L300 Data

A research study showed the L300 Foot Drop System may increase walking speed, improve stability, lower the incidence of falling and provide more confidence.1 Another study2 showed that the system offers significant improvements when compared to walking without it.

The results speak for themselves (walking with the L300 Foot Drop System vs. without):

  • 17% increase in average walking speed
  • 34% increase in average walking speed after 8 weeks
  • 45% improvement in gait symmetry index after 8 weeks
  • 33% improvement in stride time variability after 8 weeks (a marker of gait stability and fall risk)
  • Fall frequency decreased by 92%

Chronic Stroke L300 Study2

Neuroprosthetic Benefit

24 patients with chronic hemiparesis (5.8 ± 5.2 yrs post) participated in an 8 week study using the L300 Foot Drop System
