Older people, especially when it comes to the bathroom area, require a great deal of adequate support and physical security. In spite of the various innovative designs of modern bathrooms, the seniors still find it a difficult place to land in for varied reasons. Look at the five bathroom accessories carefully designed for the aged.

4. Jang Wooseok’s Zombie Slippers:
The danger of not putting the slippers properly due to early morning drowsiness, especially for elder people, can now be let alone by these new open faced, rectangular shaped slippers by the Korean designer, Jang Wooseok.
