Useful Tips to Help You Decide

A wheeled walker can reduce the risk of falling and help you to
remain independent.

The weight of the models may be a deciding factor, walkers are made
from either aluminium or steel.

A wheeled walker will provide much more support than walking
sticks and more manoeuvrability than a walking
frame.

3 wheeled models are not as stable as 4 wheels and most of them
do not offer a perching seat.

The larger the castor, the easier a walker is to manoeuvre over
difficult surfaces.

Some companies offer accessories such as oxygen cylinder holders and
a crutch or cane holder.

Some walkers can be used with one hand.

Consider removing loose rugs and excess furniture to make it easier
and safer around the house
