Many standard walkers can be converted to a rolling walker simply by swapping out the rubber tips for wheels. The type of Walker Wheels should be chosen to correlate with your specific walker and your needs. For instance, for a heavy duty walker, the wheels meant for bariatric use would be compatible.
When choosing a walker with wheels, one of the item specifications to take a close look at is the type of wheels it comes with. One popular option is to use the standard walker that you already own and add a set of wheels to it. There are specific types of wheels that are adaptable to certain walker types, such as bariatric wheels for heavy duty walkers, wheels designed for folding walkers, single wheels or double and those that can be locked or left free to swivel. Other models, such as universal walker wheels, have two height adjustments and rear glides.
