As part of its UK debut, Rollz Mobility UK will be launching the Rollz Motion Rhythm.
Designers have described how the Rollz Motion Rhythm aims to build on the global success of the Rollz Motion and has been developed to help people living with Parkinson’s and similar neurological conditions which can result in a disrupted gait pattern or episodes of freezing.
To help deal with these episodes, the Rollz Motion Rhythm features three rhythmic cues which combine to help the user step out of a freeze and start a rhythmic walking movement.
The three cues consist of a laser line on the floor, a ticking metronome sound and a vibration in the handles.
Arjan Muis, CEO of Rollz International, commented: “We are delighted to be launching the Rollz Motion Rhythm as part of our UK debut at Naidex 2020. At Rollz, we believe in always listening to feedback from our customers and retailers and the Rollz Motion Rhythm has been developed in response to requests for a rollator which addresses the needs and offers support to people living with Parkinson’s.”
Adding: “Freezing symptoms make walking difficult and the three cues on this rollator will increase the user’s confidence when going outdoors which can lead to a more active and independent lifestyle. Thanks to the Smart technology, everything can be easily set up via a smart phone.”
The Rollz Motion Rhythm is a specialized version of the standard Rollz Motion and comes with a 5-year warranty on the frame and 2-year warranty on others parts with exception of normal wear and tear.
