Sentry Scientific brought a different kind of technological innovation to CES 2014 with the Sentry Scientific Walker. Instead of newfangled computers, TVs or phone apps, Sentry introduced a brand new model of walker, made specifically to improve the safety of the elderly individuals who use walkers to get around on a day-to-day basis.

The Sentry Scientific Walker has specially constructed braking technology that locks the brakes for a gradual resistance to keep the individual upright and balanced whenever a downward slope is detected, so the user wont lose control when going down an incline. The system also auto-locks breaks when it detects someone is sitting on the walker and will not release until the user manually releases the catch. The Sentry Scientific Walker technology will vastly improve elder safety in the future.
