P14041: Smart Walker II


Project Summary Project Information

The Smart Walker II is designed to be used to assist the elderly in long term care facilities. The Smart Walker II should act like and resemble a regular walker and not be obtrusive; the previous Smart Walker that was developed was too obtrusive and robot-like.

The walker should be able to collect information about the user's health and functionalities (heart rate, temperature, etc.), be semi-autonomous, mobile, capable of detecting and preventing falls, and the ability to localize patients in its workspace for emergencies. The resulting design is a Smart Walker II that is unobtrusive and is much like a regular walker with enhanced features. The patient will use the walker as they would a regular walker during their daily routines.
