Walkers with Wheels

Wheeled walkers are very similar to standard walkers. The major difference is that -- while standard models feature platforms at the bottom of each leg -- wheeled models feature at least two, you guessed it - wheels. Although platforms tend to provide a bit more stability, wheels can reduce friction and make movement easier. If you’re struggling to make a decision, try both styles and see what feels most natural. If lifting and maneuvering a standard walker is a struggle, you may want to opt for a wheeled variant, but if maintaining posture and balance is difficult with a wheeled walker, you may want to opt for a standard model.
