What started as a project at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, today, helps Parkinson's patients take confident strides in everyday life.

At Nexstride, our purpose drives us. Our founder, Sidney Collin, began her project based on one veteran Parkinson's patient's pain-points — freezing of gait (FoG). The initial prototype of the mobility device brought tremendous relief and made walking easier than before. Sidney then knew that the product she was designing had greater potential and could help other Parkinson's patients trembling in their steps to take the next step. This realization marked the beginning of De Oro Devices — the parent company of NexStride.

Our team then began pouring hours and hours of work refining today's NexStride. Our efforts have been recognized at various conferences and competitions, which only boosts our morale and lifts us to better the mobility device for our customers and all patients who experience Freezing of gait or Parkinsonian gait. 


Some of the awards that recognized NexStride and our efforts are:


BIOMEDevice Startup Pitch Competition

We won first place at the 2019 BIOMEDevice StartUp Pitch Competition. This is our more recent win and we’re so proud of it.
