There are three main types of walking aids: Standing Walkers, Knee Walkers and Rollator Walkers.
Standing Walkers - These are the no-frills models. Standing Walkers models fold, making them easy to get in and out of the car or store away in a closet. A standard folding walker without wheels is a simple, lightweight device. A user must have enough arm strength to pick up the walker and move it forward one step at a time. Most therapists consider a standard walker the most stable solution for those needing a little extra help.
Two-wheel walkers, which provider easier mobility, are also available for use by a person who doesn’t need quite as much support but is not stable enough to use a four-wheel rollator.
Both types of walkers can be adjusted to accommodate various user heights and are available in both folding and non-folding options.
Rollator Walkers - These offer the greatest range of mobility and have front swivel wheels that help with turning. They are equipped with handbrakes that allow a patient to stop the rollator when needed. Most rollators also feature a padded seat and backrest to use when resting as well as a basket or pouch for carrying personal items.
Knee Walkers - Also known as knee scooter, orthopaedic scooter, knee cruiser, knee coaster, knee caddy, or leg walker. Knee Walkers are a medical mobility device that provide a safer, more comfortable, and easier-to-maneuver alternative to crutches for those recovering from foot or lower leg injury or surgery which requires the foot and/or leg to be non-weight bearing during recovery. Knee Walkers are designed for weight-bearing relief for those who have injuries that include: fractures, diabetic wounds/ulcers, torn Achilles’ tendon, sprained ankles, or surgery to the foot/ankle. They can also be used for partial or complete amputations of the foot while waiting for the wound to heal and fitting of a prosthesis.
