WalkWise is a fitness tracker, safety monitor, and conversation-starter all in one!
We designed it so that the walker user doesn’t need to do a single thing, yet families and caregivers still receive all the incredible benefits.
Walking is mankind’s best medicine, but all too often older adults do not get enough exercise throughout the day. It’s just as important for 80-year-olds as it is for millennial’s! What’s more, you only get credit for walking when you use your walker, encouraging walker use 24/7 and reducing the risk of falls.
Even if you never check the app, you know you’ll be alerted if something goes wrong. Falls, inactivity, no wake-up, low activity, excessive nighttime walking, and more! See below for more detailed information on our alerts and how get them delivered to your devices or phone line.
Hour by Hour data
Do you know how your loved one’s day is going? What about if they got to meals? With our in-depth data, you’ll never have to wonder if they’re not getting around. With our patent-pending algorithms, we can even help determine if they might have a urinary tract infection.
Safe | Simple | Connected
The WalkWise app gathers activity data from our smart walker attachment. This allows you to monitor your loved one's day-to-day activities from anywhere.
You would barely know that our smart walker attachment was on this walker wheel. We designed it to be sleek and non-intrusive to daily activities.
With our simple 3 step setup process. WalkWise quickly connects you to your loved one’s. Our goal is to keep WalkWise simple for the walker user, but full of features for you, the family.
Data Storage & Nodes
WalkWise will store walking data on it when you are out of range of a Node. Going to the store, church, or on vacation? Take your walker and you’ll get credit for the walking you did while you were away. Note that most alerts will NOT send when WalkWise is out of range of the Node. We know that people get around, and we try to limit false positives as much as possible.
Each WalkWise comes with it’s own password, but multiple accounts can have access to a single device. Each account can set up it’s own alerts. For example, a Home Health Nurse might get alerts about excessive bathroom use at night, while a family member might get alerts about the walker being tipped over.
WalkWise uses two AAA batteries, which are accessible without uninstalling WalkWise from the walker. Use a phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two battery covers, and simply replace the batteries. Brand new batteries typically last 6-12 months. You can turn on the “Low Battery Alert” to be notified when the batteries need to be changed.
