How can a dashboard with
gait tracking data help?

Patients - The dashboard can provide valuable insight into their gait patterns, helping them to better understand their condition and how to manage it.

Doctors - can use the dashboard to track their patients' progress over time and make decisions about treatments.

 

Caregivers - can use the dashboard to monitor their loved one's gait and to provide caregivers with early warning signs of changes in their condition.

 

The dashboard can provide all three with valuable data to inform decision-making around medications, lifestyle changes, and other treatments.

NEED

Gather data from steadygait to track Progress of the patient

INSIGHT

Does not have time to help more patients, coz every visit is 2 hour long.

As a movement disorder specialist When I treat patients with PD. I want to gather all the data about the ailment and its progressions. So I can keep on recommending appropriate therapy. But tracking individual patient's PD progression is hard as they only get to visit me after long intervals..”

Gyroscope

Acclerometer

Lidar

Handheld Device

Addition of sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope & LiDAR on the SteadyGait which would transmit real time data about PD patient's symptoms to doctors and caregivers by means of a Dashboard. This would allow the doctor to visit the patient virtually and prescribe appropriate physical therapy.

Storyboard

Revenue Model

How can steadyTracker earn money?

Subscription

SteadyTracker can be offered on a subscription-based model, where doctors pay an annual fee or a monthly fee (50$ - 200$) to access the dashboard.

Advertisements

SteadyTracker can also make money through targeted advertisements from therapy groups, Parkinson's Foundation, and other support groups.

Monetize Data

SteadyTracker can also make money by collecting and selling anonymized user data to interested parties such as pharmaceutical companies, Wearable device companies or researchers.

revenue-models.png

Therapy Groups & Motor Disability Specialist Clinics market the SteadyGait to patients.

Patients buy the device & work with the doctor on SteadyTracker to share their data & receive timely therapy updates.

 

A certain amount to the patient is charged each time the doctor recommends therapy via the application (this goes to the doctor). Out of which, a share goes to CreateAbility.

 

It can work with insurance as it is a virtual doctor visit.

Therefore, insurance pays the bill. ​
