walker / zimmer

does anyone know where I could buy or rent a walker ( zimmer frame ) in the GE / Nyon area?

I've tried Google but don't have a clue as to what the french might be for "walker"

and there do not seem to be previous posts on the topic.

thanks,

g

Re: walker / zimmer

there used to be a shop on blvd de la cluse in front of the hospital that dealt with mobility assistance, dont know if they can help but might be worth a drive past.

Re: walker / zimmer

I believe the French term is "le déambulateur".

Try your local Red Cross Croix Rouge- they lend them for short term use.
