We promote healthy active ageing. According to CDC, older people are particularly vulnerable to severe with the recent coronavirus. The main mode of COVID-19 transmission is through respiratory droplets and contact. Therefore, environmental hygiene is key to personal protection against infection during exercise. As a result, we came up with an idea that a smart walking stick preventing transmission of COVID-19. It serves dual functions protecting elderly against airborne virus and hand contamination. Its built-in UV self-disinfection handle can kill 99% bacteria and its smart air purifier can remove air pollutants.
