` Out and About | Walkers and Rollators

Walkers / Rollators

If you’re not as firm on your feet as you used to be; if your balance can sometimes be a bit of a problem; if there is a limit to how far you can walk without needing a bit of a sit down, then a Walker (often called a Rollator) could be a real help.

Indoors or out they can give you greater confidence when moving about and help avoid the risk of falling. All Rollators fold for easier storage or transportation; there are different folding mechanisms, some easier and more convenient than others, so trying before buying is always a wise approach. Rollators are similar in size but they can vary considerably in weight – steel frames are much heavier than aluminium frames and there are also different grades of aluminium frame; weight is another good reason for trying before buying.

And most rollators have somewhere to carry stuff – personal belongings, light shopping or if they have a tray – something to eat or drink

  • There are Rollators designed specifically for indoors.
  • There are simple Tri-walkers (three-wheeled) which are manoeuvrable and offer ‘light’ support.
  • There are more robust Tri-Walkers with a double wheel at the front for greater stability and which have the added benefit of a seat.
  • And there is a whole range of Four Wheeled Walkers, all with seats, which are just as manoeuvrable as the Tri-walkers but offer a much higher level of stability and support.

In choosing what kind of walker is most suitable for you, think about how you need it to help you:

  • Will you want to use it indoors, outdoors or both?
  • How much support do you need?
  • Will you need to sit down and take a break when you’re out and about?
  • Where will you store it when you’re not using it?
  • How light will it have to be for you to lift it?
