The Guido is a robotic walker that provides navigation and obstacle-avoidance assistance. Engineering tests have found that the device performs adequately and presents no hazard to the user. The performance of the Guido was compared with a low-tech mobility aid, the Assistive Mobility Device (AMD) developed at the Atlanta Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, in trials involving older adults with visual impairments. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the Guido could… CONTINUE READING
