    I will look more fully when I get home from farmers market! But I did notice those flimsy wheels. I answered you so I could mention that my puppy looks like the picture!

    I canít find a price on the website (bad sign), nor a place one could go see it, feel it. Maybe I will call the toll free number.

    I looked it up and found a discussion about price on their FB page.

    Looks to be somewhere between $700 -$800, including shipping.

    Looks interesting!

    It would be an improvement over traditional walkers and rollators by preventing you from leaning forward. I have to keep reminding myself not to lean into the rollator as I move around because your arms have to be held out in front of you just to propel it, and there's a natural tendency to lean into your arms, I guess.

    Also, you can't really use it outdoors. It says it can be used outdoors "in ADA-compliant environments." Not sure how ADA-compliant most environments outdoors would be.

    It's great that manufacturers seem to be trying to address the complex problems people with conditions like MS have by coming up with products with different designs. It's nice that this one weighs only 15 lbs.

    If I weren't too short for it, I'd be really tempted. It's for people 5' tall and over.

    I don’t see how it would prevent a fall. It looks like you could fall forward and land w the thing on your back.

    I guess the selling feature is the belt that let’s you have your hands free.

    And if you fall forward with the thing on your back, it's probably strapped onto you with that belt. It might not be so easy to get yourself out from under it.

    There must be a way to keep upright with something that cost that much money. Who would want to pay that much for something if they could fall and it end up on top of them?

    Thumbs up

    I couldn't use it. The most walking I do is walk into the grocery store, then walk back to my car. I would have to load that into the car from home, then unload it at the store, just to walk inside the store.

    Once inside the store, I use their motorized shopping carts. What would I do with that while using the carts. Park it at the front door? I don't think so. Then I would have to load it in the car and drive home. Too much extra work.

    I have a system that works now. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
