Rollators: An Evolved Walker

Posted on: April 17th, 2012 by LAMedicalBlogger

The rollatoris basically an evolved walker for individuals with good grip strength looking for more versatility.  With its many features and functions, it is no surprise to me that the rollator has become a customer favorite in the walking aid family.   Let’s examine the many reasons customers are choosing the rollator as their walking aid of choice.

One major benefit when using the rollator is more movement.  When using a walker, individuals must lift the walker and place it forward and then step up to the walker, then repeat.  With a rollator, you simply continue walking forward using the rollator for support and squeezing the hand brakes when you wish to stop.

Another benefit is the comfortable seat, which has two functions.  The first function is to allow the user to sit and rest when tired.  The second function of the seat allows the rollator to become a wheelchair.  When the user is with another individual, the user can sit on the seat and allow their friend to push them in the rollator.

With rollators, you have several options in number of wheels.  There is a three-wheel option which is chosen when the user has narrow halls or doorways that their rollator must fit through.  The most common option is the 4-wheel rollator, but rollators are also available in 6 and 8 wheel designs.

As with all walking aids, accessories including basket attachments for your personal belongings are available.

Do you or a loved one use a rollator?  We’d love to hear your input on rollators!
