    Hello, it is our vision to have this technology be available to users and people with PD. At this time, we are in the early phase of testing and investigation on how this might be useful to more people with PD with different walking presentations and Freezing characteristics. We want to make sure that this robotic system has compelling benefits to more people with PD before we commercialize. Our team has experience and success in commercializing robotics from our previous work in Stroke – and we will leverage similar pipelines for commercialization for the robotic apparel for freezing of gait in PD.
