Medical Devices That Improve Life For Children With Cerebral Palsy

Children with cerebral palsy face serious obstacles, but several medical devices are providing some of these children with improved mobility. These medical devices use electrical impulses to help people with cerebral palsy move their legs better.

The WalkAide helps people suffering from partial paralysis or weakness in their lower leg, manifesting in what is commonly described as "foot drop." The device helps combat foot drop by sending electrical stimulation into the leg, improving the ankle's functioning. The WalkAide sends impulses at the correct time by using technology found in video game systems.

The WalkAide and similar devices help some children and adults with cerebral palsy enjoy a better life. Unfortunately, medical technology is extremely expensive and unaffordable for many. When a child's cerebral palsy condition is the result of medical negligence, parents often have no choice but to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit to recover damages.

A damage award can cover the cost of a lifetime's worth of medical treatment for the victim. If your child developed cerebral palsy because of a hospital's negligence, contact an experienced Ohio birth injury attorney to discuss your legal rights to compensation.
