Abstract:
A walker comprising wheels movably supporting the main body, a crank rotation-drivably attached to a position which is coaxial with the wheels and which does not interfere with the rotation of the wheels, and an arm attached to a portion offset from the axis of the crank and capable of being driven on a footing provided by the crank in a direction in which its front end is moved away from the axis, the arm having a ground-engaging body attached to the front end thereof so that during movement the ground-engaging body is caused to engage the ground to allow the main body to be raised together with the wheels, thus making compact assembly around the axle and stabilized operation possible.
