Choosing a Walker
When it comes to home health care products, the walker is possibly the most common purchase. Not only is it used for the elderly, walkers can also be used by anyone who has difficulty getting around. But with so many types of walking aides, how do you know which one is right for you? It all comes down to your level of mobility. If you only need minimal help and just a bit more balance, then a cane is probably best. The most common type of walker, is the basic walker without the wheels. These are best used on indoor surfaces. Because they have no wheels, they provide the most stability.
Wheeled walkers provide extra mobility and are good for those who have more trouble with walking. They are also easy to use outdoors. Wheeled walkers are perfect for those who need more stability and need to walk over uneven terrain. A rollator is a walker that has wheels on all four legs. These allow for the greatest range in movement. Many models even offer swivel wheels and hand breaks. They usually have a small seat and basket too. This makes them great when out and about.
