Improved Mobility Aid Invented by InventHelp Client (PIT-213)

Share Article

InventHelp, a leading invention submission firm, is submitting THE TOMMY WALKER to appropriate companies for their review.

While conventional walkers afford considerable help with mobility, their design does not allow for assistance with kneeling or provide ready access to exercise weights. Fortunately, an inventor from Uniontown, Pa., has found a way to address those needs.

He developed a prototype for THE TOMMY WALKER to enhance the benefits of a standard walker to improve the user’s quality of life. To begin with, this improved mobility aid eliminates the obstruction caused by the horizontal bar found on a conventional walker. As such, it promotes an increased level of independence. Furthermore, it allows patient to kneel down to enjoy activities like gardening. Besides that, it is safe, convenient and comfortable. At the same time, it is effective, durable and affordably priced. Also, it is ideal for use in rehabilitation programs. In addition, it keeps exercise weights within easy reach.

The inventor’s personal interest inspired the idea. “I wanted to improve the conventional walker used by those who have difficulty walking. This improved design allows users to manipulate the unit easier for walking and also rely on it for lowering themselves to a kneeling position and then returning to a standing position,” he said.

The original design was submitted to the Pittsburgh 2 office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
