While conventional walking canes often lack thoughtful design and still require strain on the part of those using it, the Stride Senze—an intelligent walking companion—is sleek, modern and equipped with smart technology to ensure the safety of users. Created by the Singapore-based NextOfKin, the cane features sensors that scan the area to help navigate spaces; smart technology to monitor the user’s gait, balance and mobility; self-balancing aids for better weight support and fall-detection which alerts social services or family in case of emergencies. Blending futuristic design and technological upgrades, the Stride Senze (which comes in either single support or walker mode) seeks to be a tool for empowerment. Learn more about it at designboom.
