stimulus to create a normalized gait pattern. The device fits on a small cuff, is about the size of a pager and can be worn with or without shoes.
