The company Ossenberg GmbH, cibX GmbH and Deutsche Telekom AG have taken up this challenge and produced an innovation in the field of walking aids.
The networked walking stick SMARTSTICK.
The light and height-adjustable everyday help in carbon optics is not only an eye-catcher, but also scores with its integrated electronics. Thanks to the built-in GSM modem, the GPS antenna and a SIM card from Deutsche Telekom, it is possible to locate the walking stick and its owners anywhere in Germany and Europe.
Whether restricted in mobility, with (initial) dementia or disorientation - the SMARTSTICK serves as a faithful companion in everyday life and as a lifeline in an emergency.

As a partner of Deutsche Telekom, we rely on the specially developed portal of the largest German telecommunications provider. For you, this means: secure storage of your data on a German server under the German Data Protection Act. And a portal with a user-friendly and clear user interface that can be operated by anyone. Do you have doubts? Then give it a try right away.


A primary advantage of our products is the integrated GPS and the associated localization function. The stick or mobile unit records its position with an accuracy of up to 10 metres and transmits it to the connected portal. A quick glance at the map is enough to see the current position of the walking aid. Let us find you for your own safety - Europe-wide without additional costs!


All our walking aids and mobile versions are equipped with a button. Among other things, this button indicates the functions, but also serves as an emergency call button. If you press the button for at least 3 seconds, an alarm message is automatically transmitted to the portal and the contact persons stored in the portal are informed within seconds. This function is possible worldwide* and is supported by a red LED and a beep.

*Additional fees may apply for use outside Europe!





The use of Geo-Fence immensely increases safe mobility in old age. With Geo-Fence it is possible to draw a virtual fence with a variable radius around the device. Especially for people with a running tendency, this function serves as additional security, since an alarm is automatically triggered when the area is exceeded and sent to the portal. Registered contact persons are informed immediately and can act directly.
