Freeze of Gait Market Trends



  • Increasing prevalence of Parkinson’s disease and other related diseases


Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the central nervous system that causes unintended or uncontrollable movements, such as stiffness, shaking, and difficulty with coordination and balance. These symptoms generally begin slowly and worsen over time. This may result in difficulty walking and talking. Freezing of gait (FoG) is one of the most debilitating motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. Freezing of gait is an abnormal gait pattern that leads to a sudden inability to initiate or continue walking.


According to data published in Nature Journal, in the year 2022, FoG affected about 50% of Parkinson's disease patients and 80% of advanced Parkinson's disease patients. According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, currently around one million people in the US are living with Parkinson's disease (PD), and it is estimated that this number will rise to 1.2 million by 2030.
