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.”oxo-garden-stool2

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.

I just clicked on the link in this post and went to the original website featuring the chair. If you go to the comments below the product you’ll see a note written by the designer appealing to the company to remove the Oxo logo. Skulduggery afoot?

Pennsylvania and Florida are the 2 states in the US with the highest number of aging population. If someone with more knowledge than I could figure out how to apply public pressure to OXO to remove their logo from this item. Until then I’m forced to buy an all metal. 40 pound, $99.00 rolling gardening seat from Lee Valley, which my husband will have to carry to my gardens for me! So much for independence…..
