MyGait surface stimulator
the system consists of several components. if the person lifts his/her foot (1), the heel switch sends a signal to the stimulator in the leg cuff (2). this stimulates the nerve which again activates the dorsal flexor (3): walking becomes easier (4).
in designing the cuff, GP not only focused on it being easy to apply – with only one hand – thanks to its casual design, both leg cuff and heel switch do not appear like a medical product. the remote control, with which the functions can be modified easily without taking off the stimulator, was designed small and user-friendly.MyGait: meaningful progress.
