Lack of balance can lead quickly to a lack of confidence, which might mean you stop getting out and about as much as you used to. Walking aids, whether a rollator, tri-walker or just a trusty walking stick, provide an invaluable helping hand for those unsteady on their feet. Rollators are the sturdiest of the bunch, with 4 rolling wheels as opposed to the 3 you will find on a tri-walker.
They provide more points of contact with the ground and as such can support more weight as you walk. The 4 wheels also make it easier for those with a lack of stability to turn corners, which is really helpful in busy environments. All our rollators are fitted with brakes and ergonomic handles. These handles are easier to use for those with arthritis and/or limited strength in their hands, with easy-to-squeeze brakes to bring you to a safe stop if necessary. Rollators are easy-to-transport walking aids. They are often built with folding frames, which means they slide into most car boots and are easy to store when not in use. And many rollators also feature a seat with a comfortable backrest. This is particularly useful for those who tire quickly while out walking, but they also come in handy if you are in a standing-only situation with no seating provided.
