The Bioness L300-Plus system is intended for independent use by people suffering from foot drop and lack of knee control, a condition caused by damage to or disease of the central nervous system. The L300-Plus generates gentle functional electric stimulation (FES) of the muscle and simultaneous activation of the knee and foot, thus facilitating a stable and safe gait.
The system is constructed of plastic, elastomer and textile materials aimed to combine strong structural functionality, springiness, flexibility and a soft touch.
The device is FDA approved.
