JUNE AT FORAY DESIGN
We're a Brooklyn-based company designing tools for people with physical limitations. Our novel rolling walker, Spring, is coming to market later this year.
What We’re Doing:
This month we're putting our prototypes through static and dynamic tests. We're making fine adjustments before proceeding to large-scale manufacture.
We’re also continuing our focus groups, working to make sure our user manual is clear and easy to follow. Spring comes fully assembled and is ready to use when you take it out of the box.
Product Feature of the Month:
Spring collapses to about half the size of a comparable walker.
What We're Reading:
Barbara Ehrenreich’s: Natural Causes
A mordant commentary on wellness culture.

What We’re Learning:
People with congestive heart failure often need a walker because they quickly become short of breath. A 12-week study of people with heart failure found that people trained to walk with controlled breathing showed significant improvements in exercise tolerance, quality of life, and reduced anxiety.

What We’re Looking for:
An attractive, lightweight cross-body bag that is easy to use for a person with limited dexterity. Hanging a bag on the handles of a walker makes it top-heavy and dangerous. Elegant bags tend to be heavy or hard to use, while convenient bags are not attractive.

If you want to recommend a bag for business or leisure, email us at info@foraydesign.com.
