Sneakers For Seniors Can Call For Help In An Emergency
France – For seniors or people with medical issues, falling down can do a significant amount of damage and getting up can be a challenge. French wearable tech company E-vone designed a smart shoe engineered to send a notification to emergency services if it detects abnormal movements by the wearer.
When something unusual happens, the shoes draw from a recommended list of contacts set up by the wearer and sends out notifications of the event. The sneakers vibrate to confirm that the notification was successfully sent. E-vone created models in three different categories: a sneaker made for seniors to wear daily, a pair of work shoes and hiking boots for anyone heading outdoors for an extended period of time.
