The best walking assistance device is one that fits both your specific needs and your body. The features of the mobility walkers on sale vary from model to model. These walking aids also come in different sizes. It’s a good idea, therefore, to consider a walker that best suits your situation.
Below are a few things to take note of when selecting a walker:
Price – A walker typically costs between $40 and $150, depending on the kind of product you choose. Expect to pay more for rollators and less for standard walkers.
Foldability – Some elderly walker models fold better than others. If you need to lift a walker in and out of your vehicle regularly or have a problem with storage space in your home, a model that folds down easily to a manageable size will be ideal.
Capacity – Some walkers can support individuals who weigh between 250 and 300 pounds, while others can hold up to 500 pounds. When considering capacity, pick one that’s appropriate to you or the individual’s size and weight.
BrakeType – Many rollators are equipped with hand loop brakes that you can engage by squeezing the levers. These brakes, however, are hard to use if you have arthritis or hand dexterity issues. If this is the case, choose models with weight-activated, pushdown brakes.
SeatHeight – Some walkers, such as the four-wheeled rollator, have built-in seats. If you’re thinking of getting this particular walker, make sure that the seat height will work for you. Select a height that makes getting in and out easy for you and note that height while shopping our rollator products.
HandleHeight – Ideally, you should purchase a walker whose handle you can adjust an inch higher and lower. This allows you to adapt to different floor surfaces or shoe heights. While standing, measure the distance from your wrist to the floor and that is the correct hight of your walker / rolltor handle.
Weight – The ideal walker should not be too heavy for you, especially if you are looking at a standard model. You should be able to lift this walking aid off the ground with each step.
Width – The walker that you’ll frequently use indoors should easily fit through the doorways of your home. Many walkers on sale are between 22 and 27 inches wide at the base, which may not fit in some cases.
