Rollators: Walker With Wheels And So Much More.
What differentiates a rollator from a walker, how do I know what I need, and what options do I want.
July 13, 2012 - PRLog -- Rollators are commonly referred to as "walkers with wheels", while this is not a far stretch, there are some very distinct differences. A few of the differences are that rollators have either 3 or 4 wheels, which reduce fatigue by having the patient push the rollator on smooth wheels as opposed to lifting a walker. Other differences include having a folding seat, and typically have a large enough basket to hold items such as a purse or handbag, and the ability to add accessories for convenience.
medsupplyshop is hoping to educate patients who have general walking maladies or have had medical procedures such as hip replacement, knee replacement that they are suitable candidates for rollators.
“What makes a rollator perfect for home or on the road use is that they are light-weight, have adjustable height, are sturdy and generally more convenient to use than a walker. We carry a large variety of rollators to suit any patient request from wheel count such as 3 or 4 wheels, wheel sizes, colors such as red, blue, green, and silver to multiple seat arrangements, basket sizes, and brake options.” Says David Winzelberg CEO of the home medical supply company.
One of the more affordable models available is the Four Wheeled rollator model # 10257 by Drive Medical, it features a padded backrest that is hinged and can be removed. The seat on the 10257 is foldable and comes with a basket, as well an optional tray is available for purchase. The steel frame is durable and the 8” wheels are non-marring which make them ideal for indoor and outdoor use. Braking is made simple by the deluxe loop locks and the handles are ergonomic which makes them easy to grip and are height adjustable. The 10257 Rollator is selling for $68.99 on the home medical supply company website and available in red and blue, and comes standard with a limited lifetime warranty from Drive Medical.
