Basic Information About Types of Walkers in Calgary
There are three basic types of walkers to choose form and each has a variety of features that cater to your specific needs.
Standard Walkers in Calgary
These are the more basic types of walkers in Calgary. Usually made of aluminum, they’re lightweight and durable. You can choose from a rigid model or one that folds when space is at a premium.If you’re having trouble standing on your own, this may be the perfect solution. You use them by lifting them a few inches ahead of you and then step forward to meet them, all while using them as a support to keep your balance.
Front-Wheeled Walkers in Calgary
If you have a better sense of balance, but still need some assistance in walking around, the front-wheeled walker may work for you. The wheels on the front of these types of walkers mean you don’t need to lift them when walking. You just push the front part along. Front-wheeled walkers in Calgary can be used both indoors and outside and can be a great help if you’re walking on uneven terrain.
Sometimes called Rollators, these walkers are the most robust of the group. If you can stand on your own but still need assistance in walking longer distances, this walker is your best choice.
Unlike standard and front-wheeled walkers, rollators have wheels on all legs. Their handlebars also have brakes, which makes it easy to control the speed of the walker. These four-wheeled walkers in Calgary often feature a seat that you can use to rest when you feel tired, and baskets that can carry personal belongings or even be used for a few groceries. There are a wide variety of rollators to choose from and many of them fold to easily stow away or fit in a trunk when travelling.
