B型鞋技術可望預防年長者摔倒
The B-Shoe Hopes to Prevent Seniors from Falling Down

內容
Each second in the U.S., an older adult takes a fall, accounting for more than 27,000 deaths from falling among older individuals, according to the CDC. A company based in Haifa, Israel, however, is working on a way to prevent those falls in the first place. B-Shoe Technologies is working on a prototype for a shoe that senses imbalance in every step and uses a mini treadmill-like system to regain balance automatically. The shoe combines a pressure sensor, a microprocessor, a motion device, and software to detect when the user may be slipping and roll forward or backward to prevent the fall. B-Shoe Technologies says the prototype is in the very early stages, and that it plans to go into mass production in the next two years, after slimming down the design.
