Safety System
This was my minor project for my BA Product Design course 2 years ago. I would like to now share it.

Solution

This safety system is aimed at the elderly when manoeuvring on the stairs. This device is suitable for any private dwelling or care home and can be installed as a retro fir or within a new build. A camera is used to recognise and analyse the first stages of a potential fall. If the user is at risk an airbag will be deployed, acting to reduce the impact force and speed of the descent.
