What If We Started Using Baby Strollers for Balance Instead of Walkers?
The other day I was driving by someone taking their grandchild out for a stroll. Shortly thereafter I visited an assisted living community with a large group of residents gathering with their “walkers”. It occurred to me that the stroller has a more positive stigma in our culture, so what if we started re-purposing their use?
Lets face it, the walker technology has not advanced at close to the pace of strollers! Today’s strollers are lightweight, attractive ergonomic, and they can fold down easily with the push of one button.
In addition, a stroller could be easily used to go on a grocery shopping trip, while a walker it might be rather dangerous carrying bags of groceries.
Do you know anyone that has re-purposed a stroller for this use? I may try to explore this concept in some future posts!
