Drive Medical

For people who have difficulty walking–such as the elderly, the disabled, or people nursing an injury or recovering from surgery–there are numerous styles of walkers that can provide them support and stability. Typical walkers are just aluminum frames with handles and rubberized feet to prevent slipping. Rollators, or walkers with wheels, however, have many more features. They are walkers with either 2, 3, or 4 wheels. They can also include handlebars and a braking system, and even a padded seat and backrest. They are principally for people who tire easily when walking, need help with balance, or suffer from obesity and need something to relieve the pressure of walking. But rollators differ in their features. Besides differences in the number of wheels, there are also differences in their weight capacity, braking system, and how you can adjust the height. There are also different storage spaces on rollators, using a basket, a pouch, or a space under the seat.

Important Features 

  • Storage Area: Many rollators have a basket or bag that helps you carry things along with you while using your rollator. Some of them have the storage area under the seat, such as in the Medline Steel Rollator Walker.

  • Whether a rollator is right for you: A walker without wheels is more for people who can’t put their weight on both feet, due to surgery or injury. A rollator is best for people who are able to walk, but who need help because they tire easily, or to avoid the risk of falling.

  • Assembly: Many times, you’ll have to do a little construction to get your rollator operating. Fortunately, healthcare companies have made it easy. Putting the parts together usually requires just attaching the front and back wheels to the chassis, attach the handles and brake cable, and finally to attach the backrest. The parts will either click into place, or you will insert screws to lock the pieces in place.

  • Types of brakes: There are two types of brakes on rollators. You’ll see rollators with loop brakes, or with spring-loaded push-down brakes.

  • Loop brakes: These brakes are located on the handles. You activate the brake by squeezing the handles on the walker.
