Lighting Walking Stick / Walking Stick

Lighting Walking Stick

The elderly usually would suffer from decreased vision and they would require a clear view of their path when walking at night. Lighting Walking Stick functions as a portable light source for them. It illuminates the path for the elderly while not affecting other people as it does not directly shine any light towards their eyes. The elderly have less agility and mobility, and are more likely to be hit by cars and bicycles at night. Lighting Walking Stick would increase people's awareness of the elderly by making then more visible, therefore decreasing the likelihood of collision accidents.
