NexStride began as a project at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo.
Challenged to create a tool that would alleviate and prevent freezing of gait in a local veteran, our simple prototype gave him much needed relief. We soon realized the global potential for our product.
Our team at De Oro Devices has spent countless hours researching and refining NexStride so it is intuitive to use and blends seamlessly into daily life, ensuring optimal impact with minimal intrusion.
Since creating NexStride, we've been recognized for our work to restore mobility, relieve anxiety, and help people living with Parkinson’s Disease retain their independence.

A single step can be vital and we’re honored to help you take it.
A cue is an audio, visual or audio-visual signal that helps a Parkinson's patient re-establish a connection with neural pathways and helps treat the symptom of Freezing of Gait (FoG). The treatment of FoG could offer a breakthrough in helping people with Parkinson’s recover their independence, restore their motor ability, and increase confidence. Sensory and auditory cueing could be the key to assisting people from experiencing this debilitating symptom.
