 Walk With Isowalk

Cane technology seems to have evolved and there is much talk about Isowalk , an intelligent and smart cane, that is capable of adapting to its user's requirement.

Kineticane LLC (Caldwell, NJ), the company behind it, is on the job to develop a walking aid that is able to adapt to its user.

The Isowalk comes with a smart force relief system which adjusts according to the user's weight, wrist pressure, and gait. This enables cushioning as per the user's requirement.

The Isowalk requires very less user effort and it is endowed with the ability to position itself for the next step.

The bottom tip of the Isowalk has a new design that comes with better ground contact and helps both with fast walking as well as braking.

The organization is working towards a progressive design, especially in the upcoming versions. It plans to employ technology to enable real-time gait feedback, to communicate to motion sensors at home and providing information about location.

The Isowalk intelligent walking aid will be available in January 2014.
