Visual cues prevent freezing episodes.
Path Finder is a class 1 medical device. It is proven to alleviate freezing and help people with Parkinson's improve their gait. If your patients are experiencing freezing, Path Finder might be the solution for them.
Class 1 medical device
Alleviate freezing of gait.
The green laser lines help activate the motor cortex in the brain. The motor cortex is the pathway that has been affected by Parkinson's disease.
The cue helps the brain initiate the movement and so the green laser line can help to start walking again.
✔ 50% reduction in freezing
✔ 35% reduction in falls
✔ 93% increase in confidence
Gait rehabilitation often has a focus on increasing walking speed and normalising stride length to improve balance. Literature indicates visual cueing can facilitate these objectives, and improves walking speed in stroke rehabilitation by >10%. Following one to two sessions of visual cueing there are improvements in walking symmetry, balance and functional mobility in stroke rehabilitation.
