Where Wearable Meets Desirable
We couldn’t talk about Giant Health Event without sharing the SensoryXD Fashion Catwalk Show. The event highlighted the importance of desirability in the success of wearable and healthtech products - something that so often loses out to functionality particularly in tech. The show, coordinated by Stephanie Pau, also showcased some genuinely useful technology that could soon have a real life impact for people with movement disorders.
Walk With Path were there to showcase their awesome product, Path Finder, specifically designed to combat Freezing of Gait. This phenomenon is a common issue with walking for people with Parkinson's Disease and other movement disorders and is an important risk factor for falls. It is a shoe attachment which uses a laser that projects visual cues on to the floor to guide stepping movements for the corresponding foot.
