Nike Unveils Hands-Free Sneakers For Those With Special Needs
[Source: Nike News]
With an eye toward making shoes even more accessible to people with disabilities, Nike is introducing a sneaker that can be taken on and off completely hands-free.
The shoe known as the Nike GO FlyEase is part of Nike’s FlyEase collection of adaptive styles.
Building on how a person might kick off a shoe, Nike designers incorporated a bi-stable hinge and a tensioner — which works like a big rubber band — to allow the shoe to smoothly open and close, remaining secure in both positions.
