FAST AND EFFECTIVE GAIT TRAINING











FOR MONITORING AND FEEDBACK TRAINING

The SmartStepTM system is comprised of four components:

  • A flexible, light weight , force-sensing insole
  • A wireless portable, miniature microprocessor control unit for data storage and  
    immediate feedback
  • User-friendly software for gait analysis, display and long-term storage of patient  
    performance records
  • An interactive multimedia training software

SmartStepTM insole measures the force by the heel and                                         
forefoot of the affected limb. The data is received and
stored temporarily by the portable compact wireless
control unit worn around the ankle. Data is relayed from
the control unit to a computer running the SmartStepTM
software. The SmartStepTM application displays a graphic
analysis of the patient’s data, including weight bearing,
velocity, cadence and movement timing. Using this
objective, accurate information, clinicians are able easily
to quantify patient performance, determine therapy goals
and evaluate treatment progress.

The interactive training software enables self training
and exercise in front of a multimedia display, increasing
patient motivation and performance and improving the
effectiveness of each therapy session. Limits are set by
the physical therapists to enable their patients to reach
their targeted weight bearing goals while swooshing and
jumping through the Alps. Not only will patients gain the
confidence they need to reach their optimal functional
performance, but they will also have fun doing it.

BENEFITS & ADVANTAGES
Smart StepTM is an innovative biofeedback and
monitoring system for lower limb rehabilitation. The
system enables physical therapists and clinicians to
assess, treat and monitor patients who have
compromised lower limb functions.
