The Walkaide System
The WalkAide is a functional electrical stimulation device used to improve walking ability of people living with dropfoot. Dropfoot is a condition characterized by weakness or paralysis of the muscles involved in dorsiflexing (lifting) the foot when walking. It causes a person to either drag the foot and toes or engage in a high-stepping walk called steppage gait. A significant number of individuals – men and women, young and old – experience difficulty with the most simple day-to-day activities because of mobility dysfunctions such as peroneal nerve palsy that lead to dropfoot.
WalkAide was designed to restore mobility to those individuals seeking a return to independence.
The WalkAide can help patients who exhibit dropfoot due to Brain or Spinal diseases or Trauma, such as Stroke (CVA), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Brain Tumour, or Cerebral Palsy (CP).
