Background. Stimulators applying functional electrical stimulation (FES) to the common peroneal nerve improve walking with a foot drop, which occurs in several disorders. Objective. To compare the orthotic and therapeutic effects of a foot drop stimulator on walking performance of subjects with chronic nonprogressive (eg, stroke) and progressive (eg, multiple sclerosis) disorders. Methods . Subjects with nonprogressive (41) and progressive (32) conditions used a foot drop stimulator for 3 to 12… Expand
