Fes working great ( but what to do with wires)

Hi all just got my F E S for my foot drop which works really well but has anyone got any ideas about what to do with the wires. especially now that I’m going to Spain on my holidays in a couple of weeks and wires don’t go well with shorts.

Hi, I am pleased your FES is working well for you. When I had long wires with mine I used a light tubular bandage which covered the electrodes and seemed to keep the wires in check and a bit more manageable. I also wore wider leg, light fabric trousers rather than shorts. I now wear the FES box just below my knee with short wires. Hope you enjoy your holiday. Best wishes, JanJan
