A wearable belt that prevents falls by analyzing gait. The SMART BELT is equipped with sensors and algorithms that calculate fall risk due to abnormal gait patterns. Welt points out that falls can be fatal and expensive. Falls happen due to walking patterns. With the embedded technology, the SMART BELT detects walking patterns by measuring the right and left foot strike power and walking speed through the body’s temperature. When an imbalance detected, a signal is sent to the user’s phone alerting them.

Medication and their doses are loaded in the pill chute. The medication is stored in a pill-wheel which is split into doses. Lastly, the attached pill cup dispense the medication directly. This system replaces the traditional medicine cabinet and comes with an app that synched to the consumer’s phone. The app keep tracks of medication, sends reminders, and is able to communicate with the healthcare team.
