Compagnon 2.0 Connected Walking Stick

To combine mobility and safety, we have developed a connected walking stick. It comes fitted with a geolocation system associated with a communication device in order to make users feel safe and reassure old people during their outdoor activities.

Under the creative research stage, the walking stick had to resemble a traditional stick without any apparent technology. In addition, the walking stick is autonomous which means that the user doesn’t have to worry about recharging it. In case of a fall, the user will just have to press the distress button.

In partnership with R&D2 innovate, Phoceis and Bluegriot, these different specialists helps us bring our ideas to an industrialized product. The integration of electronics and the development of the app were crucial for the successful implementation of the project.

Today, an emergency button proposes a complex product to use, requiring a difficult learning and often a symbol of a ill-thought-out product.

We started with a ergonomic study for understanding what is a wall stick. And then an ideation phase was been organised.

The “SOS” button on the Compagnon will allow old people to notify their family members  in case of a fall. Thanks to the geolocation feature, they will quickly be able to find and help him/her.

In addition, emergency rescue services will be called automatically in case there is no response from family members.

3D printing becomes easier to make adjustments to the appearance and shape of the prototype. This helped us confirm our common desire to make this product a seemingly ordinary walking stick.

We are aware that tastes and colours are not alike. We have therefore created the Compagnon range with different materials and colours in order to please everyone’s preferences.
