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.
