Full Description

The Dolomite Alpha is a special rollator designed specifically for users who deal with the added complexity of walking with arthritic or stroke conditions. The unique, adjustable forearm supports or platform option allow for maximum stability. Alpha also offers two braking systems to accommodate the specific needs of the user.

Features

  • Frame construction maximizes stability and encourages proper posture and balance
  • Forearm supports adjust in angle, width, and depth
  • The individually adaptable handgrip can be adjusted in height and laterally in angle
  • Unique brake grip is extremely easy to use and allows for limited hand dexterity.
  • Platform support available.

Cognitive Abilities

Device users must be able to understand the environment and their relationship to it. Intact spatial awareness allows users to safely navigate their surroundings without bumping into people and objects and adjust their speed/use their breaks as needed (on inclines, uneven surfaces etc.). This device is not recommended for people with balance and/or visuospatial perceptual disorders.

Functional Abilities

Independent use of this device requires functional use of both arms. While users can have reduced strength, they must be able to grip with their hands and have purposeful movement in their arms. Users must also have strength in both legs and be able to walk independently. This device is appropriate for people who can balance, but need a place to sit frequently for breaks, or need help carrying necessities.

Environment

Four wheeled rollators can be used both indoors and outdoors. Devices with wheels that are greater than 8” in diameter are better for rough terrain. Smaller wheels can be used outdoors, but function better on smooth and level surfaces.

Activities

This device is intended to compensate for and improve restricted walking (range and/or mobility). It is ideal for activities that have limited access to seating for breaks (outdoor walks/shopping) or require the user to carry multiples objects while walking (shopping/running errands). Their front swivel wheels provide excellent maneuverability indoors and in smaller spaces like elevators and public washrooms.
Warnings

Please speak with your healthcare provider and schedule an in-person consultation before purchasing this product, to evaluate whether it is truly the best option for you.
