Benefits of walkers with wheels
Lifting isn’t needed
Can be used on uneven surfaces
Navigating uneven outdoor terrain with a walker without wheels can be hard and stressful. The movement of lifting, pushing forward, and placing the walker down again can be tricky when the floor is not even. It may cause your walker to get stuck in bumps or cracks, making it difficult to continue on your journey. Because of this, walkers without wheels are mainly recommended for indoor use, as most outdoor surfaces are irregularly shaped. To assist you during outdoor excursions, a walker with wheels is more suitable as it allows for easier control when facing changing terrain conditions which are often encountered outside.
Keeps users active
By taking proper steps to remain active, seniors can maintain their independence longer, as well as enjoy an improved quality of life. According to a comparative research review, walkers with wheels enable seniors to walk for more extended periods when compared to those who use non-wheeled walkers. Not only do wheeled walkers provide a solution for the daily activities of older adults and secure a safer environment for them, but they also make it easier for seniors to move around within their homes and even outdoors. In addition, the pick-up and transport of these items are much more manageable since walkers with wheels often feature locking brakes on each wheel; these sometimes come equipped with a mouse-like pivot on the front wheel, allowing users to make quick turns while they’re on the go. As such, providing mobility devices with both indoor and outdoor movement capabilities can be essential in helping seniors stay active and keep living their lives independently.
Downsides of using wheeled walkers
Cannot bear body weight
Heavier than standard walkers
