NexStride Gets You Moving

Restore Brain Body Connection

You fall because the connection between your brain and body doesn’t work like it used to. NexStride uses light and sound signals to “rewire” your brain-body connection, so you can walk with confidence again.

Regain Your Independence

Don’t let instability, unsteadiness or fear strip you of your independence. NexStride will coach you to walk better and will be there when you need it, “lighting” the way back to a more independent life. [It may sound impossible, but getting back to your prior level of function has been done by people like you when they started using NexStride!]

Reduce Your Risk of Falling

It is common to feel fear after a fall. You may go from participating in your normal activities to being limited or dependent on others. NexStride goes with you on your walker, cane or walking poles and is available with the touch of a button to help your brain and body stay connected and reduce the risk of falling.

“I just wanted to let you know how much I love my NexStride! It has saved me numerous times from falling, I just can’t tell you! I am stuck in the hallway at home unable to move until I turn on my ‘clicker’ and off I go!”
– Pat Grisetti

How NexStride Works

Audible Metronome

Audible Metronome

NexStride’s metronome emits an audible signal, engaging a different pathway in your brain to enable you to move forward.

Visual Laser

Visual Laser Line

In addition to audible external signaling, NexStride uses visual external signaling by way of a laser signal that shows you where to step, giving your brain a target to focus on and a new way to engage with the body (this can also help correct stride issues). 

Attachable to any cane

Attachable to Any Cane, Walker, or Trekking Poles

NexStride was designed to be easily attached to almost any assistive walking device. Attach it to your cane, walker, or trekking poles, and watch yourself move…(It may seem miraculous, but it’s all science!)

Walter D — back in the great outdoors thanks to NexStride

NexStride testimonial - Barbara K


“NexStride really gives me a lot of confidence.
I took a walk on the beach, and I could set this consistent speed with my stride, with the metronome sound. It was delightful.”

Barbara K.

NexStride testimonial - Earl S


The first time I used NexStride, it was amazing. The laser light went on and it was like a ‘go’ signal – I just stepped over it.
Your independence is back. A little bit back… but it’s back!”

Step Easier with NexStride

You can use the NexStride on-demand (by pressing the controller during an episode of freezing) or continuously to prevent walking difficulties. Start by choosing one of the types of signals (either the laser light or the metronome beeping):

  • If you start with the laser light, see if you can start walking with larger steps with the goal of stepping over or toward the laser light.
  • If you start with the metronome, see if you can take each step to the sound of the beeping.

NexStride: Born from A Friendship Between a Biomedical Engineer and A Veteran

Jack Brill, an American veteran with Parkinson’s Disease, had used external signals in his physical therapy sessions and found them to be extremely helpful in conquering his walking difficulties. Sidney Collin, a biomedical engineer, met Jack and wanted to help make these signals accessible to him in his home. The two came together to brainstorm solutions, and the NexStride was born.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

NexStride allows your brain and your body to reconnect — to successfully transmit movement commands to the body, and translate those commands into action. Using specific visual and audio cues, NexStride allows the brain to switch from automatic commands to intention-based, or goal-oriented, commands.It’s long been known that cueing like this lets the brain form intentions, and that these intention commands use alternate, functioning neural pathways to send movement messages down to your body.The instant those messages reach their target, your body’s nervous system responds with the expected movement.
