A Class II medical device, the WalkAideTM, available exclusively through SPS, uses advanced sensor technology and software to restore functionality to patients with foot drop.

The WalkAide System analyzes the unique movement of the leg and foot and creates a unique stimulation pattern for walking, then sends appropriate functional electrical stimulation (FES) to the common peroneal nerve as it passes near the head of the fibula. This stimulation activates the muscles that dorsiflex the foot at the appropriate time during the gait cycle, producing a much more natural, efficient, and safe walking pattern.

Registration for one of the 2007 SPS WalkAide Certification courses is available.
