Svetlana Malinsky Great insight! Thanks for offering your feedback! As we're prototyping the shoe, we'll be sure to consider the weight and positioning of each component of the shoe.


Kira Lucretia commented on B-Shoe

Fascinating technology Kate Rushton ! Ooo yeah, I agree with Isaac Jumba my heart kept jumping each time it moved backwards. Anne-Laure Fayard I really like the concept of a shoe that can anticipate a fall, but I'm curious what normal day to day walking looks like with this design. The shoe looks really heavy and quite bulky. Looking forward to seeing how the technology can be further extrapolated. I was recently made aware of another type of shoe taking a “hands free” approach. Looks like the shoe design addresses quite a few issues that lead to falls.  Check it out!


Kira Lucretia commented on Wearable Fall Prevention Airbag

Thanks! The technology is really fascinating. The product details mention the attachment could be worn under or on top of clothing. I'm assuming however, if it's worn underneath the clothing must be loose fitting.
