Tomer Shussman, CEO of OneStep, is combining in-person physical therapy and in-person care with remote care to provide more accessible healthcare, improve clinical outcomes, and enable clinicians to generate additional revenue streams.  The OneStep smartphone app continuously monitors how patients move and analyzes over 40 different gait parameters. Working with providers, such as physical therapy clinics and orthopedic surgeons, OneStep has entered into the orthotic and prosthetic fields, translating these parameters into actual clinical insights.

Tomer explains, "So the main two or three things we've launched in the last year was one, a fall risk model. So we are now able to tell the user whether they are at a fall risk. I think we're the first ones in the world that have a model that makes sense in the sense that we're not just telling you, "Hey. you are at a high risk of falling," but we're telling you, "The system has recognized that some of your gait parameters have shifted in a way that is associated with a higher risk of falling. So we see that you're taking 10% narrower steps and 15% shorter steps. You're spending a bit too much time on your left leg, and this all has been associated with a fall risk."

"We have developed similar programs for amputees in the field of prosthetics, supporting the fine-tuning of the prosthetics and making sure they're installed properly. We've done similar things for upper body and lower back pain, where providers use OneStep to help triage patients and understand which patients can be transitioned to remote care and which patients can't. This is what OneStep has been focused on in the last year."
