Solely falls prevention

B-Shoe Technologies Ltd has developed a new falls prevention solution - a standard walking shoe that enables the older person to regain their balance and avoid falling.

The B-Shoe (balancing shoe) is a conventional walking shoe that automatically performs a “backward step” accurately and only when needed.

The shoe incorporates pressure sensors, an embedded integrated motion device, a microprocessor, smart algorithms and a rechargeable battery. When imbalance is detected, the motion device rolls the shoe slightly and gently backward until balance is regained. The smart algorithms assure early detection of imbalance and that the shoe will only operate when needed.

The prototypes are currently undergoing testing and B-Shoe Technologies hope to mass market the product within the next two years.
