French startup Izome has developed shoes that warn of the fall of its owner

The Izome startup, initiated by the French group Eram, will launch 2018 shoes with a built-in hazard warning in late summer - shoes transmit a signal in the event of a person falling, says Les Echos.

Such shoes may be in demand among older people and in the case of a variety of isolated work, such as security guards or farmers. In France, more than 1,5 million people are workers who might need the new technology, according to Eram.

The electronic device integrated in the polyurethane sole (30 gr.) Includes the functions of a gyroscope, accelerometer and pressure sensor. In the event of a person falling, the geolocation signal warns assistants through low-speed and GSM networks. After the signal arrives to the assistants, the shoes vibrate and thereby soothe the owner of the shoe.

Eram draws on the experience of Parade of another company, which is part of the French group and specializes in producing safety shoes since 1978 of the year. This factory sells about a million pairs of shoes per year. “Our mission is to protect people,” said Frank Scherel, CEO of Parade and Izome. - We are moving from passive protection to active. But we need a simple solution, since the workers for whom this innovative footwear is designed should not be advanced in robotics, the footwear should be normal, easy to use, and the additional services should be understandable. " In fact, the existing French warning devices for isolated work (Dati) are not widespread and poorly used.

It took two years of research to create this innovative shoe, which has already been tested at 15 enterprises. It will go on sale in late summer 2018 year. The price for a pair of shoes will vary from 100 to 150 euros. Izome also provided the option to remove the device from a disused pair of shoes and transfer it to a new pair for reuse. Shoes can be rented. The company identified 80 cases of using this innovative shoe.

The Izome startup, initiated by the French group Eram, will launch at the end of summer 2018 footwear with built-in danger alert - the footwear transmits a signal in the event of a person falling, writes Les ...
