The four types of walkers are standard, rolling, rollator and folding. Standard walkers are more simple compared to the rest, but they require upper body strength to help you move. Rolling walkers are slightly less stable compared to standard walkers, but they have a set of wheels on the front legs which is generally more convenient and can help move around uneven services and make outdoor activities so much easier. Rollators are four-wheeled walkers which bring great convenience and can be paired with add on accessories such as a bag or seat. If you travel a lot or prefer your things nicely packed, consider foldable walkers as they are portable and convenient.

 

Adjustability

 

A good walker is one in which you can adjust to the required height. That way, anyone can reduce or increase the height of their walker accordingly. Adjustability is the quality of a great walker.
