When you think about the word "walker" the image that is typically brought to mind is a colorless front wheeled walker with tennis balls on the back, right? Rollators are changing the game by providing increased maneuverability and comfortability. Most rollators come with a padded seat that can be utilized after ensuring the brakes have been engaged and a built-in back rest to allow you to lean back and relax.
A standard rollator comes in many different shapes and sizes. Many of them have a variety of utilities to help you stay on the go or to help you stay secure when you need to rest. We also offer bariatric or heavy duty rollators to accommodate different weight capacities. Each rollator has different colors or patterns to choose from and can be combined with accessories to provide even more style and utility. If you've been looking for an upgrade to your current front wheeled walker, we can guarantee you'll find it here.
Some rollators are specifically designed to allow the user to maintain proper posture. An upwalker does just that. By having the user's elbows set to a 90 degree angle, the upwalker creates stability and control for those who may have trouble standing up straight. The U-Step is a great walker for people that suffer from Parkinson's (and other degenerative neural conditions).
The Kneewalker is a good alternative to conventional crutches and is significantly more mobile. It can have and attachable basket on the front to hold things like magazines or electronic devices. The knee pad is offset to prevent your foot from getting snagged by the back wheels. If you think the knee pad isn't soft enough, you can buy a fleece cover to add extra support. Aside from the advantages of the Kneewalker, you'll be having so much fun scooting around that you may even forget about your injuries.
When it comes to rollators, there's a lot to choose from. Each type of rollator will have a specific function in mind but the main idea is to provide stability and confidence wherever you go.
