"Mobility is the litmus test for healthy aging"
Stepscan® is a state-of-the-art computerized mobility assessment technology. Through the use of a groundbreaking electronic, modular floor tile system with proprietary software, Stepscan’s innovative technology tracks patterns of walking and balance as subjects move across the floor.
Accidental falls are a significant problem in today's healthcare industry. They negatively affect both residents’ quality of life, and facilities' operational costs, reputation and liability exposure.
The Stepscan mobility assessment tool captures and analyzes the irregularities in gait and balance, quickly and reliably identifying high risk fallers. Based on research collected from over 3,600 subjects, the Stepscan Fall Risk Score is an evidence-based measurement that can be used in conjunction with established fall-risk intervention strategies to reduce the number of falls within your facility.
If you are looking for a strategy to enhance the quality of your operation in relation to patient safety and quality of care, Stepscan® can help.
Questions To Ask When Considering the Purchase of New Medical Technology for Your Clinic
We are seeing an extraordinary rise in the use of technology in clinics. New tools for screening and assessing patients, or tools for managing workloads and streamlining record keeping are just a few. Whatever your pain point is, there is probably a product on the market that could help alleviate your clinic's challenges.
When you are evaluating a purchase, like most business managers, you are probably asking questions about features, pricing and return on investment. These are all very important variables to the person (or people) responsible for clinical efficiency and fiscal health of a business.
But when considering the introduction of a new biomedical device into your facility, there is an extra set of responsibilities (and therefore, decision factors) that should be a part of your decision-making process.
