How It Works

Smart Shoes and Smart Insoles provide the first-ever full 3-D motion analysis on a continuous, real-time basis within real-world environments. Smart products from Zeblok operate through cellular networks to allow real-time analysis of real-world data capture. Shoes and Insoles capture and relay data within a sensor area network created for specialized purposes, such as within a lab or a therapy room. High-fidelity measurements of gait parameters are translated to outcome measures in real time and are available for review and analysis through a mobile application.

FEATURES

Existing mat-based solutions capture footprint and timing information on a finite-area sensor, which cannot capture foot acceleration or 3-D orientation and motion of the foot while mid-air. Smart Shoes and Smart Insoles from Zeblok wirelessly capture this information and more, and can be customized for your needs and those of your patients.

USE CASES

Gait-related outcome measurements by physical therapists are key for rehabilitation from stroke and musculoskeletal ailments as well as occupational and applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapy for patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

TECHNOLOGY

State of the art Smart Insole TechnologyThe American Physical Therapy Association recognizes the expanding potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics in patient care and improvement in adherence. Zeblok represents state-of-the-art Smart Insole technology, allowing for the first time a truly accurate record of real-world multiaxial foot- and gait-based parameters.

SMART SHOES

The first of its kind in the world, Zeblok Smart Shoes technology permits instantaneous alerts of gait changes, notifying therapists or caregivers about actual or predicted instances of gait instability or fall occurrences. Real-time interventions are now possible to prevent fatigue and resultant injuries.

Features Extracted Via Analytics

Smart Shoes, Smart Insoles, and other Zeblok devices can be effortlessly and unobtrusively incorporated into therapeutic regimens as well as day-to-day use, permitting capture of pure, unbiased motion data. Algorithms within the Zeblok platform—on-device, in-app, and within the secure cloud server—track, count, and analyze multiaxial motion along six degrees of freedom and provide a quantitative view of adherence to rehabilitation protocol instructions or of non-directed, normal activities of the user. Temporal changes in gait or performance of other tracked motion parameters are identified by the Zeblok platform from continuous analysis of real-time, real-world data; these results are presented in an easy-to-understand fashion that can be shared with and used to explain progression to patients.

USE CASE

Clinical Trials

Clinical Trials


Collection of real-world data is increasingly important for modern clinical trials. Novel outcome measures can be now designed and implemented rapidly with the Zeblok platform, including Smart Shoes and Smart Insoles. Data can now be captured unobtrusively at home and within community environments, thereby reducing or eliminating site visits while enhancing convenience for study subjects and conferring savings for study sponsors. Furthermore, confined walking on a pressure-sensitive mat quickly becomes repetitive and can easily bias or skew collected data as well as final study results.

Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled

Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled


Neurological issues such as epilepsy are fairly common within IDD patients; these represent significant risk factors for falls. Continuous monitoring for imbalance and falls is especially critical for IDD patients; Zeblok allows improved safety and avoidance of additional costs of care for otherwise preventable injuries through immediate, real-time identification of potential fall events and allowing rapid intervention.

Home Healthcare

Home Healthcare


Gait disorders, common both with aging and in the setting of specific neurological disorders, are a risk factor for dependence, cognitive decline, falls, and death. Thirty-five percent of the population older than 70 years has some degree of gait abnormality; over fifty percent of people older than 85 years experience some degree of changes in gait. Zeblok Smart Shoes effectively quantify movement patterns of seniors and become an efficient tool with which care providers automatedly monitor the degree and frequency of ambulation and other upright activities while the patient remains within his or her preferred home environment while recuperating or continuing therapy.

Outcome focused rehabilitation requires quantitative view of session by session improvement. Smart shoes enable this tracking. Also ask us about customizing moble application to capture additional signals such as metronome, audio such as voice recording or video.
