ActiGait® is a foot lifter stimulator implant that assumes the task of initiating the lifting action of the foot when walking.
Weakness of dorsiflexion of the foot is a frequent problem after a stroke. Because of the paralyzed muscles, the foot is not raised sufficiently when walking. If conventional methods were unable to help you as a stroke patient, Otto Bock offers a completely new therapy: ActiGait® is a foot lifter stimulator implant that assumes the task of initiating the lifting action of the foot when walking.
Scientific studies prove that ActiGait® noticeably increases walking speed and significantly increases walking safety. Therefore ActiGait® has a direct, positive effect on quality of life. You are once again able to focus on your environment and fellow men more easily because walking requires less of your attention. The mobility you gain has a positive effect on your personal well-being and performance.
ActiGait® can be implanted under the skin of the thigh in a day surgery procedure. After the wound has healed, the stimulator is individually adjusted to your needs. The function control unit is so easy to handle that you can even use it with impaired arm functionality.
