Smart Socks Gait Monitoring System Research Study

smart socks

Participants needed for a new research study at Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare in Pomona to evaluate Smart Socks Gait Monitoring System for improving rehabilitation outcomes. The Sensoria Smart Socks gait monitoring system is a pair of socks and anklet bands that provide real-time monitoring of gait. Falls and subsequent health issues related to challenges in gait (walking) can occur when individuals are recovering from a stroke or brain injury or are dealing with progressive neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD) or Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The goal of the research study is to evaluate whether the Smart Socks system could be used for monitoring and identifying gait related symptoms during daily life activities in order to optimize treatment for neurological conditions.

Are you eligible to participate?

◆ Individuals between the ages of 18 and 90 who are able to come to Casa Colina and safely complete a walking task
◆ Individuals who have not been diagnosed with any neurological injury or disease
◆ Individuals diagnosed with a neurological condition that may result in gait deficits. Diagnoses may include but are not limited to: Stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Traumatic Brain Injury

What is involved in the Smart Socks Gait Monitoring System?

◆ We will examine your gait using the new SmartSocks gait monitoring system and a clinically validated gait monitoring system called the GAITRite so that we can compare the two systems
◆ If you decide to take part in this study, we will ask you to wear the Smart Socks while you walk across the GAITRite monitoring mat (a distance of approximately 19 feet)

    Nice testimonial from Sherry C. in Simi Valley:
    “Just wanted you to know my husband, Brian and I just returned from the Smart Socks study in Pomona at Casa Colina Hospital. It was painless and it took us longer to drive there then the study took, but the researchers when great guys!
    I mentioned you had suggested the study was one of those things we could do to help the research.”
