Dextrous Ambulation Aids

The PARTNIKU Walker is Dynamic, Adjustable and Includes Storage Space

— October 9, 2014 — Art & Design
There is certainly standard walker available to seniors requiring some assistance getting around, but the designers of the PARTNIKU Walker went out of their way to come up with a brand new formula. Striving to forget the way that the typical piece of equipment is composed, the duo developed an alternative that greatly improves upon existing models.

Yoo Young-Hoon and Yoo Seong-Ik began with a very stable base that comprises four sets of two wheels. These would be larger and feature better grip than the norm, enabling the user to venture off the beaten track. Depending on the height of the person, the PARTNIKU Walker can be heightened or lowered with the separation of the wheeled frame. In its lowest position, the collapsable support trolly can become a convenient chair to welcome some rest.
Trend Themes
1. Dynamic Ambulation Aids - The development of ambulation aids with adjustable height and enhanced stability provides opportunities for dynamic support in mobility.
2. Enhanced Grip Wheels - The incorporation of larger wheels with improved grip on ambulation aids opens up possibilities for off-road mobility and increased maneuverability.
3. Multipurpose Support Equipment - The design of ambulation aids that can transform into collapsible chairs presents innovative opportunities for versatile and portable support solutions.
Industry Implications
1. Medical Equipment Manufacturing - Manufacturers in the medical equipment industry can explore the creation of dynamic ambulation aids with adjustable features and enhanced stability.
2. Mobility Assistance Services - Providers of mobility assistance services can consider offering ambulation aids with larger wheels and improved grip for off-road mobility solutions.
3. Furniture and Home Living - Companies in the furniture and home living industry can tap into the market of multipurpose support equipment by developing ambulation aids that can transform into collapsible chairs.
