Aging population is becoming a key problem which humans can’t avoid. “SAFEGUARD” is a kind of high-tech stockings which are with pressure sensitive insole and shear thickening fluid (STF). When the user is about to fall down , the pressure sensitive insole will detect the departure of body’s mass center, and send messages to the vibrator which fits out on knees and ankles. After the vibrator stimulates STF, its condition will be changed immediately, from liquid to solid state. Even if the user falls down or hits something hard, the user can be free from harm by SAFEGUARD’s protection.
