Walker that can clear steps
This is an invention that I designed for MASE 311 Machine Design. The problem is that most walkers used by the elderly are difficult to make it past steps. That is why I designed a walker that can walk up or down a single step smoothly and causing no risk to the elderly user.
The target audience is the elderly. The device would be relatively expensive to manufacture, but there would likely be one bought for every nursing home that contained an abrupt step.
I have thoroughly designed the mechanical components and believe it would work. You can see a video demonstration at the url link.
