Stepscan® is a tool for the assessment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from mobility impairing conditions (i.e. Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Arthritis, etc.), for basic gait research, for the fitting of orthotic/prosthetic devices, and in concussion/return-to-play decisions.
The Stepscan® system is comprised of innovative hardware and sophisticated software. 2-foot x 2-foot interlocking electronic floor tiles can be configured according to need – from a single tile to a full floor – creating an expandable, customizable measurement platform.
Stepscan® software reports critical parameters of gait, allowing baseline measures, level of impairment, and potential treatment options to be determined. It allows for quantitative measurement of the symmetry or asymmetry of a patient’s walking ability and balance.
Features & Benefits
Quality: Stepscan® is for professional use, a highly accurate technology engineered to meet international (i-FAB) standards, and approved as a Class I medical device by USFDA and Health Canada. Predetermined reports provide detailed statistics for the temporal and spatial parameters of gait, plantar pressure distributions (up to 1,500 kPa) foot/floor interactions and sway/balance for barefoot or shod patients.
Enhanced Time Efficiencies: Seamless data collection, automatic footprint detection, and pre-determined reports means Stepscan® assessments take 30% less time than other methods.
Evidence-Based Decisions: Objective measures allow comparative analysis of patient progress over time. Stepscan also compares a patient’s gait profile to those of healthy individuals and automatically flags asymmetries and statistics outside of the healthy ranges. These highlighted areas give clinicians actionable insights that enable them to determine appropriate treatment plans.
Patient & Clinician-Friendly: Stepscan® technology has proprietary footprint identification capabilities, meaning footprints are automatically classified as left or right, significantly reducing the post-processing required to generate reports. Stepscan® technology is unobtrusive – no markers, sensors, or wires – and requires nothing from the patient except to walk across the platform.
Stepscan’s team of committed engineers also offer:
Custom Report Development: Dedicated to ensuring its customers’ data requirements, Stepscan® software’s flexible infrastructure enables our skilled engineers to rapidly develop custom automated reports. These custom modules more quickly and easily provide customers with the data they require, reducing time spent on assessments, data processing and report generation.
Hardware & API: Stepscan® offers tiles (hardware) with an application program interface (API) that provides core foot-finding algorithms and basic position and direction information. This option allows researchers to use the Stepscan® gait data in their own unique applications.
Integration with Third-Party Technologies: Stepscan® can support various levels of integration with third-party devices (technologies or software) to provide customers with synchronized data sets from multiple data sources such as wearable GPS tracking sensors, heart rate monitors, etc.
