A rolling walker, or rollator, is easier to use than a standard walker because it can simply be pushed like a cart, rather than having to be lifted. Rollators come in 3-wheel and 4-wheel models, and are perfect for those who want to remain active and independent, despite their arthritis, bad back, or weak knees. Some rollators also function as a transport chair, which is great for travel and for those who are recovering from knee or hip replacements.
Here’s what you should look for when choosing a rolling walker:
Narrower and more lightweight, 3-wheel rollators have a tight turning radius and fold much easier. Four wheeled walkers are usually more stable and have a higher weight capacity, wider height range, and a resting seat.
Rollator transport chairs offer both independence and convenience. They’re great for when people get tired and need to rest. Consider the material, size, and height of the seat to make sure it’ll fit your specific needs. Some combination chairs come with footrests for added stability.
Rollators are compact mobility devices that can be folded for storage and easy transport. Take note of the overall and closed width of your rollator walker to make sure that it’ll fit through narrow doorways and in the trunk of your vehicle.
Large wheels (8” and up) make it easier to push the rollator over curbs and rough terrain. Rolling walkers with small, solid wheels are suitable for indoor use. Wheels can be fixed, swivel, or both.
Loop lock brakes (hand brakes) are similar to bike brakes; they’re used by squeezing both handles. Push-down brakes are ideal for those with limited hand dexterity. A rollator with a safety locking feature keeps the device from moving.
Choosing the right height will ensure that you won’t be bending over and hurting your back to reach the handles. Many wheeled walkers have an adjustable height to fit a wide range of users.
Padded armrests and backrest are more comfortable than hard plastic. A gel or foam cushion can help prevent pressure sores. People with arthritic hands should look for rolling walkers with contoured, padded, or foam handles.
Take note of the rollator's depth when it's folded. You want to make sure that it'll fit in your car backseat or trunk, or storage area at home. The Medline Ultralight Freedom is just 7" thick when folded.
Some rollators weigh only 12 lbs., while others weigh as much as 35 lbs. Aluminum rollators are typically more lightweight than steel models. A heavier rollator can be difficult to lift when storing inside a car trunk or airplane overhead bin.
Consider your own weight, plus the weight of potential items, such as an oxygen tank or groceries, carried on the rollator walker.
Most rolling walkers come with a basket or seat pouch to store personal items. Additional accessories that may improve the functionality and comfort of your rollator include a mobility bag, drink holder, tray, and seat cushion.
