Publication/Creation DateSeptember 10 2015
DescriptionAwareable Steps is designed to assist self-alert and security monitoring for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Using vibration motors, the shoes alert a patient who is inactive for 20 minutes. Also, family or caregivers can track the patient’s location via mobile services such as Find iPhone or Find My Android Phone. Our design decisions are based on three themes: problem solving for specific users, fashion and aesthetics, and accessible technology.
