Uniscan Preview Concept Models at Naidex 2005
05 May 2005
Uniscan Limited, the Essex based Walking Frame Manufacturer are previewing 3 concept walker models at the Naidex Exhibition, NEC Birmingham in Hall 19, stand F93 on May 24th - 26th 2005.

All 3 models are the result of extensive customer research and collaboration with a variety of industry professionals. Each of the new models will be targeted at a specific audience with particular needs.

The 'Grand Glider Plus Adjustable'
The first concept model is a bariatric walker. Designed to provide freedom, independence and confidence for the larger framed user it includes all the features of the successful Glider Plus Adjustable model but with added strength. The 'Grand GPA' is 4" wider than Uniscan's standard width walker measuring almost 74cm (29") in total width and providing a maximum hip width of 54cm (21") when the user is seated. Manufactured from high tensile aluminium the frame structure has been strengthened and whilst the overall weight of the walker has increased it remains light in weight for its size and capacity. Fitted with a larger padded seat the 'Grand GPA' is available in a choice of 4 colours with a stronger pressure braking system as standard and has a maximum user weight capacity of 254kg (40stones). Once folded, the 'Grand GPA' will fit into most medium size family saloon cars for easy transportation.

The Uniscan 'Verso'
The second model to be previewed is an incredibly versatile walker targeted at toddlers and the smaller user. The 'Verso' is a totally new design concept featuring a number of unique and innovative ideas. Due to its clever design the 'Verso' can be used conventionally as a pulpit rollator or pulled along behind the user to prevent backward over balancing. In either mode the 'Verso' features an integral rest seat which folds neatly for storage whilst the user is walking. Fitted with adjustable height handles and available in a selection of seat heights from as low as 30cm (12") the 'Verso' offers a versatile walker platform across a spectrum of requirements. Manufactured from high tensile aluminium the 'Verso' range will provide a lightweight, stable and secure solution for the smaller user whilst allowing design flexibility for larger versions as user needs develop. The 'Verso' is available in a choice of 4 bright and cheerful colours and is fitted with a pressure braking system, which can be changed to suit the user weight. The 'Verso' walker will fold for storage and with its unique design it provides the ultimate in versatility.

Another first for Uniscan the 'Shoprolla' offers the safety and stability of a rollator walking frame in combination with the carrying capacity of a pull along shopping trolley. This new design brings another dimension to the rollator concept embracing safety and practicality in a clever package. A large shopping bag is suspended under the rest seat providing a practical and useful amount of shopping storage space. The 'Shoprolla' is lightweight (6.5kg - 14lbs) and strong (max user weight 127kg - 20stones), folds neatly for storage and transportation and will stand unsupported when folded. Fitted with the Uniscan locking lever brake system the 'Shoprolla' benefits from adjustable height handles, a large rest seat with a zipped and lined pocket underneath and a padded back rest. The 'Shoprolla' offers a safe alternative to standard shopping trolleys whilst combining all the health and safety benefits of a rollator walking frame.
