TriWheel walker wheel system, intended to make the use of walkers more safe and easier to use on rough or uneven surfaces.
TriWheel replaces the single wheel assembly on walker legs with three wheels mounted on a triangular base that rotates as necessary to travel over rough surfaces without having to lift the walker. Optional additional flexible track fits around the three wheels for additional surface adaptability.
Baseplate: Equilateral triangle with holes at each corner of the triangle to mount wheels and a hole in the center to mount the assembly to the adjustable leg of the walker.
Baseplate with wheels and walker leg extension depicted. Dashed line around wheels represents optional flexible track. Assembly size flexible based on application, this example is based on a triangle with 5” sides and 3” wheels.
