We focused on the older people’s needs and problems, when taking a rest in public realm. The older people demand frequent and short resting time. Therefore, we design and create the armrest has many functions on the chair. No matter where elderly people stay on the public realm, for instance, the waiting room of hospital, the elevator, the park, the bus station, etc.
