Overcome Parkinson's Freezing of Gait, One Step at a Time
Austin, TX

Problem statement

Freezing of gait is the inability to take the next step due to a damaged neural pathway that carries out brain-to-body communication. Those living with Parkinson's describe feeling as if their feet are glued to the floor or planted in boxes of concrete. Freezing can manifest as trembling, shuffling of feet, or a complete inability to move and drastically increases the likelihood of a fall or injury among people with Parkinson's.

About company

The effect of sensory cues, and their ability to positively impact freezing episodes by re-establishing the connection between the brain and the body, has been studied since 1990. NexStride combines the most effective visual and audio cues in one compact device. Attach a NexStride to your favorite cane, walker, or walking poles to discreetly and unobtrusively help reduce the duration and frequency of freezing episodes.

A small device with massive power, NexStride, is the first multi-cue daily assist mobility device that attaches to any standard cane, walker, or walking pole. NexStride's power lies its ability to adjust to personal preferences. It enables individuals to find and set a comfortable pace and make quick and easy adjustments as they see fit.
