Robotic cane shown to improve stability in walking

(Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science) By adding electronics and computation technology to a simple cane that has been around since ancient times, Columbia Engineering researchers have transformed it into a 21st century robotic device that can provide light-touch assistance in walking to the aged and others with impaired mobility. The autonomous robot 'walks' alongside a person to provide light-touch support, much as one might lightly touch a companion's arm or sleeve to maintain balance while walking.
