What is WALK?WALK is a wearble mobility aid for those with gait difficulties due to Parkinson's Disease. It reduces the chance of falling and improves movement while walking.
What does WALK look like?WALK is a fabric band that is worn on the lower thigh. It wraps around the leg and is held in place by hook and loop fastners (also sometimes known as Velcro). WALK may be worn on the thigh under regular attire, or over trousers as well. The band is sleek and will not show on the outside.
Who can use WALK?WALK was primarily designed for individuals with Parkinson's Disease having gait difficulties such as freezing of gait, bradykinesia. There is evidence that similar therapy may be useful in many other neurological conditions. The scientific principle behind WALK, sensory cuing, is applicable to everyone. Even healthy elders can benefit from using WALK.
How does WALK work? What is the science behind it?WALK uses the scientific principle of sensory cueing. 'Cueing' is the process of giving regular rhythmic stimulus. For example, the beat of a song or the 'left-right-left' call in a march are cues. In Parkinson's Disease, gait is affected and symptoms such as slow movement (bradykinesia), no movement (akinesia) and freezing of gait cause unsteadiness and may lead to falls. Individuals who initiate their movements based on cues are able to better overcome these symptoms. Sensory cueing is scientifically proven and rigourously tested over the past two decades. WALK cues the user through gentle vibrations, to which they align their footsteps. As seen in our demo videos, this significantly reduces freezing and improves gait. Optionally, users may also use wireless earphones for auditory cueing.
Is WALK visible or audible from the outside?No. WALK is designed to be discreet. Only the wearer will perceive the cueing. You can safely wear WALK indoors or outdoors without worrying about disturbance or attracting undue attention.
How much does WALK cost?WALK is scheduled for launch in March 2023. The pricing will be available soon
Who should be cautious when using WALK?Individuals with multiple co-mobidities that make them prone to excessive falls should only use WALK under supervision and after consulting their physician.
Do I need a prescription to use WALK?Yes. You need to consult your physician before buying WALK.
