Liv Mobility Aid / Mobility Aid

Liv Mobility Aid
Liv Mobility Aid

This mobility aid is designed for increased safety and confidence through superior visibility and maneuverability. The user stands inside facing the open front and pulls the aid, leaving the user’s view unobstructed. The omni-directional wheels allow the aid to pivot in place without using additional floor space. The swiveling seat allows the user to sit comfortably and rotates out of the way for ambulating. The formed handles have a dual purpose; they are hand grips for walking and help the user transition in and out of different sitting situations when rotated down.
