As people get older — a time in our lives when a simple stumble can lead to a broken hip — safety means independence. The rollator style walker gives a person the confidence needed to be ambulatory over several types of terrain. The large wheels increase this safety factor.
Medline rollator walkers offer this independence in their lightweight aluminum construction models that include folding capability for storage and transportation, ergonomic design for comfort, reliable pull to stop locking brakes, five inch non-marring indoor or outdoor wheels, a padded seat cushion with backrest, and a removable grocery basket with a folding handle so it can be carried into the store if desired. These are state-of-the-art design and are mass produced thus driving down the initial cost.
The Delux rollator walker is similar and is also ideal for inside or outside use. The Delux rollator walker features large six-inch wheels and a comfortably padded seat and backrest. The Delux is easily foldable for storage or transportation and the Delux has brakes that operate easily and ensure continued safety.
Both the Delux and the Medline rollator walkers offer accessories such as grocery baskets, horns, lights, trays, colorful accouterments, stylized hand grips and brake triggers, and they also offer several modern frame styles and colors. And the additional storage space adapted for these rollator walkers allows the owner more freedom while shopping. Now he or she can shop for themselves and carry quite a large amount of goods on the rollator walker instead of being dependant upon a friend, neighbor, relative, or pay someone to shop for them. Some of this accessory basket or bag units can carry up to fifty pounds safely.
Special hooks may be also purchased and attached to the rollator walker which allows the user to hang the standard plastic shopping bags from these hooks without fear of tearing the plastic bag handles. These hooks are easily installed with simple hand tools. And while shopping, the user only needs to be aware of balancing the goods properly about the walker as he or she adds goods to the basket or bags, See the latest walker on Mfcc 4 Health.
“Reachers” with clamps or suction cups may be purchased for “grabbing” cans or boxes from high places in the store or at home in the kitchen. There is also an attachment for the rollator walker to stow the reacher when not in use.
The alternative to a rollator walker is a wheelchair. In some severe lack of mobility incidences a wheelchair is a must, but if a person is ambulatory to a large extent and only has a moderate balance problem, the Delux or Medline rollator walkers are the better choices. The users will also get lots of exercises — both in the arms and the legs. Besides that, being upright gives a person a sense of dignity not found when constantly seated. The Delux and the Medline rollators both fulfill this sense of dignity.
