Answers to my EQs

1.What are the difficulties in mobility
 faced by the elderly.
- Elderly have a hard time getting from place to place as their legs aren't as strong as they used to be.

2.What are some of the things that already help the elderly and are there any flaws in them?
-The walker
Pros: It helps the elderly move about. It has 4 legs and thus provides more balance and support. It is relatively light.
Cons: It has 4 legs so it makes it hard to carry around and hard to bring into narrow spaces. This also makes it hard for the elderly to sit down.

3.How can we help the elderly and make their lives easier?
-We design a slimmer and bendable walker that does not restrict much movement.
