Bioness Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Assessment

£50.00

Description

A clinical assessment for the Bioness FES system will be required by one of our specialist clinicians to ensure suitability and assess the correct Bioness FES device needed. Our specialist, fully certified clinicians are available at our new clinic location based in Eccleshall Stafford or we can travel to you to carry out a full assessment and trial of the devices. A £50 assessment cost is required to access this service (There may be additional costs for travel expenses). The £50 Assessment fee is refundable on purchase.

If you have any questions please contact a member of the team using our online enquiries form or by emailing enquires@totalbodyorthotics.com

The Bioness L100 and L300 Systems.

The L300 Go system lifts your foot as you walk. This improves your gait pattern, making it smoother and safer. In addition to being applied in case of drop foot, the system can also be used for knee instability and promotes muscle rehabilitation.
For users with conditions affecting the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis or infantile cerebral palsy, or who have had a stroke, the L300 Go stimulates the affected nerves and the muscles that they control. The system can therefore initiate dorsiflexion as well as knee flexion/extension. Three versions are available depending on your needs.

Benefits

  • Helps lift the foot in gait to reduce the risk of falls.
  • Increase gait speed and independence.
  • Stimulator cuff can be worn discreetly under clothing
  • Easy to fit and simple to use.
  • Innovative technologies such as a new learning algorithm and high-grade movement sensors ensure a more dynamic gait.
  • The functional system promotes muscle rehabilitation, mobility in the joint and circulation
  • The surface stimulator and a thigh cuff allow the knee to be stabilised

Indications:

  • The L300 Go provides ankle dorsiflexion in children and adults with drop foot. It also supports knee flexion/extension in adults with muscle weakness due to a disease or injury of the central nervous system (e.g. after a stroke or injury to the spinal cord).
  • The L300 Go electrically stimulates the muscles in the affected leg to initiate ankle dorsiflexion and/or knee flexion or extension. This helps to improve the gait. Plus, the L300 Go promotes rehabilitation of the muscles and helps to prevent or delay muscle atrophy.
  • This functional orthosis can help you maintain or expand the joint’s range of motion and increase local blood flow

Fast, intuitive fitting by qualified personnel

Qualified personnel can fit the system quickly and intuitively thanks to the low number of components.
A quick fit mode and Bluetooth programming are both available.

Detecting movements and providing stimulation at the right time

Acceleration sensors monitor movement patterns in all three planes. A new learning algorithm detects the respective changes in movement and can provide stimulation within 0.01 seconds.

Optional foot sensor and remote control

Thanks to the integrated motion detection feature and onboard controls, the foot sensor and remote control that were required for the previous model are now optional.

One electrode can do more

The L300 Go can control both the lifting of the foot as well as its inward and outward rotation with just a single electrode.

Different Options Available

L100 Go system

The L100 Go is a single-channel system. This version is a device for users for whom adequate physiological dorsiflexion is possible with single-channel stimulation and who have no additional instability of the knee or weak thigh muscles.

L300 Go system

The L300 Go is a multi-channel system. A single electrode controls two stimulation channels for a balanced foot lift – so it’s possible to make very fine supination, pronation and dorsiflexion settings. An additional surface stimulator with a thigh cuff is available for users with instability of the knee or weak thigh muscles.

Cost:

Cost we be dependent of the device required post assessment.
