Question about Drive Medical Winnie Walker, Mimi Lite Push Brake Rollator

Open Question

We have a Medline Rollator Walker, H909025333, and the brake does not function. We purchased a brake replacement kit from Medline but it did not come with instructions. There is a crimped end and a bolt that does not remove from the cable and will not thread through the tube attached to the leg of the walker. Can anyone help me? Medline seems to be closed for the weekend and my MIL is without wheels. Thanks!

SOURCE: The brakes on a clever

There are adjusters on the brake cables that are designed to solve this problem. The cables for the brakes run inside a flexible housing. When you squeeze the handle, the cable should engage the brake. The problem is that the cables inside the housing stretch over time and do not work as well. There is a threaded adjuster at the handle where the housing of the cable goes into the handle. If you turn this adjuster counterclockwise it will, in effect, make the housing longer and the brake cable tighter (shorter). This should engage the brakes better. It make take some trial and error, turning the threaded adjusters clockwise and counter-clockwise to get the proper setting for your strength and comfort. Hope this helps.

How do I set and release the brakes


On most walkers the handle you squeeze to make the brakes work will push down. If you push them down the brakes will lock on and pull up to unlock.

What determines whether you need a walker?


I am not sure if your trying to get it on insurance but the same reasons Medicare will pay for one should also apply to whether or not the need is there.

If you can honestly say all that is listed below applies to you then you medically need one.

1) The patient has a mobility limitation that significantly impairs his/her ability to participate in one or more mobility-related activities of daily living (MRADL) in the home.

- A mobility limitation is one that:
a) Prevents the patient from accomplishing the MRADL entirely, or

b) Places the patient at reasonably determined heightened risk of morbidity or mortality secondary to the attempts to perform the MRADL, or

c) Prevents the patient from completing the MRADL within a reasonable time frame;

and

2) The patient is able to safely use the walker; and

3) The functional mobility deficit can be sufficiently resolved with use of a walker.

If all of the criteria are not met, the walker will be denied as not medically necessary. These are not my words but come from here
http://www.amiservices.com/documents/Walkers.doc.

Basically if you can pass what Medicare considers medically necessary then that answers your question. Hope this helps.

How to adjust parking brake on winnie lite 3 wheel rollator


For openers "LOCKING" handles)...
Very GENTLY would be the first caution..

Unlike the brakes on those long ago bicycles we used to have... these WALKER BRAKES are pretty cheesy plastic...

None of the ones I've been compelled to work with have
interchangeable parts... SO BE GENTLE.

Look at both ends of the cable of the first wheel you want to adjust...

You are looking for a threaded sleeve with a nut on it...

If the brakes are too tight you will want to shorten the sleeve...
Too loose you will want to lengthen it (tightening the cable).

DO NOT overtighten...

These are all plastic... cheaply constructed... but EXPENSIVE to replace.

I have had to hand craft REPLACEMENT PARTS to repair these things (nothing is STANDARD (but the careless attitudes).

When you do break'em... AMAZON had the greatest selection...
(knowing the mounting diameter, and cable length is imperative
(sold in PAIRS)).
