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.
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.
