Introducing the Revolutionary Sensastep® System

For Use by Patients with:

  • Amputations
  • Neuropathy
  • Orthopedic injury
  • Impaired Proprioception

The Sensastep® System

The Sensastep® System is a self-contained footstep monitoring device which informs the patient by way of an extraneural pathway when a threshold of pressure is attained.

The Patented Sensastep® System consists of:

  • A flexible foam insole, (material is ISO compliant for hospital use), which can be trimmed to fit the sole, and can be reversed for left or right applications.
  • A small transmitter module, which can be strapped around the ankle.
  • A lightweight receiver module, which is worn behind the ear.
  • A separate transmitter/receiver module with computer USB connection, for use by a therapist/clinician, which graphically displays the user’s gait pattern using InStep software.
  • Transmitter and receiver modules are powered by a rechargeable battery, which provides a minimum of 24 hours of continuous use
  • Automatic shutoff after 30 minutes of inactivity

The system:

  • Provides a possible alternative to amputation for patients with tibial nerve damage and resulting insensate lower limb
  • Is easily incorporated into existing prosthetics
  • Can be used in gait and exercise therapy for diabetic neuropathy, certain balance disorders and orthopedic post-operative use.
