2.0 out of 5 stars XLNT design 2 flaws get low rating, July 6, 2009
This review is from: Hugo Portable Rollator Walker with Seat, Backrest and 8 Inch Wheels, Blue (Health and Beauty)
HUGO Rolling Walker, Blue

Costco quit carrying Hugo Rollators. Amazon reviews are 'required reading' on my purchases from any source.

FLAWS:
1-Wheels near feet can be put inside frame causing TOE damage for diabetic neuropathy or other users.
2-Bolt holding wheel and bearing swivel to frame works loose and allows wheel to fail unless wobble noticed. I have returned at least one during early weeks [to Costco] for this. My current one was repaired from older ones.

Features for me buying 4 or 5 of these.

-push lock brakes
-NO TOOL assembly
-Large wheels
-bag vs basket
-lock open / close [had to put bright tape on knob so aids could see it]

Minor problems:
-brake not adjusted right - immediate return.
-seat could use more padding - I use as chair mostly in house

If these 2 flaws were definitely fixed I would continue buying Hugo Rollator.
