Rollator walking aids have sturdy yet lightweight frames, supporting users and allowing them to travel around either indoors or outdoors confidently. This provides further independence and allows a base to rest upon should they require. Plus, foldable rollators allow for easy storage and transportation.
Rollators such as the Suspension Rollator are designed to absorb vibrations transmitted through the frame, which takes the strain and impact away from the user and provides a more comfortable experience.
Should the user of a rollator walking aid need to rest, they can make use of the seating option. Some rollator walking aids offer height-adjustable seats for optimum comfort, plus curved backrests provide the user with support while seated.
The wheels on a rollator, particularly as the swivelling front wheels, allow ease of movement around corners both in and outside of the home. Eliminating the need to ‘pick up’ the walking aid after each step (as you would with a standard walking frame) means that a more fluid walking action is required. With four wheels, rollators provide excellent stability and are particularly useful when walking across uneven surfaces (i.e., bumpy pavements). Plus, puncture-proof tyres ensure longevity and increased manoeuvrability over a variety of different surfaces.
Ergonomically-designed handbrakes enable the user to control their movement while the handles allow for a comfortable grip. Look for rollators which have a lockable brake feature, such as the Premier Rollator, which provide extra safety and stability.
Thanks to their compact nature and internal or strapped on wiring for brake systems, rollator walking aids can be folded and transported wherever the user desires. Rollators can be adjusted to fit in compact areas, including in car boots, meaning you can continue everyday life with ease.
