   Technology and Product Development

    Basic Information

Technology developed: SWASTi: Smart Walking Aid Stick for Parkinsons Patients (TP19761715932)
Category: Product (Hardware/Material/Software)
Details of Inventor(s):
Inventor Institution/Organization/Company Department Designation
Prof. Uttama Lahiri IIT Gandhinagar Associate Professor
Sai Rama Krishna G IIT Gandhinagar Student
Megh Patel IIT Gandhinagar Student
Technical Application Area: Healthcare
If 'Other', please specify:
Please give more details of new technical application area:
This system is designed to be used by Parkinson patients. The system is capable of sensing the possibility of freezing of the gait from patients movement and stride length. Subsequently, the system will provide different cues, such as visual, auditory and vibratory cues to the patient before the actual freezing takes place thereby helping to prevent Freezing of Gait. Thus the patient will be independent while moving thereby enjoying safety and a sense of well-being.
Organization(s):
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar
Affiliated Ministry: DST, Govt. of India
Type of technology development: Indigenous
Does the technology help in replacing any import items currently
procured from outside India?
Does the technology have export potential? 1
Category of Technology developed: Immediate Deployment
Stage of Development: Prototype Level
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
Smart Walking Aid Stick is at the Technology Readiness Level 6. The technological demonstration of the developed system has been demonstrated successfully. Also, limited clinical trial has shown the results to be promising.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
