Features and Benefits:
Advanced Braking System
The Active walker has a patented braking system that puts safety first. The brake cables are protected and hidden safely away inside the walker frame. The brakes stay in perfect adjustment no matter which position the handles in, and there is no need for re-adjusting. When it is time for adjustment, there is a convenient allen screw located in the rear leg profil, and with a quick turn of the included wrench the brakes can easily be adjusted to accommodate for wear.
Large front wheels
Why stop walking when the terrrain gets rough? Large 25cm (10 inch) diameter front wheels let the Active roll over uneven terrain, sidewalk cracks, and door threshholds that make other rollators stop in their tracks. The Active travels just as well over gravel paths as it does smooth tile floors. But maneuverability was always a key issue for the designers of the Active. By using smaller 8 inch (20 cm) diameter back wheels, the Active retains its incredible maneuverability and tight turning radius that make it a great walking aid in the home, where space is limited.
Unlike other walkers that place a metal basket in front of the seat, the Active utilizes the space under the seat with a handy optional removable basket. With a capacity of 14 liters, there is enough room for a handbag, newspaper, food items and more. The seat protects the contents of the basket both from the weather and opportunistic theft. Flip the seat up to access the contents of the basket, or take the basket out with the convenient carry handles.
Even with the large front wheels, there are always obstacles that are too big to just roll over. But you don’t have to pick up the walker to get up that curb. Just step down on the curb climber and with a gentle pull back on the handles, the Active walker will raise its front wheels to easily maneuver over larger obstacles.
Easy Seat adjustment
The Active walker is the first walker in the world to have an adjustable seat height. The seat can be moved into one of 4 positions to suit the user or the situation. It takes just seconds using the patented quick-release adjustment levers to move the seat into the desired position.
Standing Parking position
When the walker isn’t in use, it doesn’t use up valuable space. A single easy lever folds and locks the Active into its convenient parking position. Not only can the lightweight Active easily be stowed into a vehicle, it also stands on its own in the parking position. This means that it is always ready to use when needed.
Safety is always a concern. Walking at night or in low visibility situations can be dangerous if you aren’t seen by traffic. The Active optional sports built-in red reflectors in the handles, and reflective tape on the frame to give all round visibility when you need it most.
