What Are Rollators?
Rollators are generally considered to be a little bit more convenient than tri-walkers and other walking aids like crutches, especially when it comes to travelling further.
They are normally designed with 4 wheels to provide a sturdier base, and they can be very helpful for getting yourself down to the shops, for running errands or for going out with the family on day trips without feeling like a burden.
They are essentially a Zimmer frame on wheels, so rather than lift the frame each step, you push it along. They provide excellent support and stability, and can be used to carry your bags. Plus, many come with a seat too.
Rollators are great for people looking for a mobility aid to help them manage short distances, or for those who are quite confident in their balance and flexibility but need a little help to overcome reduced stamina. All these rollators are lightweight, transportable, and easy to look after too. Here we look at some of our most popular rollators - you can browse all our rollators for sale here.
