About modus

modus health’s mission is to provide accurate and actionable physical activity data and analytics to inform clinical decision making, improve efficiency for payors, and optimize outcomes for patients.   We focus on patient segments with slow or irregular gait in which our StepWatch™ technology is uniquely accurate in measuring physical activity.

modus health is a Washington, D.C.-based health care technology company.  Its core technology, the StepWatch™ Activity Monitor, has been the recognized standard in collecting physical activity data for research applications for over fifteen years.  That spirit of excellence in data collection and analysis is the foundation for everything modus does.

Typical mobile health solutions involving physical activity have been positioned as wellness applications for the young and the fit.  modus founders saw a substantial need to develop activity-based solutions for those with slow and irregular gait – a segment of millions of people who are the most significant consumers of health care services and are not otherwise served by popular, consumer-oriented products.

modus already collects the most accurate data, but good data is only useful if it gives us actionable insights that in turn can improve care delivery.  The company has developed unique algorithms for assessing function in key patient populations that set it further apart from the field.  As StepWatch™ is an FDA Class II device, along with nearly two hundred peer reviewed publications attesting to its accuracy and unparalleled effectiveness, modus is uniquely positioned to play a significant role in improving the lives of those with slow and irregular gaits.
