The original active was developed by Ulf Tolfsen and Labyrint Development AS back in 2002 when the company was know as Access Vital AS. The active is one of the best selling high end rollators on the market. The Active was designed for production in Asia and when the company decided to bring production to Europe a re-design was in order.
Pivot were contracted by Hugo design to assist on the early development of the stannah re-active. As production was being moved from Asia to Europe high focus was on simplification. We developed an inline braking system that reduced weight, part country, assembly time and increased performance. Together we worked the whole geometry of the rollator to improve folded storage stability. We improved the process of folding the procuct by adding a intuitive lifting point and combining the folding release button in the same location.
