How Does it Work?

FES is low-level electrical stimulation used when a muscle and its nerve supply remain healthy but, due to an injury or neurological condition, communication from the brain cannot occur. In these cases, FES may replace the natural electrical signals from the brain and help the affected body part move again.

FES may also “reeducate” the muscles of the affected limb, preventing muscle atrophy, improving local blood flow; and helping maintain or increase joint range of motion. With continued stimulation over time, the brain may even recapture the movement and relearn how to perform it without FES.

The L300 Go’s accelerometer and three-axis gyroscope monitor and gather information about the patient’s movement. Using that data, the system detects gait irregularities and then deploys corrective nerve stimulation in 0.01 seconds. This helps patients lift their feet fully and correctly on various surfaces—including stairs, ramps, and uneven terrain—at different walking speeds.

The system’s onboard controls ease utilization, with the abilities to power on and off, change the functional mode, and manage intensity levels based on clinician specifications.

Indications for Use: The L300 Go System is intended to provide ankle dorsiflexion in adult and pediatric individuals with foot drop and/or to assist knee flexion or extension in adult individuals with muscle weakness related to upper motor neuron disease/injury (e.g., stroke, damage to pathways to the spinal cord). The L300 Go System electrically stimulates muscles in the affected leg to provide ankle dorsiflexion of the foot and/or knee flexion or extension; thus, it also may improve the individual’s gait.

The L300 Go System may also facilitate muscle re-education, prevent/retard disuse atrophy, maintain or increase joint range of motion, and increase local blood flow.

L300 Go is contraindicated in patients with a demand-type cardiac pacemaker, defibrillator or any electrical implant. Do not use the system on a leg where metallic implant is directly underneath the electrodes, a cancerous lesion is present or suspected, or on a leg with regional disorder (e.g., fracture or dislocation) which could be adversely affected by motion from the stimulation. Use caution in patients with diagnosed or suspected cardiac problems or epilepsy.
