Discuss physical medical devices that can be used to treat or improve MS symptoms

Baclofen pump

This device has been suggested to me a few times by my neuro. I find baclofen very effective for leg cramps/spasms, but it does bring with it some sedating effect. With the pump, the baclofen goes right into the bloodstream, without the sedating part. I am very hesitant, for a few reasons. I'm not crazy about the idea of abdominal surgery, with the permanent implantation of the device and the spinal catheter. I also don't ...

WalkAide use at 4 years

It has been four years since I started using the WalkAide. I wish my foot would dorsiflex instead of an evertion direction (up but toward the side away from me). It makes balancing that much more difficult. I still step correctly more than incorrectly which keeps knee, hip and back problems at bay. Unfortunately, walking and walking any amount of distance remains a real challenge. I still rely on grasping any sturdy object to get ...

Bioness L300 Think Before you Buy!

My mom was thinking about getting a Bioness L300 and now I find out from her therapist, the Bioness study has finished…and it showed that its the SAME as an AFO! She said the study shows the people using the Bioness and those using an AFO had the same results and there is NO difference between them!

When talking to Bioness, they told us it was so much better, and they would help us try ...

MuSmate

I have bad foot drop in my right leg and I'm looking around for something to help with it. I know about the Bioness and WalkAide, but I may not be able to afford these options. I recently read about the MuSmate and was wondering if anyone has experience with it. I'm not particularly thrilled with the idea of having a bungee cord going down my leg, but I'm willing to keep an open mind. ...

Foot Strain

I have been using the Walkaide for the past several weeks with success, i.e., feeling supported enough to walk without a cane for about 1/4 mile on an even surface. However, the other day I walked in soft shoes (not sneakers as used previously) on an uneven country road for about the same distance, and I seem to have strained my foot (above ankle and around prominent outer bone on the foot that drops). Since ...

Advances In Exoskeleton

I just saw this over in one of the ALS forums that i visit regularly as its the latest advanced Exoskeleton device for those paralysed from spinal cord damage, neurological diseases etc. (myself since 1996 from CIDP). When i first saw these about five years ago they were very bulky with a large power pack mounted to the user's back and now they're shrinking in size and becoming very futuristic.

Bioness L300 system for sale

Like new BIONESS L300 system for left leg. Used less than 90 days.

I received this device last March. It did not work out well for me as my foot drop is too far advanced and afo's are safer for me.

Asking $3500. Includes entire kit plus extra stim pads.


Please Contact me if interested.
