The Footprints Walking Frame by Quanticare Technologies

The Footprints walking frame features a sensor which measures walking quality to prevent falls in the elderly. Since falls are the result a slow deterioration of gait quality being able to continuously monitor gait will enable more proactive falls prevention measures.

Our sensor will measure the same clinometric properties of gait that clinicians use today to understand falls risk but do so: continuously, passively and contextually so that treatment can be delivered before a fall happens, interventions can be optimized and their efficacy measured. The Footprints walking frame will transform falls prevention from an event driven system to a data driven one.
