Discussion Summary

Explorer Barbara referred to a previous meeting in which a member complained that shopping in grocery and other stores could be uncomfortable due to the lack of seating for those who need a short break.

She introduces the group to the idea of the Archelis wearable chair, a yet-to-be-sold product designed for surgeons and others who must stand at their work. Another member compared it to the cane seat seen at 'show and tell' last meeting.
