Ahh, youth…wasted on the young! I don't know who said that quote, but just because our gait may become a little less steady, there is no reason we should surrender our independence.
When we are young, we often take our mobility for granted. However, the ability to get around easily can diminish due to age, injury, or illness.
An aid to consider is a 4-wheel rollator walker. The medical supply market offers so many rollator walkers the sheer number of options will make your head spin. So, how do you find the right one for you?
|Easy to move||Must be lifted to move|
|Functions well indoors and outdoors||Can be awkward on unlevel terrain|
|Offers seating||No seat|
Often the question is asked: isn't a rollator the same as a walker? In the sense that they are both mobility aids that can help you get around safely - yes, they are. It's the differences that set the two apart quite significantly.
Since a four-wheel rollator doesn't need to be lifted, moving forward is simpler and more manageable, leading to safer mobility. Plus, the seat offers a place to rest if needed, and the increased maneuverability allows a 4-wheel walker user to go more places indoors and out.
How do you decide which four-wheeled walker might be the best to fit your lifestyle and mobility? While the choices seem endless, we have identified seven of the best 4-wheel rollator walkers available:
