MOBILITY

ELDERLUXE presents a wonderful collection of unique walkers, rollators and other walking equipment for both indoor and outdoor uses. These assistive aids help in rehabilitating injured users and to allow users with more temporary or permanent disabilities the ability to move more independently. With or without wheels, walkers and rollators will give users more freedom to travel where and when they wish.  You will find our selection of brands like Etac, Trionic, Access, Volaris, Standers, Dolomite, Medline and Drive to fit your individual needs for a walker or rollator. Rollators are also called rolling walkers because they perform tasks less than those required for a wheel chair and a bit more features than a standard walker. Unlike a traditional walker which must be lifted and set down each time a step is made, a rollator is pushed using the forward wheels. The wheels provide greater mobility than a traditional lift and place walker. While the wheels provide added "speed" most if not all rolling walkers or rollators feature hand brakes as well.  For added comfort, many rollators also have a seat (some a padded seat) so the user can take a rest when needed. Baskets are another popular feature on many of the ELDERLUXE.com models.

 
Rollators are manufactured in a variety of styles and designs. Designs for rolling walkers include both 3-wheels and 4-wheels. The former is easier to maneuver in tight indoor spaces while the latter provides greater stability due to more touchpoints with the road. We feature portable and light-weight rollators for primarily indoor use. The lighter heft makes them easier to travel and store. Our heavy duty rollators are designed for outdoor use where a more rugged rollator is warranted and where the pathway may not be so uniform. Our heavy duty walkers are designed from heavier gauge aircraft grade aluminum with larger, more durable wheels to be able to travel over more difficult outdoor terrain.
 
Walkers with & without wheels
 
This is the standard walker you see everyday. Built with telescoping aluminum supports, the standard walker is a great way for individuals with injuries or disabilities to get around. Better support than a rollator. SEE/Click: Rollators (Rolling Walkers)
 
A rollator is basically a standard walker with tires attached. Unlike a regular walker, a rollator doesn’t involve the lift that a normal walker requires. Makes walking a smoother process. A rollator however requires that the user be stable enough to not let it get away from them since it has rolling wheels.
 
Knee walkers can be utilized by individuals that have an injury in one leg. They are a perfect alternative to crutches and allow an individual to move without pain or difficulty.
 
 
 
Choosing a Walker or Rollator
 
Before purchasing a walker, rollator, or other walking aid be sure to keep these considerations in mind.
 
Height of the user– If the walking aid is too low, it will encourage bad posture. Make sure to purchase with this in mind. Many walking aids have the ability to adjust for height considerations. Click HERE for a quick guide to measuring yourself for a rollator.
 
Weight of the user– If the walking aid can’t support the user than it is virtually useless. Make sure to verify the maximum weight capacity.
 
Handgrips– Most walking aids have either molded plastic or foam rubber handgrips. Some handgrips can be adjusted to the users preference. There are also options in handgrips that are specifically designed to spread weight over a wider area of the palm.
 
3 Legged Frames– Three leg frames allow for greater maneuverability but are less stable than 4 legged frames. Great for getting through smaller spaces.
 
4 Legged Frames – Four leg frames are more stable allowing the user to maneuver through tougher terrain. Since they are bulkier, they may not be good for tight spaces. Good for individuals that go outside.
 
Wheels(for rollators) – The wheels of your rollator can be large or small. The larger they are the easier it is to get over tougher obstacles. Smaller wheels are more suited for indoor use. Wheels can also be fixed or have a swivel.
 
Brakes (for rollators)– There are three types of breaks in a rollator. Pressure, cable, and locking. They all have good points and bad. Make sure to ask your supplier for information on the strengths and weaknesses of each type.
 
Indoor vs Outdoor – Two walkers may be the answer. A rollator for outdoor use and a standard walker for indoor. If you have separate levels to your house or apartment you may also consider getting one for each flour.
 
The key to better mobility and safety is correctly matching the walking aid to the user’s needs, abilities, limitations, and environment.
