Do you have balance problems? If yes please read

Postby balanceresearcher » Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:08 pm

Hello everyone,
We are working on a device that will help people with balance issues avoid falls. This device will be a vest that you can wear under your clothes without anyone noticing and it will push you back to your center when you're about to fall. It will be a replacement for canes and walkers and even wheelchairs if you're strong enough to walk.
Will you be interested in something like this? Do you have any thoughts or ideas that you'd like to share with us? Thanks for your help.

I wonder how a device hanging around the neck can "push you back." In order to literally do this, it must exert a force against something. Does it have little rocket packs to produce a thrust in the desired direction? A more likely scenario is that it senses the body's change in position an emits an alert of some type allowing you to correct the pending off balance situation before a fall occurs. This is just a guess though.
