Stepscan releases Software Version 2.2 with concussion module and rapid report development capabilities


CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – (July 3, 2018) –Stepscan Technologies recently released Version 2.2 of their Stepscan® Gait Analysis Software. This newest version features several break-through upgrades that further advance the Stepscan® system’s competitive advantage.

The first major new feature of Stepscan® 2.2 is a concussion analysis module. Previously, Stepscan had automated reports for gait analysis and balance assessments. Stepscan’s new concussion module records a person’s underfoot pressure as they complete a Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) test. It combines this score with sway velocity and standard deviation to provide a more finely resolved balance score report. This is a useful tool for vestibular specialists. The module is available as an additional, automated report to both new and existing Stepscan customers.

Also included in the Version 2.2 release is the implementation of a new architecture that allows the quick development of custom reports and protocols derived from gait or balance.  Notably, these can include multiple recordings in a single patient session (utilized in the new concussion module). This is an exciting advancement for researchers and clinicians who are seeking to highlight certain statistics or report a specific protocol. Stepscan’s engineers will be able to rapidly build reports tailor-made to meet customers’ data needs.

These changes, made possible by Stepscan’s talented engineers, help the firm continue to exceed customer expectations and advance the capabilities of gait analysis technologies.
