The problem with Walkers

Current walker training methods aren't working.

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."

  • Occasionally retraining patients on walker use doesn't instill safe habits
  • Increased re-admittance rates frustrate patients and their family
  • Time on retraining patients distracts from your Plan of Care
StrideTech Technology

Prevent falls caused by incorrect walker 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.

  • Reduce time spent on training/retraining walker usage
  • Improve patient engagement and satisfaction
  • One StrideTech Pro unit can be utilized with multiple patients

Improve insight and documentation with remote patient monitoring

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.

  • Monitor change in walker usage between visits to inform care
  • Give patients a boost of confidence through visual progress
  • Collect data that can be used as a streamlined Outcome Measure
  • Improve patient education and assistive device training
