I have problems like the rest of you and thought this little cart would solve my problems. It could of been worse. I had both knees operated on several years ago and my doctor told me not to kneel. If I bend now my lower back and coccyx start to hurt so I got his cart took it out and landed up on the ground I guess just a little incline it will tip. I haven't tried it again since. I probably didn't position myself properly. What I am saying is if you are trying something new I would have someone near just in case.

For me, it would be about having something very solid nearby so I could get myself upright again.

So many of the so-called 'aids' for folk with mobility issues seem to have been designed by people who have no problems to speak of.

If there's room in your garden, would something like an adult tricycle with a built-in trunk or a hitch coupling be of any use?

Thanks for the timely warning. I shall definitely keep up my fitness so I don't end with bumps and bruises when the inevitable accident occurs.
