Rollators or wheeled walkers
A rollator (or walker with wheels) is useful for those who wish to mobilise but can't physically lift a static walker. The majority of rollators are either three or four wheeled and have hand lever brakes. The four wheeled version offers more stability to the user than its three wheeled counterpart.
Some come with the option of accessories such as baskets and bags which make them useful for carrying items when out shopping. A seated rollator is a good idea for those who like to stop and take regular breathers when out walking.
If you're choosing a rollator to use indoors, measure doorways to ensure that the rollator will fit through. Most rollators can be folded away for ease of storage and for transportation.
Rollators are not recommended for those with balance problems.
