So glad I got this for Mom! The old simple walker she had was more of a hazzard than an aid. This rollator makes mobility so much easier for her that I think she will walk more and get stronger. She said "this is like dancing" when she tried it the first time!
This is a newer product but had everything inward looking for. I initially looked at 2-wheeled traditional walkers with fold-down seats, but they are roughly twice as expensive. This still lets you walk between the handles but leave the seat down, so it doubles as a tray to carry stuff, for me. Rolls smoothly and the back stopping mechanism works great for me, but I out tens balls on for inside the house to avoid messing up the floors. While similar in design to a 4-wheel walker, the wheels are smaller so this is much less obtrusive, easy to get in and out of car, lightweight. My PT was very happy with it as well. It gives me a bit more freedom than a regular walker with fixed front wheels, since these swivel and you don't have to pick up each time, but isn't too fast like a 4-wheel rollator would be. I'm happy with my purchase!
I purchased this because I have bad knees and a bad hip and back. I used a regular walker before but I wanted something that if I got tired and needed to sit right away, there was that option. I have looked several places for a rollator walker and being a large person I had to make sure that it accommodated my weight. Overstock was the greatest place that I had found price wise, and I'm glad I purchased it.
I bought this rollator/walker for my elderly mom. The product is light weight for me, easy enough to put it in and out of my compact car. It is too heavy for mom to lift. I was able to adjust the height, suitable for her as she is very short. The wheels roll easily and can turn to any direction without any difficulty. It is a great product for the cost.
