Below you’ll find some products reviewed by our local “panels” on their effectiveness and worth. Hopefully these will be helpful to you, too!

Drive Medical Four Wheel Rollator with Basket

There’s going to come a time where you just don’t trust your knees. Or maybe for you, it’s your hips. Or possibly both! Rather than being unsure of your next steps, this walker will be there for support, and the time out to sit down for awhile, whenever you need it! It’s more than convenient being that it is foldable, too. The basket is removable, if at times you may not need it. While you can use these to push someone in, it is not always recommended. Cracks in the pavement and sudden inclines, or inclement weather, can cause the Rollator to tip over when being used as a chair or seat. This is NOT something that should deter you from this quality walker/seat, however. This is just something to remember so you don’t make the same mistakes that we did!! These retail from $40-300, depending on the style and brand you purchase. Click the link above to read the rave comments on!
