Indications for Use: The Cionic Neural Sleeve NS-100 is intended to provide ankle dorsiflexion and/or plantarflexion in adult individuals with foot drop and/or to assist knee flexion or extension in adult individuals with muscle weakness related to upper motor neuron disease/injury (e.g. stroke, damage to pathways to the spinal cord). The Cionic Neural Sleeve NS-100 electrically stimulates muscles in the affected leg to provide ankle dorsiflexion and/or plantarflexion of the foot and/or knee flexion or extension; thus, it also may improve the individual’s gait.
The Cionic Neural Sleeve NS-100 may also:
-Facilitate muscle re-education
-Prevent/retard disuse atrophy
-Maintain or increase joint range of motion
-Increase local blood flow
Contraindications: individuals with implanted demand-type cardiac pacemaker or defibrillators should not use the Cionic Neural Sleeve; the Cionic Neural Sleeve should not be used over malignant tumors; the Cionic Neural Sleeve should not be placed over any areas where existing thrombosis is present; the Cionic Neural Sleeve should not be used on a leg where a regional disorder, such as a fracture or dislocation, could be adversely affected by motion from stimulation.
