Flexio / walker


Flexio, utilizing universal balls, which can be stopped rolling by pressure, makes a walker easier for the elders or patients without enough vigor to use.
It is not necessary for the users to lift the walker anymore. They only need push walker slightly and rest on the walker. The pressure from body weight will make the balls stop moving.
Moreover, Flexio also provides a seat. Unlike the traditional walker with wheals, The users do not need brakes to stop rolling but simply sit down. Their body weight will make the balls inactive naturally.
