Yesterday I went to the NHNN in |Queen Square to be fitted for my FES. It seemed to work well, as it had done on my previous visit, where I had a ‘trial’ of the device.
So today I put it on as instructed. Off I went to the hairdresser for a haircut and colour. While there I went to the loo. And the wires seemed to get tangled up. Then when I went to pay there were more problems with something coming off and dragging on the ground.
When I got home I was so irritated that I took it off. The thing is that I know it would help but the wires absolutely drove me mad, and the sticky pads even more so - like some irritating childrens’ toy that sticks to everything else.
I have an appointment next week to report on it. I know I’ll have to try again before then, but honestly, the wretched wires…I know that some of you have given very positive reports on their FES and I know I’m being a wuss, but still…
I was just wondering whether anyone has experience of the Trulife Walkaide or Bioness L300G? I realise that these are private and probably very expensive. It’s just that the idea of a device without wires seems ideal.
