Stanford Movement Disorders Center Events


You're invited to SPRING into action to support the launch of the Stanford Parkinson's Research in Neuromodulation for Gait Study Kick-off Meeting!

The Stanford Parkinson's Research In Neuromodulation for Gait study is the first study to investigate the safety and feasibility of closed loop deep brain stimulation for impaired gait and freezing of gait in Parkinson's disease.  The success of this study will advance patient-specific, responsive neuromodulation and will improve quality of life for people living with Parkinson's disease.
