Simple and impactful technology.
Our smart walker attachment helps PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) know what’s going on at home, allowing you to keep participants safe, healthy, and active.
Promote walker use compliance, better understand daily activity patterns, and screen for high-risk behavior.
Excessive activity can be the sign of infection or cognitive decline, while lack of activity can point to injury or illness.
Get notified if the walker tips over, does not move for a period of time, or does not move in the morning.
The Smart Walker Attachment
PACE programs use WalkWise to encourage walker use compliance at home, preventing falls and promoting health. Smart watches simply do not work for walker users, as their wrists do not move while ambulating. And unlike other “smart home” technologies, WalkWise does not require professional installation.
Designed for PACE
Participants rarely have 24/7 “eyes-on”, despite being at high risk of falling or sharp declines in health status. WalkWise gives your program real-time insight, allowing your staff to prioritize care and catch issues early.
How it works:
Attach to the wheel
The WalkWise smart walker attachment zip-ties onto the wheel of the walker. Just make sure to measure the wheel diameter!
Plug in the Node
It communicates with the walker attachment and send data and notifications to the system. Neither internet nor setup is required.
Use the apps
Set notifications, view the dashboard, and manage the system at app.walkwise.com. WalkWise for Organizations is available for mobile devices.
Respond to notifications
Our notifications and easy-to-understand data facilitates and prioritizes the important work of your team.
PACE teams love WalkWise.
Simple for participants.
WalkWise is easiest remote patient monitoring (RPM) solution for many seniors to use, and it can be set up by anyone at your program.
WalkWise lasts over a year on two AAA batteries, so that no one has to remember to charge it.
Wearable RPM solutions struggle with compliance and are often not worn at night, in the shower, or other high-risk situations.
Not everyone has internet or a smartphone. Our Node takes care of everything using the cellular networks.
Interfaces for the whole IDT
See your participants in one place, make sure they are up in the morning and moving, and screen for unexpected behavior the previous night.
Participant data at a glance
Get a comprehensive view of their daily activity, track their Night Owl Score, and configure notifications.
Check in on the go, or show participants their own data during therapy sessions to encourage activity outside the center.

Selected Case Studies
WalkWise allows Northland PACE care providers to continuously screen for signs of illness or infection, reducing costs and short-term skilled nursing utilization. They can promptly deploy paramedics to homes after a fall has occurred, rather than waiting up to 72 hours for the next scheduled touchpoint. During physical therapy, WalkWise data is used to encourage activity at home, leading to dramatic functional improvements. WalkWise has become an essential tool for keeping PACE participants safe and healthy at home, especially during the pandemic.
PACE Southeast Michigan
By using WalkWise data and notifications to better time outreach, PACE Southeast Michigan demonstrated a 43% reduction in falls over six months among a pilot population of 15 participant. In one instance, a participant would have been on the floor all weekend after a fall had WalkWise not sent a notification to the program, allowing for paramedics to arrive within 30 minutes.
