    Looking for a Home Walker Kitchen Trolley with Built-in Tray; Aid for Disabled

    Hello folks,

    I have been looking here in HK for a household trolley that is also a mobility aid for disabled people. Specifically, it would have a tray to put food items/ drinks. Store/websites like Medimart.com.hk have many Walkers/Walking Trolleys, but there doesn’t seem to be those for kitchen/home use with a built-in tray. Some UK based stores like Manageathome do Not ship overseas; Amazon has shipping to HK, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mobility-Tr...bility+Trolley, but the price of shipping cost even more than the actual product, i.e. a $1000HKD household trolley would cost around $1,200HKD just to ship. If I can’t find any options in HK, then I would go for that.
    I have contacted the Sanatorium hospital physiotherapy department, but they don’t have that sort of item. I also checked Taobao, but they don’t have any such listing. There are some Japanese sites, but they don’t ship to HK either. Any suggestions on where to get such an walking aid in HK would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!

    Tried to calculate the shipping on a shipping site like ShipBao which will ship from the UK to HK?

    Check with the HK Red Cross. They seem to have some included in their list of loanable items, so they must get them from somewhere...

    Hello Spoke,

    Thanks for the suggestion; yes, I previously had a look at the Red Cross site- they have some good equipment but it seems from the list of mobility equipment, there isn't a walker with a tray specifically for food items? I will contact them in any case just to check with them. I also emailed Adventist Hospital Rehab Centre, as one of their Occupational therapists trained my mother last year through a Home Assessment, but apparently, no such listing in their catalogue. By the way, the Adventist Hospital in Tsuen Wan is very nice indeed.

    Hi Shri,

    Thanks for the suggestion- that seems very close to what my mother is looking for. I'm not sure if the Rollator seat is quite wide enough to put food/drinks, though, I'll need to check the specs carefully. Thanks for your support...

    A third party shipping company that works in liaison with companies like Amazon? I'll need to check in out, thanks Shri!

    Not as sturdy for sure but may be useful in the meantime.

    Ikea has some other models as well. You may be able to hack together something useful.

    Hi, my mother actually has a large, metal trolley, but it is cumbersome and potentially dangerous, which is why were are looking to get on specifically for such disabled. Ikea has great products, for sure, but the Raskog, though probably safer that what she has now, would only be a very short term aid.

    If you start searching for "rollator hong kong" type key words, there are a number of shops offering a decent enough range...

    e.g.

    or this found using the search term (walker trolley tray site:.hk) on google ...
