Ever since I started using a walker I have developed a stooping posture which has worsened over time. Other walker-users here seem to be similarly afflicted. I’ve come to the conclusion, rightly or wrongly, that the handles, being aligned parallel to the ground, are contributing to the problem. I think it would be better if the handles were sloping downward at the back end in such a way that one would be pushing the walker forward more easily, instead of downward into the ground causing the shoulders to hunch up. I’ve no idea if this arrangement would be medically acceptable.

I wonder if any of your Longevity Explorers would consider looking into the design of walkers taking my comments in mind.
