StartGait is helping people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) move toward independence. We are developing wearable technology for those with gait disorders.
How Does it work?
Therapists and caregivers have long known that a visual cue, such as stripes on a floor, can help PD patients with shuffling gait or FOG. We are developing solutions that provide unobtrusive audio and visual cueing when needed to train and promote an active and independent lifestyle.
Research in Motion Trial
Starting in the Summer of 2018 we are conducting a clinical trial with Dr. Bryan Ho at Tufts Medical Center in Boston on the effect of laser cueing on PD related gait. If you have PD and would like to help us study the effect of cueing, please take a look at the trial info sheet and flyer. Many thanks!
