ALFESS is a new modern device, intended to improve gait when foot drop, and diminished foot & toe clearance is present. It assists the nerves of the tibialis anterior to actively dorsiflex the foot. The device is applied to the upper part of the lower leg. During walking, sensors identify the speed and angles of the leg to adapt to the walking pattern. An algorithm processes the information and sends out electrical impulses to the nerves to lift the forefoot. The user can easily increase or decrease the level of stimulation at any time.

The unit has a sleek and conforming shape and works well for bilateral use. Thanks to a magnetic clasp and unique controls, the unit can be operated with one hand. The training mode assists to achieve the best rehabilitation result. Training can be done either with the patient's clinician, or the patient can do training independently after being provided with clear instructions.

The unit is easy to handle and charge. Control settings on the device, with the remote control provided, or via the smartphone app.

Recommended Range Of Application: Central Nervous System diagnoses such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Stroke (CVA), Cerebral Palsy (CP), Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury, and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Contraindications: Do not use with electronic monitoring equipment, NMR-imaging, defibrillator, and high-frequency medical devices. Powered muscle stimulators should not be used on patients with cardiac demand pacemakers. Do not use if you have a history of autonomic dysreflexia. Do not use FES following recent surgery where muscle contraction may disrupt the healing process. For more information about precautions and warnings, please read the instructions for use.
