Walking with a drooping foot

An ODFS is a device supplied by referral and sadly not on the NHS for people who have neurological problems controlling lifting their foot or other parts of their body.

The basic unit is setup so you have a sensor that goes under your heel in your shoe.

Then two pads acting as electrodes are fitted across the muscle that lifts the foot. The pads and the sensor are wired to a control box, inside your cloths. The unit works by sensing weight being taken off of your heel as you start to step forward , as it senses this it sends a burst of pulses in a controlled increasing then reducing intensity to lift and gently lower your foot.

This unit is very effective in helping people with drooping feet and help preventing people's toes dragging on the floor. It also improves peoples walking technique with this problem. This unit is not for everyone but I found it helpful.

The only problem I found was that batteries went flat too quick .If I had this unit longer I would have used rechargeable batteries. ODFS stands for Odstock Dropped Foot Stimulator and is supplied on referral by Sailsburyfes.
