There is a large selection of walkers on the market for assistive devices. Some of them can be folded for easier transport. We will show you how to fold the Carbon rollator and give you some examples where a longitudinally foldable rollator has many advantages. We explain the differences between a transverse fold in standard rollators and a longitudinal fold in our Carbon Rollator.
The Saljol Carbon Rollator has a longitudinal folding. This means that the sides of the rollator are pushed together.
With only one hand, the release belt is pulled upwards over the seat net with a slight jerk. The walking aid can then be easily pushed together. The lock engages automatically when squeezed together. Thus the pinching of a finger is only very heavily possible. The pocket on the rollator should only be emptied before use. Then it is ready to be folded together with the walking aid. There is no need for time-consuming disassembly.
For a more detailed view of the folding mechanism of the Carbon Rollator, please watch our video:
To unfold, simply press the red unlocking button. Now the rollator will spring apart by itself. By pressing on the bars under the seat net, the rollator locks in place again.
A walking stick holder is fitted as standard on the Carbon rollator. It has a clamp on the outside of the frame at the top and a small basket at the bottom. The walking stick is placed there and clicked into the ferrule at the top. The cane holder does not have to be disassembled before folding. It pushes itself automatically inwards. So you can not get stuck on the basket for the cane holder and break it off. This is an advantage especially when loading the rollator into the trunk.
Due to its low weight of only 5.8kg and a width of only 22cm when folded, the Carbon Rollator is easy to store and takes up very little space.
Standard rollators, which can be covered by health insurance, have a transverse fold. This means that the front and back parts of the rollator are pulled together.
The rollator must be pulled up by the cross brace. Now the front and back parts of the walker will contract. On many models, the basket must first be removed before you can fold it up. Both hands are usually needed to push the walker completely together and then lock it. If you don't take enough care, you can easily pinch a finger.
To make the rollator ready to drive again, the lock must be released and the walking aid pulled apart. Now the basket, which was previously removed, must be reattached.
Transportation is, due to the weight and width of the folded rollator, difficult for many people. Even when folded, the rollator is still 58cm wide and weighs up to 10kg. This corresponds approximately to a bag of potting soil with 20 litres.
For stowing in a corner in the hallway or in an apartment, a cross-folder is not particularly well suited. It is very difficult and time-consuming to fold. Beyond that the folded walking aid does not remain standing correctly. By pushing the front and back together, two wheels float in the air and the walker quickly tips over.
A rollator with transverse folding is particularly difficult, if not impossible, for people who are weakened by old age or have restricted arm movement. Folding a cross-fold for transport needs time and care so that you do not pinch your fingers.
With the Saljol Carbon Rollator, which is only half as light, you are more mobile and flexible. This walking aid, with longitudinal folding, can be prepared for transport easily and quickly.
Even for people with muscle weakness or with only one functioning hand, the folding mechanism is easy to handle.
If you like to go on excursions or if you want to store the rollator easily when not in use, you should consider buying a Carbon rollator. To help you decide, take a look at our comparison table for the most common rollator models.
Let yourself be persuaded to spontaneous excursions with our Saljol Carbon Rollator and have fun in life.
