The best mobility walker depends on the specific needs of the person . cost, weight , wheels /no wheels . What ever walker you decide on it needs to be adjusted to the size and the personal needs of the person
desides on is a concern for a lot of people
The best adult walker can only be determined by the needs of the person and should be taken in consideration when choosing the best adult walker. Myself the things I look for in a walker is the wheels, (must have wheels )
as pushing compared to lifting is much easier . “MUST HAVE BREAKS”
Having wheels is a must but with out breaks it can get out of controle FAST.
sizing of walker
THE FREEDOM IT GIVES YOUI cant express the feeling I get when I can “GET OUT” with friends and family.
I cant put into words how much I enjoy my freedom
and the benefit I receive from my walker. Independence is really important me and my walker gives that to me
The bottom line is this FREEDOM is everything . Do what you can as long as you can and BELEIVE in yourself and do all that you can . Life is good and with the mobility aids that they have today make it possible for people like me to have happy and productive lives.
When searching for walking aids for the elderly, certain needs of the person need to be taken into consideration.
1. height of the person
Setting up ones walker specifically to there height is very
important and should be done per manufactures suggestion .
2. Intended use , in or out door usage
Much thought should be given when choosing a walker because what works inside may not be what you need out doors. I use 4 wheels on my walker when outside but I find inside that’s not always thee case
I can only speak from experience and what I look for in a walker ad several over the last 18 years . Stability is probably the most important needs that I require as confidence is the key to success
Height of a person , the correct sizing is also very important and needs to be taken into consideration when choosing a walker
Intented use indoor or outdoor usage. I found a walker with wheels is a must , as I have very little endurance and pushing is much easier than lifting
Seating , is another important need that one should take into consideration when choosing a walker . I need to take breaks and having a walker that allows me to do that is a must.
A 4 wheeled mobility walker is the type of walker that suits me best for the following reasons—-
1. pushing is much easier than lifting for me as it requires less energy.
2. allows me to accomplish tasks I would not even at tempt with out it
My 4 wheeled mobility walker gives me a sense of freedom that I thought I lost. I am able to go places and attend things today that without the use of my walker that would not be possible . I enjoy getting out and being apart of the world especially doing things with family. My walker gives me that gift. My wish is that everybody is able to keep there independence and enjoy life to its fullest.
The best mobility walker will depend on the needs of each person . I made a list of conditions that I think one should consider before choosing the best mobility walker
1.Types of usage(inside/outside or both)
2. The weight and size of the of the individual
3.The needs of the person
exercise, in home needs, and all purpose needs ( every day needs )
4. Out doors–( stronger built )
suited better for the people with a more active life style that require a sturdier walker
5.weight & features
The bottom line is this–
Keep in mind that each person has there own individual needs that should be taken into consideration when choosing the correct walker.
