NMES is the use of electrical stimulation to retrain muscles and improve muscular strength after injury or surgery, particularly for the quadriceps muscle.3 The L360 Thigh System includes a lightweight cuff that is wrapped around the thigh, with embedded electrodes placed over the affected muscles. The electrodes are connected to a stimulator, and a wireless pulse generator delivers and regulates the timing and intensity of the stimulation to the electrodes.

FES is low-level electrical stimulation used to restore or improve a muscle’s function as treatment for an injury or neurological condition. Neurologic FES produces movements or functions that mimic the user’s natural voluntary actions. With continued stimulation over time, the brain may even recapture the movement and relearn how to perform it without FES. Orthopedic FES focuses on specificity of strength training with function.

You may be a candidate for treatment with the L360 Thigh System if you have received or will receive total knee replacement or anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery, or if you have osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee or certain other orthopaedic knee conditions.

Treatment with the L360 Thigh System should not hurt. Most users describe treatments as causing a tingly sensation.

Your healthcare provider will determine how long you should continue treatment.

To get the L360 Thigh System for home use, a Bioness-trained healthcare provider must evaluate you and write a prescription for you to receive the device.

Your health insurer may cover use of the L360 Thigh System in a clinical setting if the treatment is medically necessary. Your health plan also may cover some or all of the cost of the device for home use. Please contact your health plan or provider for complete coverage information.

Indications for Use: The L360 Thigh System is intended 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 L360 Thigh System electrically stimulates muscles in the affected leg to provide knee flexion or extension; thus, it also may improve the individual’s gait.

The L360 Thigh System may also facilitate muscle re-education, prevent/retard disuse atrophy, maintain or increase joint range of motion, increase local blood flow, provide early post-surgical quadriceps and hamstring strengthening, improve post-surgical knee stability secondary to quadriceps and hamstring strengthening, and relax muscle spasms.

L360 Thigh System 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.
