MODIFIED ROLLATOR WALKER

A modified rollator walker with extended lower section.

DESCRIPTION

The rollator has been taken apart and welded back together. The front wheels have been moved forward, extended with tubes. The bottom is now a platform on which a basket can be mounted. The rollator became more stable when the bottom was extended and no longer tips forward. An ordinary plastic box is attached to the platform. The plastic box should be 60-70 cm long. The rollator could no longer be folded up after it was modified.

TIPSTER’S COMMENTS

I do not have any plans for the rollator. My father-in-law rebuilt it. We brainstormed to come up with the idea to make it. I bought a second-hand rollator online that was made of iron (does not weld as effectively as aluminum). It is easier to extend the rollator if it is originally designed with a platform; examples of such walkers include: Human CareRebel and Human CareCarlOskar. The rollator I bought was not designed this way, but my father-in-law figured it out anyway.
