Hi Imad and GerryW, to understand a bit more, always in the same newspaper, look at:
FMS, a distinguished former
In 2008 the U.S. developed a device capable of improving posture and gait in the absence of gravity
The FMS has had an illustrious precedent: in 2008 a group of neurophysiologists directed by Charles Layne of the University of Houston in Texas published in the journal Aviation, Space and Environmental Medicine, a study which showed that applying a dynamic plantar stimulation both feet activates the muscles of the leg without the need to stimulate it or expose it directly to the gravitational stress as when we walk on Earth. American researchers have developed a device called DFS stands for Dynamic Foot Stimulation, ie dynamic plantar stimulation, capable of improving posture and gait in the absence of gravity or gravity decreased as happens on Mars or the Moon.
FMS, here's how to use the equipment
It is a sort of technological insole; it has no side effects or interfere with any drug therapy is in place
After a first personalized adjustment carried out by specialized personnel, the device with which treatment is performed at FMS which has the shape of a base Dutch can be used directly by patients at home, fitted as a sort of plantar technology. It has no side effects or interfere with any other drug is in place or any other implantable device used in this disease as stimulators DBS (deep brain stimulation, deep brain stimulation that is), VNS (vagal nerve stimulation, ie vagal stimulation). It is portable and can be housed in a special carrying case that weighs less than 5 kilos and measures less than those of an airplane cabin trolley. It is powered by rechargeable batteries that use a week, have a term exceeding one year. The benefits of treatment may occur immediately, keep it up to 7 days after application, increasing progressively from session to session. After the initial setup, to be carried out according to the characteristics of individual patients in a specialized center, the unit can be conveniently used at home, independently or with the mere assistance of a family member. During treatment the patient is lying down. The stimulation lasts about 2 minutes and the total time required is about ten minutes, including time to wear the device. In most cases, the treatment is repeated weekly, which may however vary depending on the needs of the individual patient.
