NESS L300 ( by Bioness Inc.) a neuroprosthetic device used to prevent foot drop during gait for patients with hemiparesis due to stroke, incomplete spinal cord injury or brain injury. It consists of a small wireless gait sensor, a leg cuff and a hand-held control unit. The leg cuff sits just below the knee and contains a stimulation unit and electrodes. When the heel comes off the ground, wireless signals from the gait sensor are sent to the stimulation unit in the leg cuff which stimulates the muscles to contract and lift the patient's foot while walking.
