Walkers and rollators provide balance and stability for those who require assistance when walking. Walkers have either no wheels or two non-swivel front wheels and two rear legs with pads that provide stability. Rollators have four wheels, with the front wheels being swivel casters for maneuvering. Rollators also have braking handles for added safety. Most models of walkers and rollators can be folded easily for transport and storage. Walkers and rollators also come equipped with a seat. Some seat heights are adjustable, providing more comfort for the user. Seats on these devices are typically used for resting as opposed to continuous transport.
Both walkers and rollators are popular choices for those traveling by air, rail or other modes of transportation with confined spaces, as they can be folded down easily.
