Lower Limb Sensory Prosthesis

Balance and mobility for people with sensory peripheral neuropathy

How Walkasins Works

The Walkasins system is designed to serve as a prosthesis for the lost sensory nerve function from the plantar surface of the foot.

Neuropathy Device_Walkasins_Product Step 1

Lost foot sensation due to peripheral neuropathy causes unsteady walking, often leading to falls.

Walkasins® evaluates balance and delivers gentle sensory signals to functioning nerves around the lower leg.

This new sensory information is integrated by the brain to help replace lost foot sensation.

Balance and gait are improved, restoring mobility and confidence.

  • Clinically proven to improve balance and gait and reduce the risk of falls in people with peripheral neuropathy experiencing balance and mobility issues.
  • Replaces sensory nerve function, bypassing damaged nerves using an alternative channel for signaling lost plantar sensation.
  • Delivers non-invasive, tactile stimuli corresponding to real-time pressure changes during static and dynamic balance activities.
  • Restores sensory information related to foot contact with the ground which is transmitted to the nervous system.
  • Prescription device intended for long-term daily use.

The device provides gentle tactile signals to the front, back, left, and right surfaces of the user’s leg relaying balance information to a location above the ankle where skin sensation is still present.

The sensory information provided by Walkasins® replaces the sensory loss from peripheral neuropathy, and improves information to the nervous system which is critical for maintaining balance.
