Bionic Clothing

Pioneering neural stimulative clothing company Cionic has released its prototype lower extremity garment to help patients with foot drop move easier and with more independence.

Technology to help with foot drop

The wearable “bionic” device analyzes, predicts, and augments a person’s movement. The sleeve-like device worn on the lower limb uses algorithms to read the signal sent from the brain to muscles. It can predict an individual’s movement within a second before his or her foot lifts off the ground. The adaptive system, which employs sensors and electrical stimulation, sends electrical signals that activate the body’s muscles to produce a more natural movement, and provide real-time adjustments.
