Looking at the Safety, Environment and Health

of elderly. Among 86% of the elderly who walk with a zimmerframe, use it wrong. 65% of fall accidents amongst elderly happen at home.

 

Why are so many people fighting against the zimmerframe?

What is the big difference between walking sticks, shopping cars, prams and a zimmerframe?

 

I want to create a new definition for the zimmerframe.

looking at the following aspects:

  • Stigma

Zimmerframe? 

I rather sit at home, then walk with the zimmerframe.

When you walk with a zimmerframe, you know for sure you are old. When you leave the house with a zimmerframe,

you have to encounter so many things.

Inside home, I walk normal, holding myself

on the furniture. After falling 9 times, I accepted that I need to walk with a zimmerframe. I used to walk every day, together with my wife. I can’t hold my umbrella while walking with a zimmerframe.
