Outline

This new trolley is specially developped for elders. With four-wheel caster, it can be used by pushing forward at their side and also by pulling at their behind, like a suitcase. Usually, this "switching" creates a height gap for positions where they feel confortable handling a trolley. Existing products only has push-button type height adjustment mechanism, which is unhandy and not many elders use always and often end up using the trolley at unappropriate position. Therefore, we have introduced this product with two separate grips for pushing and pulling. This helps the user to use the trolley at confortable height always, freeing them from any height adjustment but just swapping the hold to the specified grips.
