Strida without pedals as a mobility walking aid?
Guys you have to trust me now but I found this one today.
I have a bad balance and each winter I always fall on snowy streets.
So what are the alternatives. Using a wheeled Walker/Rollator
or using a Mobility Scooter which are very expensive and need
some kind of Garage or indoor place for protection from snow
Now a rollator does not help much if one have knee pain.
So I came to think of what they use for children before
they have the proper balance for a pedal bicycle.
They use Balance Bikes of different brands. Stryder LikeaBike
and whatever names these have. Basically a standard Bike
without the pedals. One can even take out the pedals of
an ordinary bike for kids and use that one.
So I looked for grown up versions that is easy to fold
and can be used at winter and that could be accepted
indoors at Mall/ShoppingCenters. I found this one.
You see a standard Chinese? very cheap Rollator I bought one for only
600SEK and the European versions cost three or five times that price.

And below the Rollator you see their alternative that they used
for to test if it is a good alternative to the Rollator/Walker and
their conclusion is that for some it is the best alternative
So I wanted to know the name of the company and the Model name.
To find out the specifications and if it exist in Sweden.
So I tried out different search keywords and suddenly found this patent.
I hope he read this and join us and share how he came up with
A supportive medical walking aid for indoor use
consisting of two small caster wheels located in-line
with adjustable, collapsible seat and handle bars.
