Training in China

Monday, March 14, 2016

Mandy is currently in China at NewTech training to be a 'trainer' for the i-walk 200.

The ‘i-walk’ 200 series is a Foot Drop Rehab System, which utilises Tilt Sensor Technology and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) to analyze the movement of the leg and stimulate the appropriate nerves, helping the foot to lift every step. The low level electrical impulses produced by i-walk activate the muscles to raise the foot at the appropriate time during each step cycle, creating a more natural and efficient walking pattern.

i-walk Introduction

i-walk 200 is a FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) device.


While walking, the device acquires, records and processes the gait signal in real-time and automatically triggers the stimulator to deliver electrical pulses to the target nerves and muscles through the surface electrodes, improving gait.
i-walk 200E also has a training mode which is used to re-educate muscles while the patient is resting.

 

i-walk 200 recommended for patients with foot drop commonly caused by

  •  Stroke (CVA)
  •  Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  •  Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
  •  Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  •  Cerebral Palsy (CP)
