Our mission is to improve healthcare outcomes via precise, evidence-based decision making. By combining the highly sensitive instrumentation of StepWatch™ with our own proprietary algorithms and data analysis software, we provide the objective and accurate data needed to make informed research or clinical decisions.


The Modus StepWatch™ is steeped in scientific history. The algorithm has been validated for accuracy in a broad range of research activities where measurable, reliable data on ambulation are required. Our systems are currently used by many of the top academic medical centers, universities and health systems, clinical research organizations, and pharmaceutical companies around the world.


Modus Health has three unique software offerings, each specific to the needs of academic institutions, clinical trials, and hospitals. Academic institutions most commonly choose the Research app (RE), given its flexibility and one-time fee. Pharmaceutical companies use our Clinical Research Trials app (CR), designed to be easy-to-use by site coordinators with optional services to fit the needs of a given client. Hospitals rely on the Clinical Care app (CC), which was designed for clinicians and patients to facilitate optimal patient mobility.


StepWatch™ is a proven tool for monitoring mobility progress in patients, particularly during hospitalization, physical therapy, and pre/post surgeries or treatments. We developed our Clinical Care (CC) app to empower patient’s participation in their own recovery as well as improve clinical staffing efficiencies managing patient mobilization. When used to facilitate healthy walking, evidence shows our CC software reduces risk of readmission and average length of hospital stay. Our CC software connects to electronic medical records including Cerner and Epic.

The Clinical Research (CR) mobile app for StepWatch™ enables enhanced functionality and improved user experience for clinical trials. The increased accuracy and reliability offered by the CR app paired with StepWatch results in fewer research participants needed to see significant and clinically relevant changes in outcomes, while mobile connectivity and a secure cloud system provide maximum visibility during the trial. Optionally pair a mobile device with our CR Companion app to act as mobile data hubs, automatically transmitting StepWatch™ data to the cloud daily. The CR Cloud processes and interprets participant data daily and notifies users with oversight roles about upload status, compliance, battery level, and activity. This results in mobility data you can trust.


The Modus RE app for StepWatch gives researchers access to our best in class gait monitoring data at a higher resolution and a more affordable price. With over 600 peer-reviewed publications, StepWatch™ is proven to be the most accurate and reliable monitor for analyzing gait, especially in patient populations with slow, shuffling, and/or irregular gait. The RE iPad app is an all-in-one software tool capable of programming StepWatch™, downloading data and even displaying metrics and graphs for locally-stored sessions.

The StepWatch 5 is the latest innovation on the world class technology of the Modus StepWatch™ activity monitoring system. Bringing the fifth generation of the StepWatch™ brand to life, StepWatch 5 maintains the superb accuracy of past models while being smaller, lighter, and providing additional features. StepWatch™ has been proven as an effective tool especially in patient populations with slow, shuffling, and irregular gait.
