Congratulations to SafeStep, the Grand Prize Winner of the Quadruple Impact Challenge!
Peripheral neuropathy affects twenty million people in the United States and often causes nerve damage in the feet. This damage can cause imbalance and result in falls, which can be especially dangerous for older people suffering from the condition. SafeStep is a device that aids those with peripheral neuropathy by making it safer for them to walk.
SafeStep is a pair of insoles with sensors that detect which part of the foot is bearing weight and provides feedback to the user through audio tones, vibration, and pressure.
SafeStep pitched off live at the MedTech Impact Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, NV on December 14th. They won a $10,000 Grand Prize to help advance their idea.
