Freedom on wheels: The Rollator Walker

In decades past, individuals who would get tired or lose balance while taking a stroll around the neighborhood, visiting a mall with friends or exploring the outdoors, would be relegated to staying at home for their own safety. Luckily, in the last few years, various mobility devices have come into the market with a sole purpose: that of restoring freedom and confidence to those exact same individuals. Among those devices is the ever evolving Rollator walker.

You might be wondering what the difference between a conventional walker and a rollator is. Whereas a walker is a simple foldable aluminum frame (with or without wheels), the rollator takes the walker experience to the next level. Mediplus Mobility’s rollators feature the latest innovations to ensure a smooth user experience both indoors and outdoors. For example, unlike regular walkers– rollators always come equipped with four wheels. Unlike the small wheels on walkers, rollator wheels are larger and many of them have tread that assists people in navigating more rugged terrains. Also, most rollators come equipped with a cushioned seat and backrest. These features are crucial for individuals who tire out after walking for a while. By having a seat surface handy, you can take a breather at your convenience.

Of course, in order to guarantee the safety of the person who’s using the rollator walker, the devices are also equipped with ergonomic brakes. Not only are the brakes important in helping individuals achieve more stability while using their rollator, but they must also be activated when using the rollator as a seat in order to prevent possible slips.

Not only do rollators come packed with features like handy shopping baskets and comfortable foam grips, but later-generation rollator walkers are styled to complement one’s personal style. Whether you’re looking for a rollator for sale or a rollator for rent, you will find that they are often painted in attractive colors like white, red, blue or black and possess modern, almost aerodynamic lines.

Mediplus Mobility has a large selection of rollator walkers available for rent and for sale. Not only does our team guarantee excellent pricing and quick availability, but we also have the knowledge necessary to answer any questions you may have when picking a great device for your needs.

Mediplus Mobility makes it easy to rent a scooter. Individuals can choose scooter rentals for as short as one week and extend that rental as long as necessary.

A scooter rental also gives individuals the ability to pick a different model if the original scooter doesn’t suit their needs or if they decide to travel and need a lighter device.
