Introducing the EZ Fold-N-Go Rollator HD: The Durable and Portable Alternative for Bariatric Mobility Needs
If you are a professional care partner or a family caregiver, then you know that having the right mobility aid can make all the difference when it comes to providing quality care. That’s why we’re so excited about the new EZ Fold-N-Go Rollator HD—with all the features and benefits of traditional rollators but with added convenience and portability. Let’s take a look at what makes this innovative product such a game changer.
But first, let’s talk about bariatric rollators and why they can be helpful. A bariatric rollator is an aid designed to provide support and improved mobility for higher-weight individuals who are also experiencing limited mobility due to a medical condition or age. These devices often feature a sturdy, four-wheeled frame along with a seat. In addition, the frame is typically designed with heavy-duty steel tubing to support up to at least 400 pounds.
The use of a bariatric rollator can be incredibly beneficial for those in need of extra support when navigating through their environment. It can help reduce the strain on the individual’s lower back as they walk, while also reducing their risk of falls by providing stability as they maneuver around corners or move from one place to another. Most bariatric rollators offer adjustable features so that it can be customized depending on the individual’s size and needs.
Not only does this type of mobility aid offer convenience and comfort for those using it—it also gives peace of mind to family members and care partners who want their loved ones to remain safe while still having the freedom to move around independently. With a bariatric rollator like the EZ Fold-N-Go Rollator HD from Stander, individuals can enjoy improved mobility without sacrificing any safety or security measures needed for optimal care.
What to know before purchasing a bariatric rollator
Before investing in a rollator to make mobility easier, it’s important for caregivers and users to understand the advantages and limits of this equipment. Here are some key points that may help you decide if a walker is the right choice!
Maximum Weight Capacity
Bariatric rollators are designed to provide maximum comfort, support, and stability for patients usually ranging between 250 and 500 pounds. Their heavy-duty construction ensures a sturdy, rigid frame that stands up to the weight of bariatric patients with ease. Manufactured from high-quality materials, these four-wheeled machines can help bariatric patients to feel more comfortable and secure than ever before.
Adjustability is an important factor when selecting a rollator for a patient. The height of the handles should be adjusted to fit the individual’s measurements for good posture and comfortable walking. If the fit is incorrect, improper posture can cause not only back pain, but also misalignment of joints in the body that can lead to more serious conditions such as scoliosis. It is recommended that the handles be adjusted to the height of the user’s wrists to sit in a comfortable position when pushing or pulling the rollator.
“I really love the EZ fold-N-Go Rollator HD. It’s a quality product. The fact that it is able to hold 500 lbs is awesome. Sitting on it is comfortable and it moves with ease. By far the best I’ve owned.”
Portability and Convenience
When you are shopping for a rollator, it is important to consider its portability and convenience. You want to make sure that the rollator you purchase is lightweight enough to carry and store easily, yet still sturdy enough to provide the necessary support. If you plan on travelling with your rollator, make sure that it is compact enough to fit with ease in the trunk of your car.
Wheels are the stars of any rollator show! Not only should they swivel with ease for larger users, but their heavy-duty construction allows them to tackle both indoor and outdoor terrains. If you plan on taking your rollator inside narrow spaces then a 3-wheeled rollator may be best. But if it’s long distances that beckon you or straight paths outside in nature, a 4-wheeled rollator will be important.
Handles and Braking System
Most rollators come equipped with a hand-brake system to easily and safely stop you mid stroll. Loop style brakes are the most common, however some also offer locking wheels for extra security when stationary. Rollators that have ergonomic handles are more comfortable and easier on arthritic hands for daily use. When choosing a rollator, make sure hand grips are comfortable and brake handles are easy to reach and not too hard to squeeze.
