  • B-Shoe | Anti-falling shoe for the elderly

    The B-Shoe hopes to prevent seniors from falling down

    Each second in the U.S., an older adult takes a fall, accounting for more than 27,000 deaths from falling among older individuals, according to the CDC. A company based in Haifa, Israel, however, is working on a way to prevent those falls in the first place.

    I can tell you about what it’s like to be a guy who was once in shape and is not. When I was in my 20s, I was a slim yet hunky piece of man flesh. I had a defined jaw, broad chest, and a single chin. Now, however, at the beginning of my 30s, I find a second chin resting firmly between my face and neck. I do not like this chin, as it makes me look older than my real age. I also do not… Read More
