Walking Pill Box

The Walking Device and Pill Box is a pair of tools for treating and living with Parkinson's Disease.

The Walking Device is a cane designed for patients who are in early stages of the disease. Its soft, serrated wheels guide the user, helping her to anticipate and avoid any obstacles. Its elegant form is not designed to bear the user's full weight, but simply to assist and reassure. The Pill Box is a daily pill container that doubles as a hand training tool. Many Parkinson's patients gradually lose strength in their hands as the disease advances. The Pill Box encourages them keep their hands active while offering a physical reminder to take their medicine.
