The author of the paper proposes manufacturing a fashionable walker for older men and women that does not look like the metal one normally used in healthcare facilities. The writer states that the reason for the proposal is the problems some older people have with the stigma attached to using a conventional walker. The writer discusses the growth in the elderly population and the increasing need for mobility assistance tools in that sector of the population. The writer also stresses the need for more research on this subject before making final decisions.
