Introducing the Walkable.
Isowalk is a transformative new mobility aid that makes it easier to walk and harder to fall.
Specialized motion capture unveils and shares mobility health as a 6th vital sign.
Mobility is the most commonly reported ability impairment in the US, especially in people aged 65 and older. Some 20-40 million Americans use a mobility aid, yet mobility health is infrequently measured by professionals and never monitored at home. Senior falls are one of healthcare’s most urgent concerns, but a critical marker has remained largely invisible.
Isowalk is a smart mobility aid designed for active walking assistance and powerful gait analytics. While in use, Isowalk transparently captures unique mobility data that informs both caregivers and clinicians. At the same time, seniors and the mobility challenged experience safer, easier, modern walking assistance beyond the cane.
Simplest Remote Monitoring.
One in three people aged 65+ suffers a fall each year. This results in 2.8 million emergency room visits, 800,000 hospitalizations and $50 billion in annual health spending. Isowalk’s smart mobility aid provides a logical and effective tool for families to keep track of loved ones aging at home. With no effort or action required from elderly users, Isowalk discreetly captures granular mobility performance metrics, analyzing activity trends and reporting fall risk conditions.
Through Isowalk’s unique mobility data, caregivers can remotely gauge their loved ones’ wellness and condition on a daily basis and over time. Changes in activities and patterns can be addressed before they become serious issues. Fall risk indicators can generate alerts, allowing proactive care strategies that can save lives and hospital visits.
For both clinician and consumer, Isowalk offers unprecedented insights into mobility issues and treatment. Health professionals can easily track trends, compliance and progress over time, while recording objective, evidence-based outcomes. Isowalk’s patented gait capture system, created in partnership with the UCLA Wireless Health Institute, shares unique mobility performance data in-office or via cloud for telehealth and remote monitoring.
For patients and consumers, Isowalk can provide gait coaching and predictive timelines that resulting in engaged recoveries and productive home health strategies. Unlike conventional wearables whose sole function is data generation, Isowalk provides dramatic new assistive capabilities. By making walking more effortless, Isowalk promotes healthy mobility, activity and social connectedness.
Easier to Walk. Harder to Fall.
Clinical evidence demonstrates that cane-assisted ambulation can be actively hazardous. Hundreds of thousands of emergency room visits each year are associated with a mobility aid, creating one of our most underestimated public health risks. Walking with a cane imposes surprising physical and cognitive demands that make mobility difficult, especially for the elderly.
Isowalk has been designed to address the key hazards that lead to falls. Self-propulsive geometry reduces cognitive loads. Structured movement induces balance. Ideal orthodpedic loading reduces pain and gait compensations. A curvilinear foot provides superior ground contact and tactile feedback. Users experience radical new ease, comfort and confidence.
