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 have been an RN just over 30 years and also have had Multiple Sclerosis for the same period of time. Sometimes my balance is poor and that is when I use a cane. My health has been "off" for the past few months and it was time to start walking again to build up quad and core strength. I felt too short of breath to continue with a cane so I started looking online initially for a folding walker with wheels and seat. Almost everyone that I found weighed 25lbs and over which is too much weight for me to lift into my Jeep Commander and take to a store or other venue. Found this Meline product which I have always been pleased with while practicing as an RN. The "Red Baron" as I have named him arrived within a few short days. I could normally assemble a walker of this nature and model in 5 minutes or less for my home bound patients. This one with poor dexterity in my own MS hands took me 15 minutes tops. I am short at 5' 2" and I love the feature that allows for a short person up to a person well over 6 feet to use this one rollator walker. The wheels are solid (no air required or flat tires) and roll easily over rough terrain or turf. Perfect for getting some air outside. Extremely safe for those like me that have heart issues and require a place to sit albeit in the middle of a store. The color is fantastic in a deep ruby red making it versatile for male or female genders. The only drawback is that is does not fold up to load into the car..........but it is also only 10lbs and easily fits into the back of my Jeep. I am pleased to make the trade between a folding walker with the extra weight to lift versus this light and sassy one that keeps me INDEPENDENT!!! Highly recommend for children up to senior plus adults. Again, as an RN, the Medline brand was a 'go to' for quality durable medical equipment for in home use.
I am fussy, I did not want to have to use a walker but because I really needed it I originally ordered this Rollator nearly 4 years ago. The freedom I finally had with it changed my mind immediately. I am a photographer and the seat is at the right height for me to sit and shoot and then get up quickly and move on to a new area. It is very easy to adjust for height and I can do that on the fly also if I need to do more sitting than walking. The wheels and brakes are superbly smooth and the only reason I reordered is that instead of dragging my walker up to the cabin every weekend, now I have one at both houses.... Wonderful product, hopefully the company will continue making these as I will continue buying and using it.
I purchased this for my mother after pricing similar rollator walkers at a local pharmacy & big chain stores. The overstock product arrived within 5 days (free shipping), was easy to assemble, & has been reliable. Best of all, it was HALF the price! I am very pleased with this purchase & recommend it for anyone who wants to ensure safety in ambulation for a loved one &#*****;.
