Age-Friendly Gardening Chair Understands Ageing Bodies
January 21, 2013 | By Kim Walker
Although only a concept design, the thinking is age-friendly.
I checked the OXO website and although they are certainly extending their line of products beyond their roots of kitchen utensils, a search for this the gardening chair returns “We’re sorry, your search did not result in any matches.”
Be that as it may, the design deserves mention for it’s understanding of ageing physiology.
The rolling garden chair is adjustable and portable, featuring a core steel-spring mechanism to adjust the height from 14 to 18 inches while also providing suspension. For stability, balance, and comfort, the seat and grips are shaped to adapt to the user’s body contour.
Three spring-loaded wheels in the seat’s rounded base offer a large range of motion and make it easy to manoeuvre, retracting into the base when the user is seated to support rocking and leaning.
