Mobile Phone Crutch / Sports/Leisure

Mobile Phone Crutch

In daily life, the old people usually can't receive the call from their family, which make their family worried a lot. In reaction to the phenomenon, we designed a kind of walking stick that combined with the cell phone. It can remind them through the sound and vibration simultaneously when calling. In this way, we can guarantee that they couldn't miss any call. At night, they can use the flashlight equipped with the phone to ensure their convenient and safe walking. Besides, in order to increase the frictional resistance and prevent any slipping or tripping accidents, we installed a curved supporting mat at the bottom of the walking stick.
