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.
