Walkers are getting better
For people with a disability or unsteady on their feet, there are new walking aids.  With traditional walkers or rollators, a problem can arise for a number of users if they bend forward and in so doing carry their weight on their arms and hands.  This can result in pain.   Such users are soon walking with a hunched back.  A solution to this issue is a taller, upright walker, which enables walking with an upright posture.  Apart from improving posture there is the potential cardiovascular improvement and it is easier to look forward and see people.

Israel has positively been progressing in the FemTech sector, making headlines in women’s health. While the industry is still developing globally, Israel already has around 100 local companies in the FemTech sector.
