Sidney Collin | NexStride - Creating the tools to keep people walking safely and confidently
De Oro Devices makes mobility assistive devices to allow people with mobility disorders to walk confidently and safely. We use research-backed sensory cues to help people with mobility disorders walk with improved step symmetry, step length, and overall safety and mobility. In our beachhead market, Parkinson's, we help overcome freezing of gait, one of the most common and most debilitating symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Our initial device, NexStride, combines a green laser line visual cue and a metronome auditory cue into a small portable device that can attach to any cane, walker, or walking pole.
These cues have been shown to reduce falls by 40% for people with Parkinson’s. This patent-pending technology can be used in Parkinson’s, Stroke Rehab, Multiple Sclerosis, and Cerebral Palsy, resulting in a $13B global market opportunity for our first product alone. NexStride is already available in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
