Introducing: Cueing

Although Parkinson’s Disease is a very involved neurological disease, latest research shows that physical therapy and external cues from technology like NexStride can significantly improve quality of life and overall mobility.5

Cueing helps relieve Parkinsonian gait (also known as Freezing of gait) symptoms; improving walking speed, step length, and the number of steps per minute. Studies have also shown that this treatment line helped reduce the number of freezing episodes in Parkinson's patients.
