Cue2Walk is a wearable with sensors accompanied by app that can help with Parkinson’s patients freezing. Many Parkinson’s disease patients recognize the feeling that their feet seem to stick to the ground, called “freezing”. To get
moving again, an external stimulus is necessary. The sensors in a smartphone register when the patient is stationary or moving. As soon as Cue2Walk registers that a patient is experiencing freezing, the app emits a rhythmic vibration in
the wearable, so the patient can start walking again and more easily. NeLL investigates whether the freezing is recognized and predicted more quickly through this stimulation, thus reducing the risk of falling behavior and balance problems.
