The rollator Vs. The standard walker

Loading...

A rollator is also known as a rolling walker. The rollator has been designed using the same basic principles of the regular standard walker. The rollator addresses specific needs that are not met by the traditional walker.

The biggest complaint from people using the regular walkers is when they need a seat to sit down and when they get tired from walking and need to rest. Regular walkers do not come with a seat to rest. Regular walkers do not handle as good outdoors or on uneven pavement or gravel. Rollator walkers all come with a seat for resting except the 3 wheel version which is used when patients do not need the seat but still want the bigger wheels for easier rolling outdoors.

Rollators were made with this in mind. Rollators or Rolling walkers have wheels that are made to be used outside and on uneven surfaces and can hold higher weight capacities than most standard walkers and come with swivel wheels on the front legs so the person using it doesn’t have to lift the rollator to turn right or left like a standard walker requires. Rollators come in 4 different types. There is the 3 wheel rollators, 4 wheel rollators,heavy duty rollators and the rollator wheelchair combo.

Four wheel rollators typically include a seat, pouch and/or basket, and hand brakes, and fold down for storage or travel. With a variety of colors, weight capacities, sizes, and and other options, there is a perfect four wheel rollator for everyone.
