Best rolling walker with a seat 2018-2019

I decided to review this model that in my opinion is the best rolling walker with a seat for the task and give you some insights about it.

But, before we get too much into rolling walkers and this model, in particular, let me mention that a medical grade four-wheeled walker with hand breaks and a seat is mostly designed for people with mild-moderate balance problems.

So, the best thing to do here will be to have a physical therapist assess your mobility and balance problems to determine the best assistive device for you. Got it?

Nitro Euro Style Rollator Walker

Device features

No case of physical disability is similar and no all rollator walkers work the same.  I have been training people to ambulate with rollators for years and tested many rollator walkers, but this one in particular in my opinion reunite most features that would recommend for an assistive device of this kind, here is why.

The Nitro Euro Style Rollator Walker is a top of the line device, made for those who are quite active individuals, rehabilitating an injury, surgery or just managing a chronic medical condition with limited balance or endurance.

It is utilized when support is needed for walking with rest intervals, not only inside but also outside the house.

This assistive device is ultralight, due to its aluminum frame with the brake cables running inside the frame for added safety and to prevent to be exposed to catch on things.

The large 10 ” front wheels allow the Nitro Rollator to be utilized on any terrain, indoors or out.

This rollator adapts easily to most people; it comes with flexible height adjustable and removable back, also with height adjustable ergonomic handles.

Needless to say, that the Nitro Euro Style Rollator is easily foldable and does not take much space to store and may easily fit in the rear seat of a car.

Multiple accessories are available.

Conclusion and rating (0-100%) for Durability, Comfort Performance

Everyone who bought Nitro Euro Style Rollator Walker had a wonderful experience using it, some of the users really appreciate the comfortable seat and lightweight of the walker as well as that no wires are exposed to catch on things. Comes fully assembled, smooth, rugged, does what it has been created to do.

In more than a 1000 customer review, only 3% were negative and were related to front wheels’ bearing failing and manufacturer poor customer support.

Another report was that after few months of owning this walker the brakes started losing strength, this is very common for “All”  rollator walkers.

 Most rollator’s brake cables come with a regulator in each end to facilitate adjusting them over time for proper functioning.

It deserves 90% of appreciation,  when compared to other similar products being  20% lighter, without compromise on the frame’s strength.

When choosing rolling walkers, it is vital to take your disability level into account and consult with a physical therapist,  understand that using or transitioning from a front-wheeled walker to a Rollator Walker is beneficial when adequately indicated, but not an easy task, safety and fall prevention has to be a must.

.

Just so you know, I am not affiliated in any way with this brand, I have seen, tested and reviewed many of its products, (like I do with multiple other brands) and they tend to fabricate good quality, innovative, safe and functional devices.

    This is fascinating information on the sophisticated rolling walkers out there which I didn’t know were an option to be contemplating when buying a simple walker.

    I like the fact that it has brakes, suspension and is rigged for comfort.  The oxygen bottle feature is also a great plus in ensuring the person doesn’t have to cut their ‘stroll’ short for lack of oxygen! 🙂

    Your information is in-depth, concise and leaves one with the feeling that you’ve covered most aspects to consider when buying a rolling walker and I myself would look into purchasing a similar one at the right price.

    Thank you for letting us know from your expertise which you believe the best is.  This plays a vital role in choice as one needs to know which rolling walker will last long and be made of quality materials.
