Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a walking aid system for a Parkinson’s disease affected person. In accordance with the present disclosure, the walking aid system comprises a stick, a first controller, a first ultrasonic sensor module, a laser generator module, a second ultrasonic sensor module, an auditory module, and a vibrator module. The stick is to be carried by the Parkinson’s disease affected person and the components are disposed on the stick. The walking aid system is configured to receive sense and measure physical parameters associated with the walking of the person and predict freezing of gait based on the physical parameters. The walking aid system is further configured to generate multiple sensory signals to alert the Parkinson’s disease affected person regarding the prediction of freezing of gait.

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.
