Seeing the NexStride work for the very first time in person was incredibly inspiring. Witnessing someone go from frozen to walking at the press of a button and knowing that I played a small role in that is one of the most gratifying moments of my life.


Helping people defeat freezing, one step at a time.

Easy to use and even easier to love, NexStride’s adaptive design seamlessly integrates into your favorite cane, walker, or walking poles. Activate the audio cue, visual cue, or both when you want them, adjust to your preferred speed and distance, and press on through the Freezing of Gait. Buy your NexStride now.
