Our Unique Offering
With the ability to capture and analyze the full spectrum of natural movements, and the potential to track multiple subjects simultaneously, Stepscan enhances virtual training simulations by providing untethered movement and continuous tracking. The result is a more immersive virtual environment that provides crucial biometric data such as the speed and reaction time of subjects, subject positioning and stance during engagement, and team coordination during maneuvers.
Stepscan Technologies was kick-started in 2012 with the award of a $1.4 M Atlantic Innovation Award to build a pressure sensitive flooring system and software that tracks and analyzes how people walk. Today, Stepscan is a state-of-the-art computerized mobility assessment technology. Through the use of an innovative electronic, modular floor tile system with proprietary software, Stepscan’s technology tracks patterns in gait and balance as subjects move across the floor.
Stepscan is trusted by some of the world’s most prestigious healthcare and research institutions including the Royal Children’s Hospital (Melbourne Australia), the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Affairs Canada, the University of California, University of Massachusetts - Amherst, and University of New Brunswick.
The technology has multiple additional applications in verticals including sports performance assessments, military training and virtual simulation, and security applications.
Stepscan Users say they love the system because it is versatile, user-friendly, and made to meet the highest quality standards. Stepscan is the only medical plantar pressure measurement device in North America engineered to meet the technical requirements and performance standards developed by the International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics (i-FAB) Community’s Pedobarographic Group and is approved as a Class I medical device by U.S. FDA and Health Canada.

How Stepscan is Impacting Virtual Military Training
Through its sophisticated footprint analytic software and proprietary sensor floor technology, Stepscan supports biomechanical profiling in virtual training environments.
Training Input Device
As an input device, Stepscan pressure sensitive floor tiles (combined with our proprietary footprint detection and classification algorithms) allow trainees to interact with and control the simulated environment through their walking patterns.
Detailed Biometric Feedback
Stepscan can measure a subject’s reaction time, foot position or stance, and coordinate movement in the training space - all while allowing unprecedented freedom of movement during virtual training scenarios.
For example, a single Stepscan tile may be used to assess trainees' postural stability during annual weapons training. A multi-tile Stepscan platform may be used to track and analyze trainees' movements and reactions during constructive, virtual simulations.
