Synchronized Nerve Stimulation

The Device

Sensor-synchronized nerve stimulation of leg musclegroups for “foot drop” during ambulation.

The Challenge

The Technology
  • Position-based sensing and wireless communication between heel sensor and stimulation cuff
  • Real-time signal processing for precise timing to wearer’s gait
  • Rugged construction and power management for all-day use

How Minnetronix Added Value

  • Complete product development and verification for the sensor and worn stimulator
  • Miniaturized wireless communication and efficient power consumption
  • Integration with cuff and disposables configurations
  • Product manufacturing
