Like standard walkers, rolling walkers generally have four legs and two handles. Rollators are different in that they have wheels on all four legs to make them easier to push. They also feature hand brakes on the handles to make using them safe. Rolling walkers are available from brands Nova, Hugo and Medline in different colors and with various features to help meet your needs.
Different types and uses
You can conveniently use some rolling walkers as transport chairs with the help of a companion or caregiver. Some have folding or adjustable back rests, and most have padded seats. Various lightweight aluminum rollators can support different weights, and bariatric rollators feature more width in the seat and heavy-duty frames. You can find rollators that are only for indoor use, while many can also be used outdoors.
To help address your various needs, you can find other mobility aids here at Walgreens.com. You may choose crutches or a cane for certain occasions, and a wheelchair or walker for others. There are also safety options available, including bathroom safety products such as safety grab bars, shower stools and bath mats. Assist rails can also be used throughout the home, and bed safety rails can keep you safe overnight.
