XFT-2001 Foot Drop System Now Available In The UK Will Improve Quality of Life for People With Drop Foot Tuesday 13 August 2013 PDF Print A revolutionary home treatment device using Functional Electrical Stimulation technology (FES) is now easily available in the UK for people suffering with foot drop. The condition causing foot drop can be temporary or permanent and possible causes include: • multiple sclerosis • stroke • cerebral palsy • motor neurone disease • spinal muscular atrophy • spinal stenosis • Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease • acquired peripheral neuropathy • damage to the nerve that passes below the knee • muscular dystrophy • myositis People suffering with foot drop may find it hard to clear the affected foot from the ground. This reduces balance and stability, reduces pace and increases the risk of stumbles and falls which can be particularly dangerous for those with paralysis elsewhere in the body. The XFT-2001 Foot Drop System uses FES technology in a simple, accessible manner which makes it easy to use at home. Furthermore, it is readily available to anyone who needs it but has been denied it on the NHS. StressNoMore is the first and only UK retailer of the XFT-2001 and is gearing up for high interest in the product from both patients and physiotherapists. Stephanie Taylor, managing director of StressNoMore said “The XFT-2001 isn’t just another health product; it can give people independence, the ability to walk confidently and safely, and it can help them strengthen muscles and become healthier. It’s so important that FES is available and we’re very excited to be offering it to anyone who needs it.” The XFT-2001 Foot Drop System is priced at £985 but is available VAT free to those with medically diagnosed foot drop.
