Many people who live with Parkinson’s disease experience difficulties walking.
This experience is called freezing of gait (FOG) or freezing. Path Finder is a medical device that alleviates freezing.
Path Finder works because 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. This means that while you might freeze or feel stuck sometimes, you have not lost the ability to move. Instead it is simply difficult to start walking.
The cue helps the brain initiate your movement and so the green laser line can help you to start to walk again.
