Footdrop (Dropfoot) and its Treatment

Dropfoot” or as it is sometimes called “Footdrop” is the inability to raise the front part of the foot sometimes dragging it along. Although it is not a disease in itself it emanates from any number of other physical issues ranging from injury to spine or leg muscle. The treatments range from accupuncture to surgery. Physicians around the world have suggested many different approaches.
One of the most effective physical rehabilitation solutions produced involves the use of the LEGTUTOR.
The LEGTUTOR system is a key component of physical therapy for dropfoot and other lower limb disabling medical issues. The LEGTUTOR physical rehabilitation product is an ergonomic wearable leg brace with dedicated rehabilitation software.  The LEGTUTOR  is based on performing controlled exercise rehabilitation practice at a patient customized level with real time accurate feedback on the patient’s performance. This means that the LEGTUTOR system allows the physical therapist to prescribe a leg rehabilitation program customized to the patient’s foot,knee and hip movement ability at their stage of rehabilitation. The LEGTUTOR uses biofeedback to keep the patient motivated to do the exercise practice with those that were designed in the form of challenging games. They are suitable for a wide variety of other neurological and orthopedic injuries and diseases as well as post trauma and orthopedic surgery.
The LEGTUTOR is also used by physical and occupational therapists in combination with the HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR and 3DTUTOR for upper and lower extremity rehabilitation. The TUTOR system of rehabilitation products is used by many leading physical therapy centers worldwide and has full FDA and CE certification. It is designed for children and adults and can be used at home supported by telerehabilitation. See WWW.MEDITOUCH.CO.IL for more information.
