This is a great idea that could be useful not only for elderly but for everyone else as well.
However, I was wondering whether there is a danger in the fact that the circuit would be in contact with water.
Also, how quickly would the pavement wear away when in a public space?

This is such a great idea!
However, the video didn't load on my laptop so I have a few questions.
Many elderly people have trouble with technology, would this be easy to use?
Would the elderly even have direct contact with Smart Gait or would they need to have a caregiver of some sort?

Hi Zachariah! I'm a little confused as to how this relates to falls in the elderly population. Could you please clarify?
