Rollator walkers

The usability of a rollator is linked to user's weight and height. If a person will try to use a rollator walker that is not commensurate to his or her constitution, it can substantially lessen the functionality of this device and often may result in disturbance and pain.

There are different rollator walkers with regard to a patient's weight. This depends on mechanisms inbuilt into the device, and the materials that the equipment is made of. Steel frame versions will fit best for those who are in need of a heavy-duty constuction, and aluminum frames are perfect for users whose weight is less than 200 lbs.

One more usability defining factor is the control mechanism. The most popular models are effortlessly regulable. The right model of rollator must also be suitable for user's height: patient's elbows must bend from 20° to 30° when the user stands behind the device and holds the handles.

Look for versatility.
