Abstract Walkers are important devices that aid the rehabilitation process. The use of a walker is recommended for gait changes and imbalance due to various factors, such as surgery of the lower limbs or neurodegenerative changes, especially in the early recovery period. In this project we design a solution for the patient using walkers, this device helps them to maintain the proper balance. The system's foundation lies in a network of strategically placed sensors, including gyroscopes, accelerometers, and pressure sensors, meticulously capturing data on the user's body posture and gait patterns. This device will automatically warn the user when they apply more pressure on a single side using haptic feedback. Along with this, we included the automatic fall detection system using MEMS Sensor, if the sensor reaches its threshold value, it’ll automatically send an Emergency SMS along with their current location to the caretaker/doctors. The exterior has been updated and additionally includes an LED light and switch. The switch will allow the user of the Effective Walker tool to turn it on and off in an easy-to-use way. The Effective Walker device's switch improves its ecological performance by enabling user to remotely turn it off whenever not in use. The system's foundation lies in a network of strategically placed sensors, including gyroscopes, accelerometers, and pressure sensors, meticulously capturing data on the user's body posture and gait patterns. Employing advanced algorithms, the gathered data is processed and analyzed in real-time to evaluate the user's alignment and identify any deviations from the ideal posture. Furthermore, the system facilitates seamless data recording and analysis, enabling healthcare professionals and physiotherapists to access valuable insights on the user's progress and performance. The accumulated data assists in developing personalized rehabilitation plans and tracking the user's improvements over time.
