Empathik concept features a mobility aid for elderly people and a shopping trolley, so it’s not just a walking frame. Conventional walking frames are usually ugly in design and less flexible, this project integrates a light weight material as the main structure with visually appealing design and ergonomic forms to easily adapt to human body. Its flexibility level allows this concept together with the user to adapt to different environments and situations.
This project aims to provide a modern walking frame to support elderly people to maintain their active lifestyle. It’s meant to motivate and encourage senior citizens to do outdoor activities to improve their outdoor experiences along with families and communities.
