Senior-design students present 20 innovations
“StrideSmart” is a smart assistive cane attachment for the geriatric population to help monitor patient walking patterns and potentially prevent falls for users. The device would notify users of irregular walking patterns in real-time through a companion smartphone application. The team also recently won Purdue’s Spark Challenge on Friday, Dec. 9 with the device.
The 2nd place winner was the "autoCPR: Low-Cost Accessible CPR" team: Shadman Jubaer, Michael Dziekan, Vicki Sell, and Sudhanshu Manda. The 3rd place winner was the "Viratect: Portable Biosensor to Predict Outbreaks and Protect Lives" team: Jonathan Hsu, Axel Masquelin, Ryan Preston, and Andrew Witten.
