postSafely modifying rollators

The challenge

Terry Tomlin of the Gloucester and Hereford panels is asking about correspondence he has seen in recent months regarding a recall of a rollator which had brakes which did not conform to the relevant standard.

He has been asked to modify a rollator to provide single-handed operation, and wishes to ensure that the braking performance conforms to the appropriate standard on completion.

He also asks whether we have free access to standards such as ISO 11199-2 which he believes is the relevant one in this case.

If anyone can advise, please email Terry at, and copy it to
