The Buddy Badge System™ is both a technological innovation and a social innovation. Physically, the Buddy Badge is comprised of wearable badges, infrared zone markers, dispenser counters, and charging stations. The Buddy Badge discreetly prompts health care workers to perform hand hygiene when entering or leaving a patient room if they have not already done so. The Buddy Badge is focused on being a “buddy” to health care professionals. That means we are focused on solving problems for the staff as well as the hospital!Read More
iwalkAssess is one of the latest evidence-informed approaches to walking assessment post-stroke. iwalkAssess app helps therapists using the 10-meter walk test and the 6-minute walk tests to improve patient care. The app has test protocols, timing tools, and automated calculations that make it easier to administer and score tests and interpret test performance at the point of care for goal setting and patient education. The iWalk Guide has been developed by our multidisciplinary research team based on systematic reviews of the literature, and after reviewing by international researchers and physical therapists from across Canada, the iWalk Guide content has been used to develop iWalkAssess. Physical therapists in Ontario and Nova Scotia use the iWalk Toolkit to educate patients about their level of walking ability, set goals relevant to walking in the community, and teach their students an evidence-informed approach to using outcome measures.Read More
The Acquisition and Analysis of Bone Mineral Density of the Distal Femur and Proximal Tibia Protocol is intended for use with a polycarbonate knee positioning device. This device is made-to-order, and is not recognized by the Hologic densitometer. The device maintains position and prevents rotation or movement artifact of the patients’ leg during scan acquisition. The foot plate and knee elevator are repositioned using velcro attachments to adjust for the limb size of the patient. The positioning device enables reproducible scan acquisition and helps to prevent common movement artifacts among individuals with spinal cord injury or other mobility impairments. Additional velcro strapping, to aid in patient positioning, can be ordered separately, if needed.Read More

The Opioid Manager is designed to support health care providers prescribe and manage opioids for patients with chronic non-cancer pain. It provides essential information and advice from the Canadian Guideline for Safe and Effective Use of Opioids for Chronic Non-cancer Pain. It can be used as a chart insert, iOS app, or installed into EMRs to be a point of care tool to aid in prescribing, tapering doses and switching opioids, calculating MER, and more.
While the Opioid Manager has been tested during its development, we invite interested practitioners to try this tool and provide feedback and suggestions for improvement.Read More
The SENSIMAT is a thin mat with pressure sensors used to retrofit wheelchair cushions to help wheelchair users manage pressure during sitting. A connected app informs the user on their smartphone if there’s a build-up of pressure and they are due for a relief. Monitoring and tracking of user progress and pressure data is made available through a web portal. The dashboard can be used by occupational therapists, physiotherapists, or other caregivers to monitor the individual remotely, helping to determine the best care plan and pressure relief strategy.Read More
