Strata / Assistive walker


Strata is an assistive walker that does more; it is aesthetically integrated into the home and helps seniors remain independent. The walker promotes certain tasks, eliminates the stigma that is assigned to conventional walkers, and helps the user get up and down independently. Strata's elegant and compact form blends into the environment of a home yet makes an assuring statement that mobility and daily activities are not sacrificed but promoted.
