What is the Parastep I™ System?

The Parastep I™ System comes from the medical engineering sciences known as neuroprosthetics. The Parastep I™ System is a microcomputer controlled functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) system that enables independent, unbraced ambulation (i.e., standing and walking) by people with a spinal cord injury.

The Parastep is a non-invasive system and consists of the following components:

  • a microcomputer controlled neuromuscular stimulation unit
  • a battery activated power pack with recharger
  • the Paratester, a unit for pretesting main system operation and electrode cables
  • surface applied skin electrodes
  • power and electrodes cables
  • a control and stability walker with finger activated control switches.
