E-Walker / Walking Aids

Changes to the aging society are currently causing various forms of elderly problems. Among these changes, one of the biggest problem of elderly people is the restriction of mobility because of the deterioration of physical function and chronic diseases. However, there is lack of service provided according to the characteristics of the elderly. Reflecting this problem, we introduced an idea that enables the elderly to overcome sidewalk blocks and obstacles without much effort by applying the center of gravity of a reclining chair to the product.
