How heavy is the Carbon rollator?
The Saljol Carbon Rollator weighs 5.8 kg including the bag. Without the bag the rollator weighs less than 5kg. The 5kg correspond to approx. 5 bottles of water. This means that the Saljol Carbon Rollator is one of the lightest rollators in its class.
For comparison, standard rollators with basket weigh between 8 and 10 kg. This corresponds to approximately one box of water.
Basically, the weight of a rollator should not be too low, so the risk of falling can be kept as low as possible. The Carbon Rollator from Saljol has an ideal weight distribution, it is optimally balanced and floor-heavy.
Can I fold and unfold the Carbon Rollator?
Yes, you can fold the Saljol Carbon Rollator.
The Carbon Rollator can be folded lengthwise. This means that the sides of the rollator contract. All you have to do is pull the release belt on the seat net upwards with a slight jerk. The rollator folds up easily. The rollator locks itself automatically. This means it cannot jump up by itself.
To unfold, simply press the rotel locking button. The rollator automatically pops up and you can fix it under the seat net by pressing the bars. The ride can begin.
The folding makes the rollator only 22cm narrow. This makes it easy to store and transport.

Is the Carbon Rollator covered by my health insurance or can I apply for a subsidy?

It can be purchased free of charge, i.e. without a doctor's prescription. Whether your health or care insurance company co-finances part of the rollator is always decided by the insurance companies on a case-by-case basis.
