Rolling Walkers Are Perfect For People Who Need Something More Durable
Assistive devices, such as walkers, are being used more often as people age. If you are looking for something to provide minimal help for a patient, a cane might be a better solution. Canes improve one’s ability to get up from a chair or can help with balance. Rolling walkers with seat and wheels, however, provide even more stability and better body alignment and balance. In general, rolling walkers with seat and wheels are given to patients to keep them stable when walking. They are perfect for long trips or for those who don't want to be slowed down by their mobility equipment. If the correct type of rollator is prescribed, and if patients are taught how to use them correctly, they can decrease the risk of falls. Volaris Rollator has four wheels, with the 2 front wheels fully-rotating, brakes, and a seat. It is used for patients who need a walker for both balance and weight-bearing. It is also easier to propel than any other type of walker. Advantages of Rollators
- They provide a more normal walking pattern, as they do not need to be lifted off the ground with each step.
- They are easy to maneuver around turns and typically do not need to be lifted when turning.
- They are perfect for use outdoors where the surfaces may be uneven.
- They can also be used indoors, and some are even narrow enough to navigate through tricky halls and doorways.
- A rollator’s seat is helpful for people with diseases like heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which require resting.
