Differences Between a Walker and a Rollator
A rollator has four wheels, whereas a walker has four legs that typically do not roll. With that in mind, using a walker usually requires a person to lift it. The rollator is like a rolling walker, easier to maneuver because it has four rolling wheels and hand brakes for stability. This type of mobility aid also has swiveling wheels and a convenient padded seat that is height-adjustable.
When a Rollator or Walker Is Recommended
If you have balance or stability problems, a walker can be a great choice. It's stable, and a heavy-duty walker can support some of your weight when you move. If you need frequent breaks, rollators offer a convenient place to sit and rest. If you have chronic fatigue, the rollator can be your go-to mobility aid.
People dealing with weakness in the arms should also choose a rollator to avoid having to lift anything just to get around. When you need to travel, you can also take the folded rollator with you. Ours come with a storage bag for ease of transportation. The folded rollator even fits into the trunk of a car, making for more convenient travels.
