Is a 4-wheel rollator the right choice?

Choosing a walking aid is not that simple. There are so many different models and ranges! Between classic walkers, rollators with or without wheels, single, 3 or 4-legged canes, how do you find your way around? Perhaps the most important thing is to be able to identify the walking aid that best meets your needs.

To help you do just that, why not take a closer look at the benefits of a 4-wheel rollator, and more specifically at Wheeleo®, the new-generation 4-wheel rollator.

A 4-wheel rollator, but which one?

Walking aids can be divided into two main groups:

  • accessories without wheels, such as conventional walkers: these consist of a metal frame resting on static feet fitted with non-slip caps. These walking aids offer one or more points of support on the frame’s side bars, or on the ergonomic handles on the side bars. This type of device enables frail people to use their upper limbs to provide solid support for safe movement. Depending on the width and bulk of the walker, this type of walking aid can be used inside a home or institution, space permitting. This is a particularly important point to consider when choosing a walker. Few places offer enough space to handle this type of cumbersome equipment.
  • wheeled accessories such as rollators: these come in a wide variety of forms and can be fitted with 2, 3 or 4 wheels, depending on the model. Each has its own advantages and can easily be used for both indoor and outdoor travel. Thanks to their wheels, they offer a continuous support point, which differentiates them from conventional walkers.

Among these rollators, and 4-wheel rollators in particular, the Wheeleo® is a real plus with its attractive, space-saving frame and excellent maneuverability. He’s really not like the others!
