Functional electrical stimulation (FES) with MyGait® lifts the foot at just the right time in the walking, or gait cycle. Walking becomes faster and more efficient. With MyGait®, you can be in the moment rather than concentrating on every step.
MyGait is a surface stimulator, acting on your nerves via electrodes placed on your skin to transform the way you walk.
A special feature of MyGait® is the integrated 2nd channel. This makes it possible that an additional muscle group can be stimulated. Thus, for example, the gait pattern can be further with improved with knee stimulation to give additional support when walking. The 2nd channel can be switched on selectively.
A small switch you wear under your heel sends a wireless signal to the stimulator worn on a cuff just below your knee. The stimulator can then activate the muscles responsible for lifting your foot. This can result in an improved and more natural gait, reducing the risk of falls.
As a bonus, your lower leg muscles are exercised with MyGait, and they can get stronger, which can also make walking easier.
