Rollators are ideal for those who are suffering with a long-term disability and have lost stamina and strength in their legs. These walkers now come with many upgrades that enhance the experience for the user. These walkers have adjustable heights. Some models have a cane holder and a small storage bin at the front for small items. Here are some things to keep in mind before you make your final rollator purchase:
How Will It Be Used?
The purpose of the walker is probably the most important consideration. These walkers are designed for people with extended limited mobility issues or for elderly persons. If it is for someone who just needs to move from one room to another inside a house, a conventional walker might be a better choice.
Kinds Of Wheels
Rollators come with two types of wheels, an inflatable type and the regular rubber wheels. They type of wheels you get will depend on how you plan to use the rollator. If you will be encountering uneven terrain, inflatable wheels work best. Rollators come with either 3 or 4 wheels.
Safety Level and Ease of Use
The ease and safety level of the walker will depend on the person using it. The rollators with seats have brakes to make sure they are safe and don’t slip away when sitting or getting up from a seated position.
People who want comfort have the option of padded seats. Some even come with back supports, which help to ease strain on the lower back. Three wheel rollators do not come with seats, so keep this in mind when looking at options. You have to go with a 4 wheeler if you want the seat option.
Finding the right rollator for your needs can be a bit tricky, but hopefully the above tips will come in useful during the selection process.
