Verily working on smart shoe prototype that can track your health

Author:   |    Publish date:


As reported by CNBC, Alphabet research company Verily has been looking for partners to co-develop a pair of smart shoes that can track a wearer's weight and detect falls.
 
Verily, the branch under Google's parent company Alphabet previously known as Google Life Sciences, has allegedly been showing off a pair of prototype smart shoes to potential partners who could aid in the development of the intelligent sneaks, according to CNBC who spoke with three individuals familiar with the matter.
 
These kicks supposedly kick the tech up several notches higher than Puma's updated RS-Computer shoes or Nike's HyperAdapt self-lacing shoes. CNBC's sources claim that the prototype set is embedded with sensors that can "monitor the wearer's movement and weight, as well as ... measure falls", not unlike the fall detection feature that Apple integrated into its latest Apple Watch.
 
The weight-tracking feature could potentially be used to prevent life-threatening conditions like congestive heart failure by alerting wearers to sudden weight gain, a common symptom of the malady resulting from internal fluid retention.
 
Whether or not Verily is still pursuing this project is currently unknown, though according to CNBC, the company has recruited "dozens of engineers, scientists and health experts to its ranks" who could be working on the private project. If the shoes do, in fact, make it to production, they could be immensely beneficial to seniors in particular.
