CURRENT ROLLATOR PROBLEMS

 

1. Chronic mobility issues
     On rough surfaces, the rollator vibrates uncontrollably 

 

2. Social stigma
     Current rollators makes the user feel old

3. Brakes 
     Hard to squeeze and the wheels slip anyway

4. Portability
     Does not fold to a size that can easily be put in a car
