Over the last several years, a new item has hit the market place for seniors; that item has proven to be immensely popular. I am referring to rolling walkers, also known as rollators. With adjustable height handle bars, seats for resting on, built in storage baskets or bags for carrying personal items, hand brakes to slow the unit down on ramps and such, these things are simply wonderful devices.
I personally think that the concept came from the shopping carts that we all use at our local grocery store. Somebody was watching how well folks could walk by resting their forearms on the shopping cart handle and decided to come up with a small, lightweight, folding unit that would give the user the same degree of relief. (I wish I had been the one smart enough to come up with that idea!)
Available in a multiplicity of colors, designs, weight capacities and wheel sizes, these rolling walkers have proven to be the cat's meow for many, many men and women. In fact, I was at one of our local retirement facilities the other day and almost every person I saw was using one of these to help them get around more effortlessly.
