Abstract [en]

A prototype of a novel rollator, named “Walker” on the Swedish market,was evaluated with respect to obstacle climbing, steering and generalusability. The prototype has a novel design with a triangular base and adouble front wheel on a lever arm arrangement to simplify passing acrossobstacles. Both technical tests and user tests were carried out.The main conclusion is that “Walker” is in several respectsergonomically advantageous compared to the traditional out-door rollators,especially in rough terrain and when passing obstacles. Suggestions forimprovements of certain functions of “Walker” are made, such as handlingin narrow environments and the ability to fold the rollator.
