Walkaid or bioness- both legs?

So, what if you have 2 weak legs and a very weak core...will these aids help? Does anyone have a machine that sends pulses to the core. I've wondered about the contraptions you can buy at the sport store here, where you place pads on your stomach to make it firmer...I wonder if it's safe to use on my husband. But mainly if he has the above problems, is it still possible for the walk ...

Truthfully, changing the electrodes?

I was just wondering how often people are actucally changing the sensors--electrodes--whatever they are called.

The information provided says to change them every 1-2 weeks but mine have been on for 3 weeks and, frankly, they look just the same as week 1. I wondered how I could tell they HAVE to be changed.

I wear my Walkaide all day every day.

I just wondered what others are doing.

For example, I could go in to the supermarket (and shop) instead of waiting in the car. I am able to walk from the parking lot to the restaurant intead of being dropped off while my husband parks the car. I am able to walk through ...
