Lola - Walking Aid / Products and Applications

Lola - Walking Aid
Lola - Walking Aid

Lola is a walking aid developed based on interviews with women between 68 and 90 years old, healthcare professionals and caretakers. Lola has a handle, which can be combined with legs in different sizes and with a seat-leg. The aim is to encourage women with walking issues to have long strolls. The seat-leg works as a perching stool when opened, which enables a person to ‘semi-seat’ and to have an easier standing up from the seating position. The triangular profile prevents the cane to slide away when standing on furniture without use of accessories. The grip helps when holding on stair rails or when the cane is not directly used.
