The Many Benefits that Adjustable Walkers with Seats Can Provide
Almost all rollators are height adjustable, and that’s a good thing! Adjustable rollators are an easier and faster way for disabled and older people to get around. Stationary walkers need to continuously be lifted off of the ground and then moved forward, while adjustable rollator walkers can simply roll on their wheels. This can provide numerous benefits for their users, such as the following advantages.
Less Exhaustion for the User
Because the wheels of adjustable rollator walkers stay on the ground, users can save a lot of energy when it comes to maneuvering them. Since users don’t have to lift their adjustable walkers with seats with each step, they may experience less fatigue and even increase their stamina so that they can walk more as time progresses.
Rollators with adjustable seat height can help people to have better posture. When using a walker, a person may need to lean forward on it more often, and this can cause their upper spine to curve over time. This can lead to more back problems and discomfort, as well as walking problems in the future. By being height adjustable, a user can ensure proper posture and keep from being “hunched over” while using them. This can help users to straighten their back properly.
A Convenient Place to Rest
Everybody likes to take a seat once in a while, and this is especially true of handicapped and elderly people. As we age, our bodies and energy levels are not as high as they were when we were younger. For handicapped users, there is often a need to rest frequently because they suffer the same issue. Therefore, many people have to take more resting breaks, but it may be difficult to find a place to sit down. Having a height adjustable walker with a seat can enable the users to conveniently sit whenever (and wherever) they need it.
Versatility for People of Various Heights
Of course the primary benefit of a rollator walker with an adjustable seat height is the fact that it is height adjustable. Each individual user has unique height and size needs, so it’s important that a manufacturer can cater to this with the utmost in quality by providing products which the users can use regardless of how tall they are. Therefore, it’s important that when they purchase a walker, whether it’s a hemi rolling walker or any other option, they are able to fit in them regardless of how tall they are themselves.
Height adjustable walkers with seats can be adjusted in many different ways. Some models feature a seat-to-floor adjustment, which allows either the wheel height or base to be adjusted. Other models may have handlebar adjustments that can allow the upper arms and handles to be adjusted. The best adjustable rollators, though, are the ones that are able to be universally adjusted on both the top and the bottom in order to accompany the arm height and seating height properly. Walkers with adjustable seat height can accompany taller users regardless of their height so they can walk and sit comfortably, enabling them to get in and out of their seat easier and faster.
Tips for Using an Adjustable Walker with a Seat
A person should use an adjustable-height walker with a seat in the proper way to ensure their safety. For example, the first rule of thumb is that in order to properly use any walker or rollator, they need to make sure they walk while in between the handles, not behind them. Walking behind the walker causes the user to “hunch over” more. There are other tips that can help users benefit from their adjustable rollator:
Don’t Forget the Accessories
Many people don’t realize that there are accessories that can help them carry belongings with them. There are even cup holders for adjustable walkers! These are a great choice, because while the walker can be adjusted to a person’s comfort level, so can the attached accessories.
Make Sure the Wheels Fit
Depending on what a person is going to use a walker for, they may want to ensure that their adjustable walker can go indoors and outdoors. When choosing and using a walker, a person should always make sure the wheels are appropriate for the terrain. Many walkers that can handle travelling on multiple terrains have larger wheels than those that are meant primarily for indoor use. The materials that they are made of may be slightly different too.
Keep in Mind Total Weight
Some people may think that they’re fine if they weigh 240 pounds while using a 250 pound weight capacity rollator. However, this doesn’t account for the fact that once they add 11pounds of other items (such as oxygen tanks, drinks, their personal belongings in the basket, etc.), they’re actually exceeding the weight limit of their adjustable height rollator. This means that they can actually be considered to have voided the device’s warranty. Exceeding the weight capacity of a rollator can also decrease the lifespan of the model, just as it would any other medical walking aid or wheelchair.
In order to get the most out of any height adjustable rollator, it’s extremely important to operate the device well under the weight capacity. If a person may be close to the weight capacity, they should consider buying a model in the next capacity range. They also need to determine whether or not they should purchase a bariatric rollator. Some people actually prefer bariatric adjustable rollators over the standard ones simply to ensure that they have extra stability.
