Special walking stick helps people with Parkinson’s keep moving

Developed by Neha Chaudhry, a Bristol student who watched her grandfather struggle with the disease, the walking stick is equipped with a sensor that detects when a person has stopped walking and emits a vibration that can be felt but not heard.

The beat in the handle helps a person with Parkinson’s to continue to walk and could prevent them from falling. Neha is the recipient of a grant which could get the walking stick up and running and in the hands of more people with the disease.
