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 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.
