Bond cleverly disguises itself as an umbrella to tackle a common resistance amongst the elderly who are stigmatised when using a walking stick. Its innovation went beyond promoting mobility, it also multi-tasks as a device to improve mental and emotional capacities. The built-in MP3 Player-cum-Radio aims to reduce the rate of dementia deterioration by increasing their levels of physical, mental and emotional functioning through sensory stimulations. Its lightweight Anti-Slip Self-Standing tip is carefully engineered with raw material imported from Germany to promote natural walking motion. The intelligent Auto-Fall Alarm empowers the user to call for help, thus bringing peace of mind to their caregivers.
The name, Bond, was deliberately chosen as it aspires to create bonding among the elderly with their friends and family. Elderly can play their favourite exercise tunes when they meet with their fellow buddies in the park. Nursery rhymes can also be downloaded to promote interaction with their grandchildren. With its seamless integration of a multi-feature system encased in a tastefully design, the walking stick is reminiscent of James Bond and his spy gadgetry.
