Braun by Andre Monteiro is what you could call a high-tech walker. Its goal is to help increase the mobility of elderly people who may need some assistance to get around, but still want to maintain a sense of independence.

What's really great about Braun by Andre Monteiro is that it doesn't become a crutch, instead it promotes the user to use their own strength. The features that this walker has includes drive wheels to help walk up inclined surfaces, optional seating and a place to carry bags.

I have a feeling that Braun by Andre Monteiro will be all the rage as the baby boomers begin to get closer to the centenarian milestone.
