Oxygen cylinder carrierAn elderly client needing a permanent oxygen supply, wished to continue country walking. A standard shopping trolley had been tried but it was difficult to carry the cylinders securely and gave insufficient ground clearance.

A frame of square section tube was fabricated to carry two cylinders on one side and a hinged aluminium box for shopping etc. on the other. The cylinders were held in place by Velcro straps and the required ground clearance achieved by welding a pair of outrigger stabilisers from a child’s bicycle to the bottom of the frame. The client now has the ability to spend a full day ‘in the field’.
