Do you have a leaning forward posture, a shuffling gait or a mobility stiffness issue?
Are you able to walk without the use of prescription glasses?
Is your mobility issues solely connected to your Parkinson’s?
If you answered yes to these questions then there is a very good chance that our Strydar Glasses can help you, and we would like to make you this limited offer for a “3-week Risk Free Trial”
You will have three weeks where you will NOT be charged anything, this is to allow you time to decide whether the glasses are helping you or not.
If you decide the glasses are NOT helping, simple let us know and send them back in the packaging provided, send them back within the free trial period, and on receipt of the glasses we will happily cancel your subscription before any money has left your account.

Our glasses are designed to assist people with neurological movement disorders caused by diseases like Parkinson’s. Our aim is to make daily life for people who struggle with their mobility a little bit easier.
The main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are:
Slowness of movement
Freezing of Gait (FOG) – when the person can’t move and feels like they are stuck to the floor
Treatments for Parkinson’s disease include therapies to help with movement problems, physical activity, medicines, and sometimes brain surgery.
A person with Parkinson’s disease can also experience a wide range of other physical and psychological symptoms. These include depression and anxiety, balance problems, loss of sense of smell, memory problems, insomnia, and constipation.
Our product is a non-invasive, non-medical solution that addresses the symptoms of muscle stiffness, shuffling walk, slowness of movement, and freezing of gait by instantly improving posture, balance, and mobility.
Visual cueing is a method that has been used in physiotherapy clinics all over the world for decades. It involves marking out a pathway on the floor in front of the patient using “markers” such as lines of tape or pieces of paper, and when the patient walks over these markers, they display an instant improvement in stride length and speed.
What exactly is happening here?
Flexible Motor Control is controlled by the Basal Ganglia, which in turn, is fuelled by Dopamine. People with Parkinson’s lose the ability to create dopamine, which is the cause of their mobility symptoms.
Visual cueing works by bypassing the impaired basal ganglia and sending a signal directly to the motor cortex, which instantly improves mobility.
This video inspired us to work on Visual Cueing Glasses
StrydAR Parkinson Glasses have been developed as a Visual Cueing Mobility Device to aid the mobility of people who live with Parkinson’s.
By projecting an “Augmented Marker” into a specific part of the user’s field of view, then using a process called “Focused to Infinity”, the visual cue is displayed as a hologram that appears 3 meters in front of the wearer in a specific area of their field of view, instantly improving the posture, balance, and mobility of most people.
Many people with Parkinson’s are extremely self-conscious of their condition, which ends up in them becoming insular, staying at home, and isolating themselves away from their community, which not only speeds up the progression of the disease but also removes their independence and puts responsibilities and pressure on their family members.
Remaining undetected is a particular benefit that is especially meaningful to the Parkinson’s community. That’s why we have designed our glasses to be practically indistinguishable from a pair of ordinary sunglasses, allowing the wearer to walk around in public without their disability being detected.
Our Glasses will be the first on the market to provide a versatile and effective means of delivering visual cues both inside and outside of the home. Giving people the opportunity to walk and exercise outside allows them to live a more independent and meaningful life.
Wearing the glasses will reduce incidents of falling and greatly improve independence, quality of life, physical activity, social interaction, mental health, mood, and even cognitive function.
Meet Eddie and Margaret
We recently completed an academic independent pilot study with Robert Gordons University of Aberdeen.
Through RGU’s academic contacts, people with Parkinson’s were invited to the Human Performance Laboratory at RGU where they underwent a clinical gait assessment.
Participants represented a broad age range and time since diagnosis.
The pilot study involved assessing participants’ gait using measures commonly used in clinical practice as well as capturing their walking using 3D motion capture technology. Participants completed a number of walking trails, including a function walking circuit, involving inclines, declines, turning, and a doorway, without the glasses, prior to these trials being repeated while wearing the StryAR glasses.
Participants were then provided with the glasses to trial at home for two weeks. Participants were asked to wear the glasses for a minimum of 20 minutes per day and keep a diary of their experiences. Gait was then re-evaluated 2 weeks later.
“A small pre-pilot study was carried out by RGU University, involving people with Parkinson’s. Participants’ walking was assessed with and without glasses, and then they were assessed two weeks later. 5 of the 7 participants reported perceived improvements, which included improved stability, confidence, balance, and reduced cognitive load associated with walking. “

Questions & Answers
How long should I wear the glasses?
For the first few days we recommend that you only wear the glasses two sessions per day for no more than 30 minutes per session and sessions should be Morning, Late Afternoon or Early Evening. This will allow you to get used to wearing the glasses and give us some baseline data to help coach you on your further usage.
When should I wear the glasses?
You should wear the glasses when you are mobile, and it’s helpful if you carry out light energetic tasks such as – walking around the house and garden, carrying out household tasks, using an exercise machine such as a stationary bike or treadmill, etc..
How do I turn on the Glasses?
Put the glasses on, so that they are firmly against the top bridge of your nose, then lightly press your finger against the bridge part of the glasses (in the middle between the two lenses) keep your finger pressed down for 4 seconds until you see the digital image appear in the right lens of the glasses.
What should I see when the glasses are on?
You will see a green horizontal Yellow line, this should appear in your right eye. If you do not see this line you will need to adjust the glasses until the line becomes visible, refer to the user guide that comes with the glasses.
Do I need to focus my attention on the yellow line at all times?
No, it is not necessary for you to remain focused on the Yellow line (visual cue) once you start to move around it is okay for you to forget all about the Yellow line. Your brain is still very aware that the line is there even though you are not focusing on it.
What if I depend on a mobility walking frame?
To get the full potential of the glasses we recommend that you safely practice using the glasses without your walking frame using a walking stick instead if required, gradually using your walking frame less and less.
How will I know when I can wear the glasses for longer periods?
Once you become confident wearing the glasses, you and your StrydAR Coach will work together to find a Daily Usage that works best for you, such as increasing the number of daily sessions and wearing the glasses for longer or for shorter periods per session.
What if I wear prescription glasses?
The Parkinson’s Walking Glasses do not currently come with a prescription lens option, so a patient will need to remove their glasses before putting on the Parkinson’s glasses. They should give their eyes time to adjust.
Will I get dizzy wearing the glasses?
Some wearers report that they have a feeling of motion sickness, but this will soon pass. It is caused by the fluid in the inner ear adjusting to the body’s new alignment.
