Silver Surfing

Silver Surfing

HERE’S a novel twist on traditional mobility aids for the elderly – a skateboard-style Zimmer frame with wheels.

But it is actually designed for pensioners who want to opt for something a little more speedy than the traditional four-footed frame which is normally more associated with hospitals than pavement-surfing.
British company Micro Scooters, which manufactures the new £100 vehicle, claims it was developed in response to “huge demand” from grandmas and granddads who wanted to take their grandchildren to school, but found they were struggling to keep pace.
