The evomove® is a medical device for people with walking restrictions. It activates muscles in the lower leg with electrical impulses and improves the walking movement in combination with an orthosis. Use the evomove® together with an orthosis and benefit from the advantages of both concepts: Activation of the body's own structures and external stabilization.
With functional electrical stimulation, your muscles can be activated while walking. For example, you can better control your knee and/or actively use your muscles for forward movement and a more dynamic, natural gait. This promises many advantages. An orthosis holds, stabilizes and guides the lower leg and foot during walking and standing and can support foot lifting.
The stimulation later on in the gait phase supports the initiation of knee flexion and ensures improved forward movement of the leg (push-off).
The use of the evomove® in combination with orthoses ensures the development of a more natural and safe gait pattern and provides a reduction in the risk of falling.
A more natural and better gait pattern creates an extension of the walking distance and mobility.
The evomove® is operated very simply and intuitively via an app. This affects the configuration of the system by the specialist house as well as the later control of the patient for the setting of daily form-dependent stimulation.
In the early stance phase, stimulation of the triceps surae muscle prevents hyperextension in the knee.
