Improve Your Walking with Smart Muscle Stimulation

The EvoWalk device uses precisely timed muscle stimulation to rehabilitate walking form, prevent falls, and bring confidence back to your walking.
EvoWalk is the first Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) device that aims to use Artificial Intelligence to reliably track walking patterns and personalize stimulation.

Bringing Freedom of Mobility to Everyone

In early trials, the EvoWalk device has improved the walking form of Multiple Sclerosis patients, ALS patients and Stroke victims.
The EvoWalk aims to improve your walking speed, reduce fatigue and prevent you from tripping.

 
 

The Team


 
Pierluigi is a neuroscientist by training, holding a degree in cognitive science from UC Berkeley.  Prior to Evolution Devices, Pierluigi was a researcher at UCSF in the lab of neurosurgeon Dr. Chang, focusing on plasticity in the brain. Evolution Devices stems from his father’s battle with MS and foot drop, in which he found that an affordable FES device was nonexistent. Pierluigi also founded the NeuroTech Club at Berkeley, where all the co-founders met.
