Choosing correct walkers for each individual’s needs and preferences can keep that person up and moving about in style. Whether it’s the standard walker with no wheels or it’s a rolling walker with all the whistles and bells, they all help a person’s mobility. Check for features regarding each type of walker.
If you or a loved one is experiencing difficulty walking, walkers can be the best solution. Rather than becoming sedentary, walkers will help keep you up and moving. There are all sorts of models and styles to choose from, including simple walkers that you lift with each step all the way to heavy duty rolling walkers, which can have three or four wheels, carrying baskets, hand brakes and built in seats for stopping to rest. If you’ve had recent foot or ankle surgery, you can consider knee walkers. Look for the features, sizes and weight capacities compatible with your situation.
