Reduce Falls

Randomized Trial Results: A recent pilot study demonstrated an almost 30% decrease in falls in the 3 months following the trial when ActiveStep training was included as part of a normal physical therapy program (n=26) when compared to controls (n=35).

Improve Mobility and Confidence
while Reducing Fall Risk

Timed Up and Go (TUG): This standard mobility test measures, in seconds, the time required to stand from a chair, walk 3 meters, turn, walk back and sit down. Times longer than 14 seconds are associated with a high risk of falls in community dwelling adults age 65-85.

Increase Stability

ActiveStep Stability Scores: The score represents the highest level challenge that the client succesfully completes for each of the ActiveStep stability challenges (Trunk Stability Trip, Trunk Stability Slip, Step Stability and Walking Stability). Increasing level are representative of increased treadmill acceleration and/or displacement.
