Gait sensor for Parkinson’s patients could prevent falls

University of Alabama professor Emil Jovanov is developing a sensory cue device to detect freezing of gait episodes that lead to falls and serious injuries.  It uses sensors embedded in a shoe or attached to the ankle. As soon as the system senses a gait freeze, it transmits an auditory cue (such as the word “walk”) to an earpiece, prompting the patient to keep moving.
