What is a Rollator?
In order to use a rollator, the person utilizing it needs to push it forward while walking at the same time. The rollator helps to offer stability and balance to the user so that they don't need to worry about staying upright or supported. These unique devices can offer independent mobility for those suffering from an injury, knee problems, joint pain, or just issues with getting around in general. Because they have wheels, rollators can help people who may have limited strength, making it much easier to push the rollator forward.
What Is A Rollator Walking Frame?
Most rollators are made with an aluminum frame, a lightweight material that still maintains durability and support. Some models have three wheels, while others have four. A built-in seat is an excellent addition for those who may need to stop from time to time and take a break. Handbrakes provide the user with added safety if they ever need to stop quickly. Look for rollators with added features like storage bags or a space to store goods under the seat. This makes it much easier for the person to carry essentials like wallets, keys, and other important items hands-free so they can focus on using the rollator.
How To Use a Rollator Walker
It's important to understand how to operate and use your rollator safely to avoid falls or possible injury. Always place the rollator directly in front of you whenever you take a step. Engage the handbrake if moving downhill or you feel like you need to stop suddenly for any reason. Use the chair (if included) to take a break so you do not overreach yourself and use it any time you feel out of breath or dizzy. Always keep your rollator close to your body as you walk in order to help ensure you're getting the best, most consistent support.
How Does A Rollator Work?

Stand close to the walker with hands on the two handles with brakes engaged
When you take your first step, the wheels will move with you to help you move with ease. It will help with balance and support while you walk. There are brakes, which work similarly to bike brakes, on the handle to stop you and keep you still when you need to stand or keep from moving. There is a seat where you can sit down and take a rest.
The rollator can fold up easily, which makes it easy to transport in a car.
