At last! A Remarkable Breakthrough for Parkinson's Disease Freezing: The GaitAid Virtual Walker
Date:8/23/2009

inson's disease with the GaitAid">GaitAid device was developed to provide the benefits of this treatment strategy while solving these problems. It provides easy to use state of the art technology to display these cues through special glasses. The device provides cues which are automatically appropriate for each step taken no matter how big or fast. It is like having an expert physical therapist at your disposal drawing the cue needed for your next step just where it needs to be. In addition, clinical research has shown that, by providing separate cues for each foot as provided by the GaitAid, the improvement is two fold what was achieved by the transverse lines (same for both feet) strategy.

The GaitAid is the first device to offer a lasting improvement in walking as opposed to other devices on the market targeting FOG. With the GaitAid, one has the opportunity to train and improve so that later improved walking is possible without the device.

Following two months of his wife's training with the GaitAid, Dan Crace from Hamilton, Alabama reported: "Jeannes freezups are almost non existant now, with only an occasional occurrance if she is over tired or walking in a crowd, and her shuffle has improved to a steady gait. This appears to be a lasting effect and I see no signs of regression between training periods. With her new improvements Jeanne is much more confident and more involved in our social activities which involves playing mountain music. Yesterday she mentioned trying to play the fiddle again."

Clinical studies with the GaitAid have shown the device to be as effective as drugs and surgery with the effects often lasting for several days after practice.
The GaitAid is available for a 30 day trial period from MediGait's website:
