vikram_33 commented on The Claw

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your response.
I would like to tell you that it will work like a high heel shoe while climbing up the stairs as the heel will work as a support system for footstep and while climbing down from stairs the front rod will be work as a heel as a support system for foot step. during the time of climbing up and down the stairs only 75% footstep works to touch the surface of each stair and 25% doesn't work to touch the surface of stair so this front and back side rod will work as a support system for 25% untouched footstep while climbing up and down stairs. The colliding is not a major problem as there are a solution such as to tie the rods with clips to hold in vertical direction or develop the rods like extending antennas and folding them many times to reduce the length of the rods.

Hi Lillian!
At first Thanks for your response and sorry for delay.I have done some experiment with some wooden stick and a wooden sole .I attached these sticks with the wooden sole and attached this system with my shoes and walked on rough, muddy and slippery surface and it worked well as I was expecting even I tried to fall myself willingly but this device prevent me from falling and stabilized me due to increased area of footstep.So I think that this device will work .It is very simple to test it and you can also test it with some sticks and a piece of rectangular sheet.It will also work to stabilized the body at the time of touching the ground after jumping.

Hi Kate!
It will look like a Claw but the fingers (steel tubes) will be positioned in vertical direction (just imagine a flip side of a claw)and this device will be attached with the sole of shoe.It is not necessary to attach this device with shoe's sole as we can develop it like a shoe so that there will be no need of attaching this device with shoe.Older people can wear it like shoes.
If you have any doubts then please contact me and tell me about your doubts as I'm ready to clear all doubts .It will be a kind step from you if you could send me a sketch that you have in your mind .
