Stroke patients and others with central nervous system injuries or disease now have remarkable new treatment options at Baptist DeSoto. The NESS H200® Hand Rehabilitation System and the wireless NESS L300™ Foot Drop System from Bioness Inc. allow many patients to walk again and regain hand control.

The innovative functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems help patients recovering from stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and incomplete spinal cord injury regain muscle control, giving them more function and more freedom.

How Does it Work?

The low-profile NESS L300 device is worn on the lower leg and foot, enabling easier, more natural walking and a return to a more normal lifestyle. It may also stimulate muscle re-education, prevent or slow disuse atrophy, maintain or increase joint range of motion, and increase blood flow.

During therapy or under the guidance of a therapist, the NESS L300 is specially calibrated to the patient. There are no bulky wires to deal with, and the compact design even allows patients to wear their normal footwear. And unlike systems that can’t be easily applied or removed, the NESS L300 is surprisingly simple, making it ideal for inpatient or outpatient use.

The NESS L300 not only lets you walk smoother, but faster as well. A built-in sensor recognizes the surface you are walking on and adjusts accordingly.

The NESS H200 is worn on the forearm and hand and enables patients to perform everyday activities that were previously impossible for them. It can help the hand open and close, reduce stiffness, increase range of motion and strength, improve circulation, and assist in regaining awareness of an impaired limb.

Like the L300, the H200 is comfortable and easy to use. It incorporates a self-adjusting fit to hold the wrist and hand in a functional position. This superior fit, coupled with the H200 electrode placement, allows patients to remove and replace the device without compromising their therapy.
