According to the National Stroke Association, stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and there are a large proportion of people can survive a stroke. Stroke affects these people differently, and they have varies post-stroke symptoms. Some are going through fast progress while others might be suffering from a slow pace recovery process, which could last for the rest of their lives.
Among all the post-stroke symptoms, such as physical, social and emotional problems, limb malfunction is the most serious problem affecting every aspects of patients' daily life. We cannot walk, run, hold, or grab without limb functions. Foot drop, for example, is the most common symptoms for post-stroke patients. Foot drop, sometimes called "drop foot," is the inability to lift the front part of the foot, dragging foot and toes, scraping toes across the ground.
Nevertheless, rehabilitation is the only way to recover from a stroke. According to research and data online, there are approximately two-thirds of individuals survive from stroke and require rehabilitation. Rehabilitation, with the ultimate goal to improve patients' abilities to live independently, is not a panacea to reverse the damage of stroke but a process that can substantially help people achieve the best possible long-term outcome.
To maximize the positive effects of
rehabilitation and help post-stroke regain the most fundamental physical
function in life, we developed a series of Functional Electrical Stimulation
(FES) and Biofeedback rehabilitation devices for both clinical use and home
XFT-2001D Foot Drop System is an advanced functional electrical stimulation (FES) device that brings remarkable effects on foot drop patients, who suffer from gait disorder caused by central nervous system injuries, such as stroke, incomplete spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. It is the 3rd generation of XFT foot drop system and adopts several patents.
XFT-2003E H1 Hand Rehab System, a device that adopts biofeedback sEMG technique, EMG Triggered Stimulation (ETS) and Power Assistant Stimulation (PAS), helps hand paralyzed patients regain their hand functions.
XFT-2003D sEMG Biofeedback FES is an EMG triggered Functional Electrical Stimulator. It is a combination of NMES, EMG, ETS and multimedia interactive biofeedback rehabilitation training. The most important innovation is that XFT developed the rehab training system based on iOS, so patients can do the boring rehabilitation exercise by playing games with iPad, which makes the rehab training full of fun.
