Discussion Summary

Senior Design Meetup member Wayne speaks of inventing a Self-Balancing biometric cane that can sense shifts of balance by the user and compensate accordingly. He envisions a cane that is stable enough at rest to be able to lean against if the user is weary or to prevent a fall when the user is off balance.
