Unlike American companies, who seem to want to put all of we crippled people in those electric toys, Euro and Asian physicians still focus on keeping people walking if they're able. I fit that; a spinal infection in 2010 left me crippled up. As most have, I started out with a walker but those are noisy and irritating. I discovered rollators and haven't looked back. I have three, of which this is one. I ordered it on here because my local handicapped store had nothing like it, only those cheapie Hugo things. I'm in my mid fifties and other than a ruined spine I'm okay. A rollator is perfect for someone like me who really wants to get around, and not on an electric plaything. This rollator is much more substantial in feel and action than the Hugo-type rollators. Look at the size of the front wheels; if you're going to be walking outside at all those silly Hugo wheels are far too small and will catch on sidewalk seams. The other thing to notice with this rollator is the wheelbase between the front and back wheels. It's long, for real stability. Those flimsy Hugo-type machines have a short wheelbase that compromises stability. This folds easily, isn't overly heavy, and other than a few minor scratches over the last 18 months, it's in perfect shape even with daily use. I'd definitely recommend it to other crippled people.

I love my rollator. It is lightweight, easy to fold up and put in the car. I showed it to my neurologist and he was impressed with how sturdy, it was and them ease in use. I would recommend t to anyone who needs a walker.

Well, my reason for selecting the purple was because it was cheaper than the less bold color option. I am really not a "purple" person. However, this is a very appealing purple and I get complements on it daily. I was looking for a walker that folded differently than the typical walker. I drive a Cube and when I would put the walker in the cargo space, when I closed the hatch the handles would smack the glass. I was also considering a car with less cargo space too. This baby when collapsed completely could fit neatly in a file drawer. Never mind that it would take a while to accomplish the task. I simply pull up on the seat and place it nose down in my cargo space and go. It is a couple of pounds heavier and it does not seem to steer as easily as my last walker, but it is sturdier and has much bigger wheels which by the way have reflectors on them. The thing I love most about this rollator is that you can actually walk in the cage of the walker so there is no more reaching forward. It encourages you to walk in a more upright position.
