The Last Car A Senior Needs to Drive
I was listening to an interview with Jeremy Knowpow, a product designer and mechanical engineer. He was talking about a new walker called the Motivo Tour. Jeremy said that “walkers have not been re-imagined since the 1940’s when the walker was created by the US military for rehabbing injured soldiers.” That spurned a two-year innovation process where he spoke to doctors, nurses, rehab operators, physical therapists, caregivers, senior living communities and seniors who were using a mobility product. He asked all of them the same question, What would you ideally like to have in a new mobility product? He got a lot of answers. His research lead to the creation of a proprietary product that features a sleek colorful design that people could feel good about using. It incorporates adjustable handlebars that encourage an upright stance to prevent from hunching over, functionality features like a flip out comfortable seat, built in storage for a purse oxygen tank or everyday essentials, a built-in tray and the ability to easily store by folding tightly. I could not wait to get home and google Motivo Tour right away.
My partner, Lorri in Philadelphia, and I were so excited about this new walker that we connected with Jeremy and he sent us each a sample. The Motivo Tour is sexy, modern, easy to use and has so many extra perks. Not only is it made well but is much safer and sturdier than other options. This would make a great present for any senior that uses a walker for the holidays not to mention they would become a trendsetter.
