Description

The journey of aging has robbed many of the freedom to enjoy independent living in the home. Reduced mobility has prevented many elders the privilege of being able to enjoy a meal at the table with the people they love. A family caregiver, often an aging spouse or an adult child, must push-pull-shove-twist to get the seated person up to or away from the table. This presents a greater risk of personal injury to the caregiver. So, how should a caregiver get a seated person up-to and away-from the table with ease and without risk of personal injury? We believe that, by design, dining chairs should swivel…turn …roll …and lock for safety.

Description

Recent research has shown that balance can be quickly improved in older Americans-- if they were to simply incorporate different moves into their fitness activities. Just as there are three dimensions to the physical world, so, too, there are three planes of human movement. Yet, in daily life, most seniors move in one plane only: the sagittal plane. This creates strength imbalances that lead to injury, pain, decreased balance, and increased risk of falling. The good news? Adding a simple 3D fitness element has been clinically shown to dramatically increase balance in as little as 4 weeks.
