A 4 Wheel Walker is a mobility device that helps people with disabilities get around. It can be challenging to find the right Walker for someone’s specific needs, so we’ve put together this guide to help you decide which Walker is best suited for your situation.
What is essential to know about this?
The first questions that should be asked are related to the person’s weight and height. If they’re under 5’2″, then an adult 4-Wheeler might work well. For those over 5’2″, there are many different models available, including some specifically designed for women or men.
Walkers are available that suit any weight range as well. Another important consideration is the terrain on which your 4-wheel Walker will be used and whether you’re more concerned with indoor or outdoor use.
Most 4-Wheel Walkers are designed for indoor use, so those with larger wheels and a broader base will be more suitable for outdoor terrain. Some walker models have seats that fold down to make it easy to get in and out of the unit. If you only need a 4-wheel occasionally, consider renting one from your local medical equipment store instead of buying outright — doing this may cost less than purchasing a used Walker on Craigslist or eBay.
We hope this information has been helpful to you.
