Buying a Rollator or Rolling Walker Guide:

What is a Rollator? What You Need to Know About Selecting the right Rolling Walker or Rollator

There are many types of Rollators and Rolling Walkers available and knowing how to select the type and size is important before you make your final buying decision. Our Rollator Buying Guide will help you understand the differences between the different types of Rollators and Rolling Walkers as well as how to measure a Rollator to make sure it is appropriate to the end users height and weight.

Rollator Categories

There are 3 categories of Rollators: 3 wheel rollators, 4 wheel rollators and bariatric or known as heavy duty rollators. By reading the rolling walker guide below you will learn about the different types and their recommended uses.

Rollators

Also known as Rolling Walkers, Rollators were developed as an alternative to the Standard Walker. Available with 3 or 4 wheels, Rollators do not involve the lift and drop that a standard step walker requires. This rolling function provides a smoother and more natural walking experience. The reason people choose the 4 wheel rolling walker over the 3 wheel is the seat and the wider base for extra stability. The reason to move up to a heavy duty rollator model from a standard size is the need to be able to hold the heavier size patient and the wider seat widths.  Unlike a Standard Walker, most Rollators have hand brakes or loop brakes which can be easily set by the operator. Most Rollators offer a fold down seat for added support and comfort. Rollators can be folded in half by simply picking up on a rod underneath the seat, and lifting up which provides for easy transport and storage.

How to Choose a Rolling Walker or Rollator

There are several questions you want to consider when shopping for a Rolling Walker or Rollator. Most frequently considered features include:

Weight Capacity:All Rollators and Rolling Walkers have a recommended weight capacity. Most Rolling Walkers, and Rollators have a weight capacity ranging from 250-300 lbs while Heavy Duty or Bariatric rollators have a higher weight capacity of 400 lbs. or more.

User Height: It is always important to consider the recommended user height when choosing a Rollator. Most designs are designed to be adjustable giving you the ability to adjust the height of the handles for an ergonomically correct fit. If you are a person of small stature, consider a rolling walker such as the freedom rollator or any of the junior rollator styles which is designed specifically for smaller users.

Wheel Size: Most rollators have a wheel size ranging from 6"- 8". Depending upon the intended use of the rollator, standard 6" wheels allow for easy maneuvering over most surfaces. Larger wheels allow for easier rolling over more rugged surfaces or heavy use outdoors. All regular walkers have options for either 3 inch or 5 inch fixed wheels for the front two legs or swivel wheels for the front legs.

Folding: Do you need your rollator to fold for transport? All walkers and rollators we sell fold to allow for easy storage and transport. 3 wheel rollators will fold into a smaller and lighter area then a 4 wheel o heavy duty rollator or rolling walker will.
