MStim Drop LGT-233 is a wearable FES device for treating foot drop caused by MS, stroke, and severe injuries. It applies low-frequency electrical impulses to weak, damaged, or paralyzed muscles to make muscles contract again, which can help patients move again, improve muscle strength and flexibility, and prevent atrophy effectively.
This FES machine is mainly designed for foot drop patients to walk more naturally and live more independently. With training mode and walking mode, it can highly meet all needs of foot drop treatment.
Compared with AFO which mechanically lifts your foot, the FES device provides low-frequency electrical pulses to stimulate the peroneal nerve, which causes the muscle to contract and enables the normally lift the foot. The stimulation can also improve your muscle strength, and flexibility and prevent atrophy. But if your peripheral nerves are damaged, the device may not work to help restore mobility.
You can adjust the specific parameters of the FES machine to get your most comfortable and effective treatment experience and it allows you to save this protocol for the next quick therapy.
Our foot drop stimulator MStim Drop LGT-233 only is small with dimensions of 59(L) × 59(W) × 22(H) mm and weighs only 60g, making it easier to use and giving no burden for patients while walking. The patient can easily wear the device in a cuff below the knee.
The most striking feature of Our MStim Drop LGT-233 is that it has a built-in sensor to detect valid gait events, provide precise stimulation to help clear the foot and measure how far you’ve walked.
Download GZ Longest APP “MStim Drop,” from APP stores, and enable Bluetooth to connect with our FES device to get more intuitive and accurate operation. And you can monitor changes in walking angle every moment and see how far you’ve walked.

This foot drop stimulator is built with a rechargeable battery that lasts more than 4 hours on a single charge. As there is less need to replace batteries, it’s more cost-saving and more environmentally friendly.
Training mode is the transition from passive training to walking training for patients who are unable to perform active training. This mode can be selected for muscle training while sitting or lying down, to accelerate muscle recovery, slow atrophy of the injured calf, maintain and improve range of motion in the ankle, and enhance local blood circulation.
Walking mode refers to electrical stimulation for foot drop while walking to restore neuromotor function. It can help to maintain a normal gait when walking. Stimulation during walking and repeated training will leave traces on the cerebral cortex. At the same time, it will give feedback to the central nervous system and restore brain neuromotor function.
1. What is FES?
Functional Electrical Stimulation, or FES, is a method of externally controlling muscles when signals from the brain can no longer control movement. This can happen after a spinal cord injury, stroke, or neurological disease such as Multiple Sclerosis. FES improves the quality of life for patients with neurological disabilities across the globe. The most common application for FES is the correction of dropped foot. Stimulation is applied to the outside of the leg using self-adhesive electrodes, causing the muscle to contract and the foot to lift; select the image to expand.
2. Why should you choose MStim Drop LGT-233?
Actually, it is a potential market for foot drop. Walking impairment is one of the most common dysfunctions that affect the ability to perform activities of daily living in stroke patients. More than 70% of hemiplegic patients can regain walking ability, but most of them do not achieve good gait and walking speed, which becomes the biggest cause of future falls. Lower extremity motor dysfunction is one of the more serious factors affecting the activities of daily living in stroke patients. Patients with stroke are prone to abnormal gait during walking due to reduced motor muscle strength, poor control, and muscle spasm, increasing the risk of balance disorders and falls.
3. How many treatment sessions could cure the indications?
It varies from the severity of the patient and should be confirmed by the professional therapist.
