Abstract

Electrical stimulation (ES) can be used to correct foot drop and toe drag during hemiplegic walking. This study designed to make potable electrical stimulation system according to correct foot drop of hemiplegic walking. A right hemiplegic patient was participated and electrical stimulator was mounted on the motor point of the tibialis anterior (TA) of hemiplegic patient. In order to validate the use of this system, we performed gait analysis of hemiplegic walking with and without electrical stimulation. A potable electrical stimulation system could correct the drag foot successfully.
