The L300 Go system lifts your foot as you walk.
For users with diseases of the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis or infantile cerebral palsy, or who have had a stroke, the L300 Go stimulates the affected nerves and the muscles that they control. The system can therefore initiate dorsiflexion as well as knee flexion/extension. Three versions are available depending on your needs.
Ottobock Australia held the third instalment of LIMB-itless at Southern Cross University on the Gold Coast during the last weekend of October. LIMB-itless is an event targeted at amputees of all ages and activity levels as well as their carers, helpers and family members. It offers information and advice, on many areas of life as an amputee. This year there were sessions on accessing funding through the new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as well as how funding will work for those who are not eligible for the new scheme.
