It's a toilet jack (a special device to lift a toilet from the floor).

something used in physical therapy? or to help a person who has been injured get into a stretcher or something?

or maybe used in the automotive industry to slide under a lift where a car or truck is stationed in order to service it?

it's strange because of those red feet looking things on the side, but it's on wheels and looks like there is a spring and maybe a hydraulic piston of some sort near the bottom right??
