Definition of Zimmer in English:
A kind of walking frame.
- So he saws the end off his one-barrelled shotgun, saddles up his Zimmer frame, and he and his trusty wife Laura mosey along very slowly to the bank.
- You don't get rock there, but there's plenty of Zimmer frames.
- Aged only 46, when he does walk, he is supported by at best, a walking stick, and at worst, a ‘rollator’ - a three-wheeled Zimmer frame.
