The continuous gait monitoring technology from Stepscan Technologies Inc is a game-changer for senior care. Using Bluetooth technology to identify seniors walking on smart, pressure-sensitive tiles, the system enables continuous gait monitoring of multiple individuals with personalized care based on their gait data.
Falls among seniors are a serious concern, often leading to severe injuries and hospitalization, and gait abnormalities are a primary risk factor. The innovative technology utilizes Bluetooth technology and smart, pressure-sensitive tiles to collect gait data and identify seniors as they walk. Continuous monitoring mode, trend analysis, and Bluetooth beacon signal recording enable healthcare providers to monitor seniors' gait data in real-time and detect any potential issues before they become more serious. By providing personalized care based on gait data, healthcare providers can improve patient outcomes and ensure seniors receive timely interventions to reduce their risk of falling.
"We are absolutely thrilled to introduce our Bluetooth-enabled continuous gait monitoring system for long term care. This revolutionary technology marks a significant advancement in senior care, allowing healthcare providers to monitor gait data in real-time and provide timely interventions to reduce the risk of falls among seniors. We believe our system will fundamentally change the way fall prevention is managed in long-term care facilities, and we are pleased to offer a solution that improves patient outcomes and safety." Said Crystal Trevors, CEO and Founder of Stepscan Technologies Inc.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among adults aged 65 and over, and over 800,000 seniors are hospitalized annually due to fall-related injuries, with falls accounting for more than $30 billion in direct medical expenses each year in the United States. These statistics highlight the critical need for continuous gait monitoring in seniors to prevent falls and improve patient outcomes in long-term care facilities.
