ROLLATORS AND WALKERS

Falling or tripping is the main reason for injuries for patients and elders, and walking aids can reduce this risk significantly. Walking accidents include minor bumps but can also lead to severe injuries such as fractures and breakages.

Walking aids comes in many shapes and sizes. A rollator or a walker is a common alternative to improve mobility in the home and reduce the risk of falling. At Patient Handling, we have a wide range of rollators to suit specific needs. Things to consider when purchasing a rollator or a walker is the height, weight, size of wheels and the price.

The Peak Care Economy Lightweight Rollator is one of the lightest and most transportable walkers at Patient Handling. The rollator is ideal for moving around the home and comes with handbrakes at all times to ensure control for the user.
