“The biggest issue for me is that people aren’t listening, so it’s an issue of not enough pressure or too much pressure. With teenagers it’s a little bit less of «too much», it’s a matter of putting enough weight to it, so I can track it. I can see their percent, so when they come I can say: «Hey, you are not doing enough. You’ve make a thousand steps the first week and week 2 you kinda fall off. You have to stop your game up and get more compliance to put more pressure or ask them not to put too much pressure”

“The issue arise is that one the patient foot is out of the scale, really there is no other way to tell how much weight they are actually putting. There is no objective medical founded”
• Patients tend to load the injured leg 2 times more than required
• 80% of patients are afraid to step on their feet after surgery and delay a timely rehabilitation
• Patients have difficulty replicating new weight-bearing status restrictions
The idea of attaching Smart Tips to crutches was tested with real patients, and unlike insoles, Smart Crutch Tips are:– Always with the patient, even at night, when the patient is barefoot– More durable – 3 years of use– Available to consumers of any age and shoe size– More affordable to implement– Fit the reusable model
When walking on crutches, there is a moment during which the healthy leg is completed lifted off the ground and the entire load is distributed between the crutches and the injured leg.
We can determine how much load is placed on the injured limb by subtracting the amount of weight on the crutches from the patient’s body weight. For example: if a patient’s weight is 80 kg and during a step he transferred 60 kg to crutches, then 20kg of pressure was exerted on the injured limb.
The accuracy of Smart Crutch Tips is 98,5%.
The amount of initial weight bearing can be set from 0% NWB to 50% PWB. The upper threshold for graduated WBAT is 80%.
The Smart Crutch Tips device can be used by patients recovering from nonsurgical and surgical treatments for hip, thigh, knee, shin, ankle, and foot injuries and pathologies
