WALKING GUIDE
WALKING GUIDE

This design concept is a simple device that to help someone, who is a disabled person or elder for walking assist.
1) By using the pressure during walking, this walking stick can generate electricity and store it.
2) In front of the handgrip is a white LED light, which can illuminate at night.
3) When the user falls down or gets hurt and can't stand up, causing the angle between horizontal surface and the walking stick less than 15 degrees, the build-in buzzer and red LED caution lights will be immediately triggered and draw attentions to people around for help.
4) There is a build-in GPS chip of the handgrip.
