Camminta / Auxiliary device for seniors

Camminta
Camminta

Camminta is a new concept of auxiliary device to mobility of the elderly. By 2025 Brazil will be the sixth largest number of elderly in the world. This object brings a greater aesthetic appeal and shape using a new impact absorption system, providing greater comfort in the joints and enhancing the energy of walking. It also features a comfortable grip for the hands, to suit different people and formats, a height adjustment that covers the difference between people, and a non-slip material on the bottom, which prevents falls and other accidents. The shape is light and compact and has an intuitive use for a better understanding of the elderly.
