A thing for injured people

Hi everyone! What do you call this thing? It's used for very old people or injured people.

It is a walker or walking frame but, because of market dominance, often called a Zimmer Frame or Zimmer.

This led to a rather bad pun. When driving through Germany and seeing a person with a walking frame out in the rain the remark occurred, "ah, Zimmer mit Dusche".

I thought it was rather a good pun, actually. :)
