From Electric Walking Frames to Mobile Senior Seats

With old buildings not brought up to code and public infrastructure struggling to keep up with the demands of the aging baby boomer population, personal mobility devices are becoming more capable at enabling seniors citizens to become more self-sufficient.

These walkers, scooters and canes get a high-tech twist and help to provide seniors with independence as well as additional balance, emergency aid and seating when necessary. Numerous redesigns to the classic wheelchair have been made so that they're even more comfortable, ergonomic, easy to handle and more powerful than ever before. Some of these souped-up designs tack on crazy wheels and other add-ons so that they're better able to handle some rather youthful adventures outside of the senior's home in the great wide open outdoors.
