It can be challenging to decide between two different products, like a cane and a walker, for example. A cane is fairly basic and it’s also the least bulky option. There are various models, so you’ll be able to find one that matches your needs. It’s ideal for users who have mild to moderate balance and stability issues. There are quite a few benefits of using a cane, which include affordability, portability, and typically quite easy to use given how lightweight they are.
Walkers & Rollators
In some cases, you might require more stability. If this sounds like you, then you might want to consider a walker instead. This four-legged mobility aid is designed for users with significant balance issues who are at risk of falling. You can choose either a standard model, which is made out of an aluminum frame with a broad base, or a rollator. Most standard walkers are height-adjustable. This model is best for users who have enough upper body strength and coordination to lift the walker and move it forward. The rollator is basically a hybrid of a walker and wheelchair. It comes with four wheels and hand brakes, which is best for users who struggle to lift a standard walker and move it forward.
