What started as a project at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, today, helps Parkinson’s patients take confident strides in everyday life.
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.
Central Coast Angel Conference
Participating in Angel Conference was an invaluable experience. Winning the first prize gave necessary funding. Such an important win this one was!
At De Oro Devices, we build mobility solutions to empower those in need
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.
“The NexStride is working beautifully. She uses the word ‘amazing’. She is moving about as she hasn’t for a long time. I would describe it as transformative for us.”

How does cueing help?
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.
