Project Title
Walking Aid for Parkinson's Patients
Design Challenge
Parkinson's patients often experience difficulty walking, including "freezing of gait" and being unable to lift their feet, particularly in distracting environments. These patients have been shown to benefit from visual and auditory cues while walking, especially 3D staircase illusions. Our team will be exploring the most effective walking aid and implementing it in a cost-effective solution.
