Bioness Inc, Valencia, Calif, has received 510(K) clearance from the FDA to market its L300 Foot Drop System to pediatric patients and their caregivers. The L300 is a neuromodulation technology designed to treat foot drop and is the first neuromuscular stimulation device cleared by the FDA. The device is worn on the leg, and by lifting the foot at the appropriate time, a patient may be able to walk with increased confidence, reduced fatigue, and improved speed.
