In this situation, one of the biggest problems in the dimension of the eldest people is the reduction of physical function or the limitation of physical activity due to chronic diseases. Especially, the increase of the aged who live alone could be related to the importance of the maintenance of the movement ability for their independent lives. With consideration of these facts, in this study, we looked into the common activity of the aged and disabled people caused by chronic diseases or physical function disorder, and troubleshot the problems of the walking aids used in these days, and then suggested a desirable solution. 1. Stability; the rotation part and wheel 2. the control of the posture to support themselves 3.
