  • More information

    • Agilitas was developed after 5 years R&D, and has been tested on patients with Parkinson’s disease.  It has helped people like Clark Hoey: Agilitas is a visual cueing device which is automatic and tailored for individual users.
    • A wearable motion-sensing device, Agilitas uses a unique algorithm to automatically detect when the wearer starts to freeze.
    • The device then shines a red laser dot onto the ground, which provides a visual cue to the brain to break the freeze and allow the wearer to continue walking.
    • Patient tests held in Queensland, Australia, have shown visual cueing is a highly effective method of increasing the mobility of patients of Parkinsons Disease during freeze of gait episodes. Agilitas is small, discreet, easy-to-use, and clips on a belt or waistband.
    • Agilitas can be tailored to individual users, by adjusting the position of the laser light cue. As gait differs between different people,
    • Agilitas allows you to change the sensitivity with which it activates its automatic cues.
    • Agilitas operates in two modes: an automatic mode and a manual mode.
    • In automatic mode, the device detects shuffling and turns the laser dot on and off automatically.
    • Manual mode, where the user switches the laser on by “tapping” it twice on the side, is convenient for users when they are likely to suffer frequent episodes of freezing, such as walking around furniture at home.
