Track and improve your patient's walker usage using StrideTech Go, 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 Go 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 Go 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.
Attachable in minutes on almost any walker, StrideTech Go detects body position and weight bearing on a walker frame. When unsafe behaviors are detected, such as placing too much weight through the walker handles or pushing the walker too far away, vibration and visual feedback are immediately triggered. This feedback encourages safe walking behavior, improvements in posture, and reduction of falls due to incorrect walker use.
Give peace of mind and independence for older adults who use walkers and their families with StrideTech Go.
