LE SLING - The Original (and only) Lower Extremity Leg Sling


The LE Sling works by reducing the workload of the lower extremity musculature in the gait cycle.  It does this by providing a bungee-assisted, pulling motion when one is in the terminal stance/push off phase of the gait cycle. This allows for the affected lower extremity to be more supported and to do less work, which will create less translational friction in the hip, knee, and ankle joints.
