This trendy looking device by OasisSpace is their ultra folding rollator walker model, with it’s bright blue color, quality build and wider seat, it’s a real joy to own. The paint quality is much higher than some devices due to the paint it uses. The back rest is solid and the wheels have added grip for outdoor use.
9. Drive Medical Heavy Duty Nitro Walker
If you are looking for a walker which supports extra weight the heavy duty nitro walker by Drive Medical is a great option. With added suspension and large front tyres with extra grip, it provides extra stability and support to the user. It comes with an extra padded seat and back rest for added comfort.
10. Drive Medical Nitro Elite Carbon Fiber Walker Rollator
Okay, we saved the best for last! This one is a bit extravegant in terms of price, but if you’re looking for something to last you a long time and that’s super light, this is definitely the walker for you. It weighs less than half of all of the other walkers available at just twelve pounds, it’s ideal for someone who would struggle with the weight.
Rollator Walkers: Our Verdict
After reviewing 100s of Rollator Walkers we’ve managed to compile our top ten above. The brand Drive Medical is mentioned quite a lot (as you might notice) as they’re by far the most widely purchased brand.
All of the Rollators we’ve featured have locking breaks (we definitely wouldn’t include any without).
All are relatively lightweight and fold easily.
Some have some nice perks like a comfier seat, stronger back rest and we’ve included a couple of speciality ones (the carbon fibre model from Drive) for those who may need something extra lightweight. And the heavy duty model they provided if you need some extra support.
If you’re after something solid, good value for money with raving review we’d recommend either the Drive Medical Nitro Euro Style Walker or the Evolution Medical Rollator.
But overall, you wouldn’t be disapointed with any of the choices above.
