TRAIL GUIDE / Assistive devices


One person in the world has dementia every three seconds. WHO has launched a global programme on dementia to ensure healthy lives for the elderly with dementia. People with dementia usually lose their sense of direction and space first, and then gradually lose their ability to take care of themselves. "TRAIL GUIDE" combines crutches with smart furniture. Crutches have a visual navigation system, so as to provide substantial help for dementia elderly people at home and out, encourage dementia elderly people to exercise and participate in social activities, delay brain degeneration, and ensure the healthy life of dementia elderly people.
