The ModeESt project intends to improve the health and wellbeing of patients with a walker-integrated sensor module that tracks their posture and can help prevent trips and falls. Distance sensors with dedicated software algorithms are used to recognize improper use of the walker and can recognize problematic movements, with sensor feedback directly drawing the patients’ attention to their poor.
