gaitQ tempo™ is a discreet vibrational cueing system to help people with Parkinson’s to maintain a more fluid and stable gait. It applies a vibrational prompt (a ‘cue‘) delivered via a discreet wearable device worn on the lower legs — an intuitive location for gait cueing.
The core component of gaitQ tempo™ is the Pod. Designed to be worn on the leg, the Pod can be placed under clothing, allowing you to keep any walking issues private. The Pod is secured to the leg using a strap, providing a comfortable and secure fit.
The Pod uses vibrational sensory cues to prompt the user to walk more smoothly and overcome freezing episodes, a common motor symptom of Parkinson’s. The vibrational cues are applied directly to the leg, providing subtle and gentle prompts to encourage a more regular pace of walking.
