Cognitive AbilitiesDevice 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 AbilitiesIndependent 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.
EnvironmentFour 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.
ActivitiesThis 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.
