Tractivity is an activity monitoring system that tracks the activity history of individuals and large populations in an easy to understand, secure, motivating manner.



1. Improve Health

2.  Reduced Costs

3.  Better Quality of Service


Our healthcare partners use our wearable solution to improve patient engagement in their inpatient ambulation and outpatient activity programs ...

... enabling better quality of care, improved health outcomes, and cost savings.


Learn why clinicians and hospital administrators choose Tractivity:



In-Patient Ambulation:

"Stepping toward discharge: Level of ambulation in hospitalized patientsa recent publication by Kaiser Permanente in the Journal of Hospital Medicine about an in-patient ambulation study enabled by Tractivity.

In-Patient Ambulation:

"Increasing early mobility on an ACE unita recent presentation by Palmetto Health at the 2015 Niche Conference about an in-patient ambulation pilot enabled by Tractivity.

COPD Managment:

Tractivity is being used as a component of a California-based COPD clinical trial to address the mounting evidence that physical inactivity is significantly associated with more frequent hospitalizations and increased mortality in COPD. 


Nursing Health:

"How physically active are Canadian registered nurses working in a tertiary care cardiovascular health centre?recent findings by the University of Ottawa Heart Institute about worksites potentially being an opportune place to target physical activity behaviour in an effort to improve PA levels as well as metabolic and cardiovascular health of nurses.

Diabetes Prevention:

Tractivity is being used as a component of an Ontario-based pilot randomized controlled trial of postpartum women with Gestational Diabetes to assess their activity, which seeks to evaluate the impact of health and lifestyle coaching at Women's College Hospital.

Geriatric Health:

Tractivity is being used to monitor activity levels in patients enrolled in Strength Testing After Nitrate Delivery (STAND) study at Wake Forest Baptist Health.  STAND is an investigator-initiated double blind placebo controlled pilot study of nitrate supplementation in older mechanically ventilated patients with Acute Respiratory Failure (ARF). 

Cancer Rehab:

Tractivity will be utilized by the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in a program, named "Steps for Quality of Life".  This pilot with cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy will monitor activity and encourage increased walking.  The hypothesis is that walking will increase, and that there is a dose response with quality-of-life, including coping with daily tasks, depression, and fatigue.

In-Patient COPD:

Tractivity is being used to promote and track daily hospital ambulation of COPD inpatients to measure impact on length of stay and readmissions in a collaborative, descriptive study between a Detroit-area health system hospital and local university.  COPD Patients represent a large proportion of the population commonly re-admitted within 30 days of previous discharge possibly resulting in financial penalties to the hospital system.  The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of a wearable activity monitoring system on patient outcomes including falls, length of stay, discharge disposition, 30-day re-admissions and patient satisfaction scores.


Why Tractivity is focussed on healthcare applications...

Tractivity has responded to healthcare requests to develop a system that empowers clinicians to engage their patients in the preventative or rehabilitative benefits of wearable technology.  We enable healthcare providers and insurers to apply wearable technology with at-risk patients for the purpose of improving patient outcomes and driving down healthcare costs.  These patients typically will not, on their own, purchase or adhere to consistent use of a wearable device.  Providing clinician or health coach oversight, at-risk patients are more likely to modify their behaviour when experiencing periodic intervention by a doctor, nurse or physiotherapist.
