Three wheeled triangular frames are sometimes referred to as ''Delta'' or ''tri-wheeler frames''. They consist of a single front swivel castor and two uni-directional rear wheels. The larger wheels make rollators suitable for outdoor use. They offer greater maneuverability than four wheeled walkers, but are not as stable. For Safety the user must exercise care while stopping. Brakes must be applied carefully.
It is crucial to keep the following points in mind before selecting a 4 wheeled walker. The height should not be too high as the user may find it difficult to bear weight through their arms as their elbows may not straighten. The height should not be too low the user will lean forwards creating a poor posture and back problems. However, for people with backward leaning tendency a walker with a slightly shortened height must be selected to encourage the forward leaning posture. Do remember to wear supportive footwear while being measured for height.
Features to consider while choosing a rollator include:
