with peripheral neuropathy who have gait and balance impairments.

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.

Walkasins® Sensory Neuroprosthesis detects foot pressure then non-invasively delivers balance information to the nervous system.

The device consists of a Leg Unit attached around the ankle and a Foot Pad, which is inserted under the user’s foot in their shoe.

Changes in front-to-back and side-to-side pressures under the foot detected by the Foot Pad are processed within the electronics of the Leg Unit.


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.
