Consider the following before purchasing a rollator:
1. Which rollator should I use?
There are rollators that are good for every environment and others more suited for just indoor use. If using your rollator outside or on uneven surfaces, choose a rollator with large and stable wheels. If you mostly use it indoors, smaller wheels ensure walking is smooth. If you frequently transport it, think about weight and folding possibilities.
2. What size should it be?
The seat should feel roomy with sufficient distance between the handles so you do not have to squeeze into the seat. Make sure the width of the rollator fits through your doorways. A rollator that can partially fold while walking is ideal for narrow doorways. Your feet should rest comfortably on the ground when you sit down on your rollator.
4. How do I choose the right handle?
With weak or painful hands or wrists, anatomically shaped handles will spread the weight over a wider area of the palm thus reducing stress and making the use of the brake much easier.
5. How do I set the correct handle height?
When you stand straight, the handles should meet your wrist and arms should be slightly bent at the elbows (about 20 to 30 degree angle).
6. What wheels are appropriate?
Larger wheels facilitate walking on uneven ground while small wheels are better for indoor use.
7. What accessories do I need?
