E-step Taster Day at Hobbs Rehabilitation

DM Orthotics recently held its first E-step Taster Day at Hobbs Rehabilitation, Winchester. The session was led by DM Orthotics Clinical Manger, Patricia McCotter supported by DM Orthotics Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist Liz Betts and DM Orthotics Biomedical Researcher Rod Lane.

The E-step Taster Day was attended by 20 members of the Hobbs Rehabilitation team and provided them with a comprehensive insight to DMO’s and the E-step FES system.

The day’s events consisted of: an introduction to Dynamic Elastomeric Fabric Orthoses; a summary of the uses of Functional Electrical Stimulation; E-step product review and the benefits of combining the DMO Sock with an FES system; explanation of the XFT stimulator and Flexitrode®.

A patient demonstration was also given which allowed the Hobbs delegates to see the effects of the E-step in working practice.

DM Orthotics Clinical Manager, Patricia McCotter commented,
““We had a great day at Hobbs Rehabilitation. The session was very interactive and prompted a lot of MDT discussion on treatment prescriptions/modalities. We look forward to setting up further training sessions on our DEFOs and arranging an E-Step joint assessment clinic”

Susanne Pender of Hobbs Rehabilitation commented on the day,
“I just want to say a big thank you on behalf of the Hobbs team for your interesting demo. I think the E step could have great potential in the clinical setting.”
