Victhom Human Bionics was founded in 2002 in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Canada. The company’s Neurobionix business unit develops its implantable closed-loop system devices.
The Neurostep® is a neurostimulator designed to be implanted into the patient’s leg. Electrodes are attached to the peripheral nerves responsible for sensing and stimulating the muscles that lift the foot during normal walking. In operation, the device senses key physical events and stimulates the muscles of the ankle flexing the foot upward in patients suffering from foot drop.
