DST Triple Sense

Pressure Mapping for flat walking, stairs, and slope

The DST Triple Sense combines all three mandatory gait functions –flat-surface walking, climbing stairs and negotiating slopes, with the most advanced pressure mapping technology, providing a comprehensive, evidence based treatment.

It helps diagnose, treat, and study patients’ ambulatory capabilities on neurological, orthopedic, and geriatric rehabilitation.

Pressure Mapping
For All Gait Functions

with Raw Data

3 Meters

Height Adjustable

Angle Adjustable

Analyzed Data Includes:

  • Right/left force distribution

  • Anterior/posterior force distribution

  • Center of Pressure

  • Feet angle

  • Step length

  • Step time

  • Stair usage - height and time

  • Slope usage - degree and time

  • Parallel bars – 3 meter walk-time


The benefits of real-time gait biofeedback in rehabilitation has already been proven to encourage significant and clinically relevant improvements (Gelder, 2017; Genthe, 2018). The DST Triple Sense takes these benefits to the next level by providing real-time feedback on patient’s performance in all three functionalities: stairs, slope, and parallel bars.

Physiotherapists must multi-task, keeping patients safe and motivated while maintaining correct posture, motion and more. The DST Triple Sense puts an end to this struggle by employing visual and auditory biofeedback to help patients regain control and stay motivated during the exercise. Physiotherapists can now guide and secure their patients throughout the course of the exercise without having to worry about its quality or missing compensations.

Clinicians can choose the most relevant movement pattern for their patient to practice and use real-time biofeedback to improve upon it. For example, a clinician can decide to focus on symmetric weight bearing between the legs, and adjust the acceptable asymmetry threshold (in percentages). When the patient rises to the challenge and performs within the thresholds, a positive feedback signal will be heard. If the patient deviates from the decided thresholds, the positive auditory feedback will stop.

When the patient functions outside the defined range, a negative sound is heard, and the data is colored red on the screen.

You can see the exact angle of each step for each foot.


On the Pressure View window (on the left), you can see improvement in the right foot angle from step to step.

On the right you can see the sessions angle average by foot.

Allowing patients to track their progress in an accurate and timely manner, and rewarding them accordingly with real-time positive feedback, will increase their motivation and overall commitment to the rehabilitation process.


Bridging the void between the clinic and the lab

The lack of evidence-based measuring tools makes it difficult to justify treatment to insurance companies. This in turn denies patients from maximizing their rehabilitation potential in minimum time. DST Triple Sense bridges the technology void between the clinical and laboratory environments. Clinicians can now implement the most effective treatment for each patient based on hard evidence – without consuming precious lab resources such as time, space, and labor.

Diagnose you patients’ source of impairment, create an accurate treatment plan, and keep track on their progress – all without leaving the clinic!

DST Triple Sense

DST Triple Sense system is the only mechanism which enables gait analysis and diagnosis of movement impairments in all three areas: parallel bars, stairs, and slope. The system provides data regarding uneven weight distribution, step length and time, center of pressure , weight distribution of the foot, and more. The obtained information will help you identify  the root cause of  patient’s impairment, create an accurate treatment plan, keep track of a patient’s progress, and  reveal the risk factors inherent in  dangerous  situations, such as falls. The bottom line is simple: optimal treatment efficiency, maximum rehabilitation potential, and reduction of rehab costs and duration.


Supporting the advancement of gait rehabilitation

The body of research on stairs and slope movement analysis is vast and holds great opportunities. DST Triple Sense is the only instrument in the world to combine all three gait functions with force plate measurement technology, for a full-scale pressure mapping. A truly groundbreaking research opportunity would be the development of metrics for the setting of threshold tests aim to reduce stair-related falls among the elderly.


Compared to falls on flat surface, falls on stairs represent a disproportional high risk for death or sever injury. Typical injuries include the head and neck, TBI, and hip fracture. These injuries are known to result in long-term disability and high financial costs.

  • 51% of all fall-related Traumatic Brain Injuries of the elderly occur on stairs.

  • 70% of all falls in the home environment occur on stairs.

  • 10% of all falls among the elderly occur on stairs.

  • 10% Of all fatal fall accidents occurs on stairs

Development of acceptable threshold parameters to reduce falls among the elderly will save lives, money, and resources.

Other research opportunities include an analysis of the correlation between movement patterns occurring during stairs and slope negotiation and their clinical consequences, and the impact of diverse exercise methods over patients’ performances, evaluated with real-time biofeedback.
