The Eureka Springs InvenTeam will create a light weight, easy to use and durable walking cane, called the LifeCane. Our invention will have a GPS feature that will enable the injured, lost, or missing user to be quickly and efficiently located by search and rescue personnel. In addition to its built-in fall alert system, our LifeCane will also have lights to enable navigation in the dark and to avoid hazards. Our life-saving device will cost less than $100.00. Additional LifeCane applications include finding skiers lost in avalanches.
