Research project In this project we developed a walking aid for people with cognitive disorders that make regular walkers hard to operate.
Our walker detects and avoids regular obstacles (e.g. door posts) and negative obstacles (e.g. curbs). The project was coordinated by Thomas Hellström at UMU, and in collaboration with co-applicants Per Wester from Umeå Stroke Center and Olof Lindahl from CMTS at Norrlands University Hospital. One major outcome of the project was a Swedish patent SE535373 C2.
