Bioness L-300
Too bad I didn't spot this before Christmas! Would make for a nice gift if money was no object eh? Nice to see that there are other types of options when it comes to walking disabilty. I do fear that this will be a reality for me one day. With having numbness and lack of sensation in my legs on and off since 2001 I can only imagine it'll continue in my lifetime with this disease. I guess I can only hope that technology and research will just keep outpacing the progression of my disease to my benefit!

"The NESS L300™ system is a state-of-the-art FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) system designed to help patients with life altering neurological disorders affecting lower extremities- including sufferers of stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
NESS L300 - Rx Only The NESS L300 is a low-profile device worn on the lower leg and foot, which enables easier, more natural walking and a return to a more normal lifestyle. In addition to facilitating a more fluid gait, the NESS L300 may also stimulate muscle re-education, prevent/retard disuse atrophy, maintain or increase joint range of motion and increase blood flow."
