Hardware and Production Engineer

Walk With Path Copenhagen Full-time

Walk With Path (WWP) is an award winning startup based in Copenhagen with a mission to improve mobility and reduce the risk of falls for elderly and people with chronic disease. With one medical device on the market in Europe and another in research and development we are a fast-moving company. We are looking for a hardware and production engineer with skills and interests in user experience design to join the team.

Due to the nature of being in a startup, we are looking for a highly motivated candidate with broad skills and interests, who are able to juggle several tasks simultaneously.

Path Feel is a Bluetooth Low Energy connected insole that provides vibrational feedback to the soles of people at risk of falls, such as those with peripheral neuropathy, who are unable to feel the ground properly due to a sensory deficit, or those with general balance issues. By amplifying the sense of touch of the feet to the ground, users are able to identify accurately when their feet touch the ground, thereby reducing the sense of imbalance as well as incidence of falls.
