The AlterG Bionic Leg is a battery-powered lower extremity device that is used as a part of a comprehensive therapy program. The device is used with patients who have suffered a stroke or who have chronic, degenerative neurological gait impairments.
While wearing the Bionic Leg, patients can work on motions like sit-to-stand, walking and negotiating stairs.
Built in sensors detect weight shift and knee angle changes, applying assistive force in leg extension to help patients stand. Madonna’s expert clinicians control and adjust different settings in real-time for the patient to practice a normalized gait pattern.
