While walkers and rollators appear to be quite similar, there is a key difference. A walker has four legs, all of which stay on the ground as you move. The user must lift the device as they move forward. The legs on walkers do not come with wheels, however there are accessories available that allow the device to slide forward rather than having to be lifted. A walker can be used by those who are in need of partial body weight support. The main purpose of this device is to help the user maintain their balance while they walk.
A rollator is a better choice if you experience weakness while you’re standing or need additional support to assist you in walking. This device is often referred to as a rolling walker or wheeled walker. All four legs on the rollator have wheels that slide forward, which means the user does not need to lift the device to move it as they walk. It’s important to note that a rollator should not be used to support body weight as it can result in falls. This device comes with a seat and some models have removable backs for improved balance while sitting.
