    New Fes Walking Therapy Proposal


    I would like to hear your opinions and ideas about my proposal how to combine old (Parastep) and new (FES Garment pants) and all
    based on some results and Ideas from Kunming continuous 6-6-6 walking program - but targeting Incomplete injuries!.
    I was able to connect people from Parastep and Myant company (makers of FES garment) and they
    are working on this new therapeutic module.
    Please, see details on my Blog

    I have setup this proposal related to my needs the way how I envision this would work for me.
    But this is obviously very customizable solution.

    To put all elements together and test this therapy I would need to organize fundraising and any idea
    how I can do this, the most effective way, would be highly appreciated!

    If Dr. Wise Young can review & comment this New walking therapy proposal - it will be very helpful!
    Thank you all !

    The Indego was supposed to incorporate FES to the exoskeleton.
    The reason I moved from the ReWalk to the Indego.
    For me anyway the Indego was a better exoskeleton, but still no FES... I'm still waiting !

    Talks about their FES.

      Thank you for this input!

    Dr. Young is most unlikely to see or respond to your post here. He does not frequent the CareCure forums any more, and has not done so for years.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    Thanks for your interest in the FES functionality. We are still working on the integration of FES for the Indego Therapy exoskeleton. For the Indego Personal device we will evaluate in a second phase if FES can be offered also.

    Please let me know if you have additional questions.

    Best regards,

      One important question would be if Parker / Indego is planing to enable FES within their exoskeleton to be used by higher injury level as for C6 / C5 as their therapeutic version of exoskeleton is only supporting C7 and lower injuries. I guess I have to send email with this question to Dr. Bircher.
