NESS L300

What Is The NESS L300 Foot Drop System?

  • Foot drop is a partial leg paralysis that prevents the foot from lifting, causing instability and making it difficult to walk. Foot drop is described as ‘dragging of the foot’ or ‘slapping the ground’ and often occurs in individuals with upper motor neuron injury such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury. The emotional and physical fatigue experienced by those with foot drop may be devastating at first, but now there is hope.
  • The NESS L300 Foot Drop System from Bioness is a medical device that helps certain individuals walk with increased speed and improved balance – allowing you to regain your freedom and independence. The NESS L300 uses low-level electrical stimulation to activate the nerves which control the muscles to lift the foot. The system has three wireless components that adapt to changes in walking speed and terrain, allowing you to walk easily over stairs, grass and carpet. The NESS L300 is cleared for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CE-marked for the European Union, and endorsed by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
