ALFESS™ is a new modern device, intended to improve gait when foot drop, diminished foot and toe clearance is present. It assists the nerves of tibialis anterior to actively dorsiflex the foot. The device is applied to the upper part of the lower leg. During walking, sensors identify speed and angles of the leg to adapt to the walking pattern. An algorithm processes the information and sends out electrical impulses to the nerves to lift the forefoot. The user can easily increase or decrease the level of stimulation at any time.
The unit has a sleek and conforming shape, works well for bilateral use. Thanks to magnetic clasp and unique controls the unit can be operated with one hand!
The training mode assists to achieve the best rehabilitation result. Training can be done either with the patients clinician, or the patient can do training independently after being provided with clear instructions.
The unit is easy to handle and charge. Control settings on the device, or with remote control provided, or via Smart Phone App.
