The easy way for elderly to keep healthy and mobile is to do a short walk. Although a short walk can be considered as light exercise, the elderly need to break their walk into manageable distances, take some rest for small intervals, enjoy the surroundings. Unfortunately, public seating is not placed frequently enough around rest homes and retirement villages. To solve this, designer Nichola Trudgen has come up with a simple yet effective solution name Wanderest.

“The Wanderest is a seat or leaner that attaches to existing circular or octagonal lamp posts situated in retirement areas where there is little or no public seating. It is designed to allow elderly people who need light exercise to stay healthy, break up there walks into manageable lamppost – to- lamppost distances. This design won a 2009 Best Design Bronze Award, a 2009 IDA Urban Sustainable Design Award and was exhibited at the 2010 Imm Cologne Furniture fair.” – Nichola Trudgen
