Track and improve your patient's walker usage using StrideTech Pro, an innovative walker attachment technology.
In an article published by Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, it was found that despite the benefits, habitually poor walker use, as marked by excessive weight on the walker handles and/or excessive distance between the user and the walker, can lead to muscle atrophy, poor posture, and falls. A later study published in Geriatrics and Gerontology International showed that over 87% of severe falls with an assistive device occurred with a walker. They recommended increased time devoted to fitting and education on proper use."
StrideTech easily attaches to any walker frame and detects incorrect walker use as described above. Instant vibration and visual feedback is provided through soft handle covers. Think of this feedback as a simple, subtle reminder to stand taller and closer to the walker frame. Utilize StrideTech Go as a training tool that goes home with your patients.
StrideTech connects to an app which remotely tracks patient data on their walker usage, activity, and posture. Individual patient profiles can be setup so that personalized settings can be adjusted for each patient.
