There is an impeccable amount of research showing the efficacy behind the cues we use in the NexStride, but it still truly amazed me the first time I saw the first user try it out. It really changed the way he was able to live his life. For the first time in years, he was able to walk more than 10 feet by himself. He could get up and walk to another room or go to the restroom by himself, or even walk around the block. Freezing is incredibly debilitating, and we have a product that can make a real difference in people’s lives.
