Walking Aid for Overweight Individuals Invented by InventHelp® Client (AAT-1610)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp attempts to submit an invention, Get Moving Mobility Cart, to companies for review.

If you or someone you know has difficulty walking because of obesity, help is on the way. Because of the creativity of an inventor from Wrightsville, Ga., there is now an improved walking aid available.

She developed GET MOVING MOBILITY CART to afford more support than a conventional walker and provide a hands-free way to transport beverages, food or other items. For overweight individuals, it greatly reduces pressure on the back and lower body when walking. Therefore, it provides an easier way to move around for those who are overweight and need help walking. As such, it reduces accidents for those who are at risk for falling. Furthermore, it affords more independence for overweight people since they can now move about unassisted. It is also designed for durability, safety and affordability. In addition, it is convenient, easy to use, practical and effective.

The inventor's personal experience inspired this idea. "Because I have a weight problem, I had difficulty walking and performing basic personal care activities," she said. "I thought this device would make it easier for people in my situation to get around and function more independently."

The original design was submitted to the Atlanta office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
