Path Feel is an insole which helps the wearer feel the floor better, through providing active feedback to improve balance. It is designed for individuals with peripheral neuropathy, such as the elderly, or persons suffering from diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s. Path Feel also collects health data to assist in the development of diagnostics and personalised medicine solutions.
Path Finder is a shoe that provides visual cues for the wearer to guide the foot movement and gait. It is designed for Parkinson’s patients who suffer from Freezing of Gait (FoG), and intervenes by triggering movement and preventing falls. Visual cues have been found to break FoG and these are provided through the shoes of the user, removing the need for help from others or multi-tasking.
