ounded by a Physical Therapist, Stedi is dedicated to optimizing mobility when and where it's difficult. Everything we do is for those determined to move. We’re doing this by building thoughtfully designed devices that are simple to use, beautiful to look at and address the core of user, caregiver and medical professional challenges. Our flagship product, StediStep, is an award winning concept design approaching final development. Patents Pending.
Stedi is a proud member of the MATTER community, connecting and collaborating to advance innovations in healthcare.
Hidden within our design is an anti-tipping frame design concept, the "Reaction Stabilizer". Proprietary to Stedi, this makes us truly special - outperforming the traditional walker in preliminary stability testing by 2500% (Data on file).
To more capably maneuver over commonly encountered surface types and changes without sacrificing necessary stability.
Encourages forward weight shifting and improved mechanics to support transitions to standing.
Shakes negative stigma while providing greater value.
Intuitive use to span a variety of individual needs while also building in forgiveness of common mistakes because - we're all human.
ADA compliant size and ease of use across all settings - home, hospital or clinic.
of Physicians and Physical Therapists surveyed believe more appropriate walker-type device options are necessary.
SmartStep's concept is meant to limit common moments of vulnerability and struggle by mitigating tipping while also providing a feedback cue to help the user engage their natural balance strategy. Early engineering theories suggest potential for up to 40x more stable than the traditional walker.
To handle basic surface changes commonly encountered and often a source of struggle.
Encourages a forward weight shifted position and helps stabilize the transition to standing.
SmartStep shakes negative stigma associated with traditional walkers, drawing strong influence from contemporary bike design for an innovative and modern look.
To accommodate a range of physical and cognitive needs.
For easy storage.
"New strategies are necessary to improve device acceptability and accessibility." - The Gerontologist, 2017
Use of assistive equipment is highly correlated with requiring a supportive network of family, caregivers and/or clinicians. Thus - building better often means assisting more than just the user.
