(FR) Dispositif contribuant à détecter un mouvement indésirable, par exemple, un déséquilibre, chez un individu, tel qu'une personne âgée atteinte de proprioception augmentée. Ce dispositif est constitué d'un corps conçu pour être placé dans une zone cible de cet individu. Il comporte un premier et un deuxième capteurs placés à l'intérieur du corps, ainsi qu'un premier et un deuxième éléments vibrants, de sorte que, quand un des capteurs est incurvé sur une distance prédéterminée, un signal de contrôle est transmis à l'élément vibrant respectif afin de provoquer sa vibration pendant une durée prédéterminée, ce qui permet d'avertir l'individu d'un mouvement inadéquat dans la zone cible avant l'apparition d'une blessure.
