Neurological Rehab Using Bioness Systems
Alta Bates Summit is currently using Bioness systems for hand and foot rehabilitation in patients with certain conditions.
Hand Rehabilitation System
Designed to Improve the Use of Your Hand
The NESS H200 is a state-of-the-art functional electrical stimulation (FES) system that uses low-level stimulation to help your hand open and close. Customizable stimulation programs may help you perform daily activities and also reeducate your muscles over time.
Foot Drop System
Walk Faster, Farther, with More Freedom
The NESS L300 is an advanced functional electrical stimulation (FES) system that sends low-level electrical impulses to the common peroneal nerve in your leg, stimulating muscles to lift your foot. The NESS L300 automatically senses, while you are walking, your foot position, terrain as it changes, and your walking speed. Therefore, the NESS L300 may assist your gait (a manner of walking) following an upper motor neuron injury or disease.
