Jeannie commented on Getting Out of The Car

Yes, Kate, we are also making our prototype and have even tested the inflating part to "boost" one up out of the bucket car seat.

With a "+" & "-" button push the seat cushion would inflate or deflate and assist the seated passenger out of the seat after pivoting to face the door.

Just wait for the presentation of the diagram and prototype!


Jeannie commented on Designing a better walker

We are working on not only a more "sexy" walker but a light one that deals with bumpy roads and getting over small humps. Keep your eyes open for our refined design!


Jeannie commented on Keeping PLAY in our loves as we age

Gretchen, Where is this playground pictured? When I was traveling around the world, my kids and I saw some adult playgrounds in China. They were obviously well-used, and still operating when we were there, so perhaps it's not a new concept in China. Early every morning elderly people would get up, drink tea, and walk around the neighborhood, exercise - qi gong and / or the playgrounds. My kids even used the equipment but they were obviously for adults.
