Rollators are compact and adaptable walking aids that perform well both indoors and outdoors. Also known as “rollator walkers” or “rolling walkers”, these devices have four wheels, with the front two wheels being swivel casters for better maneuverability. This separates them from traditional walkers, which have either no wheels or two static front wheels.
Rollators are designed to be highly portable, and most fold up for easy transportation in the trunk of a vehicle. Unlike walkers, rollators usually come standard with a padded seat, which allows the user to sit and rest when travelling longer distances.

A rollator is a four-wheeled walking aid that is designed to provide additional support and mobility for users who are still able to walk.
The weight of a rollator varies by design and construction. In general, a standard rollator walker will weigh around 20 pounds, while smaller aluminum or carbon fiber rollators can weigh as little as 12 lbs. On the other hand, a bariatric rollator can weigh up to 25 lbs or more.
Most rollators are designed to be adjusted without the use of tools. This includes everything from handle height to back support angle and more. Please check your product’s user manual for specific details.
