Canes vs. Walkers vs. Rollators

Cane vs. Walker

There are many variables to consider when deciding between a walking cane and a walker. Walkers are the most commonly prescribed assistive ambulatory device, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the best option for you. An obvious advantage of a walker is the ability to grasp it with both hands, providing a stable structure for the user. However, this advantage comes with a caveat: users are unable to carry additional objects - an ability they would have with a cane.

In addition, walkers are bulky and can be difficult to maneuver in tight spaces, especially on stairs. What's more, a certain amount of exertion is needed to move a walker forward, causing strain that may be uncomfortable for the user. A strength test is necessary before buying a walker. Be sure to speak with one of our specialists.

Walker vs. Rollator

Not sure whether to invest in a walker or rollator? This is another decision based on several factors. Ultimately, it comes down to the lifestyle of the user; the different places he/she walks, the activities participated in, the level of supervision and budget. As you might have guessed, rollators are walkers with wheels on each leg, offering much more maneuverability - especially since the front wheels turn. Some even come with the added benefits of a padded seat.

Walker vs rollator
This functionality offers an advantage over wheelchairs as well: rollators are more compact, so they're ideal for indoor movement. And, because rollators never need to be picked up, it spares the user's arm and back muscles from repetitive lifting. The main disadvantage? They're considerably more expensive than walkers.
