NexStride began with a Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo project. 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 that it is intuitive to use and blends seamlessly into daily life, ensuring optimal impact with minimal intrusion.
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.
