The Centre For Assistive Technology at PSG College of Technology in Coimbatore has developed a ‘Gait Watch’ to assist the elderly.
This watch will help the elderly and people who suffer from different conditions such as stroke to monitor their movements and prevent falls.
The device was designed and created by Professor Dr. L.S. Jayashree and Dr. Sundaramoorthy. Dr. Thillai Vallal, Medical Director of Venkataeswara Hospitals, along with Dr. V.S. Natarajan, Father of Geriatric Medicine in India, tested the device and inaugurated the event.
