CADY project a top contender for design awards
As part of the MDE studio, the student team of Togo Kida, Hane Roh, Mitsue Guerrero Monsalve, and Yash Bhutada (all MDE ’20), created CADY, a personalized coach in the form of a handle for a walking aid. Employing calm technology principles, CADY passes rhythmic vibrations to subconsciously guide a person’s gait. A person can maintain their stride by matching their “comfortable walking speed” with CADY’s haptic feedback.
The project won the “Student Notable Health & Wellness Award” from the 2020 Core77 Design Awards.
The project won an Iron Design Award winner in the 2019-2020 Differently Abled and Seniors’ Assistance Design Award.
The project was listed as commendable project by the 19-20 Royal Society of the Arts (RSA).
