A simple fall can result in irreparable damage for a senior citizen, but potentially life saving devices are often unappealing to wear, which is why the wearable tech company E-Vone has created this stylish pair of smart sneakers for seniors, which can send notifications to the appropriate source in the event of an emergency.
The shoes learn the patterns of the wearer and can detect abnormal movement. This means that the shoes will be aware of a slip and fall or prolonged inactivity. Following this detection, the smart sneakers for elderly people will send an emergency notification to a pre-selected list of contacts and will even vibrate to confirm with the wearer that help is on the way.
The company created three variations of this sneaker, making an appropriate pair for daily wear, working or hiking.
