WALKER WHEELS / REPLACEMENT WHEELS FOR WALKERS
AvaCare Medical has a wide variety of replacement wheels for walkers. The well-known reality is that over time, walker wheels can wear down and require replacement. When such occurs, there’s no reason to worry; simply browse through our selection of replacement walker wheels, and find the one that will best suit your preferences.
Aside from being used as replacement walker wheels, these wheels are also an ideal option for anyone who is interested in adding wheels to their standard walker,
Benefits of Walker Wheels
Walkers with wheels offer users improved speed and mobility. While rollators may offer less stability, standard walkers with two wheels on them can offer both increased stability and mobility for users. By having medical walker wheels on a walker (in 2-wheeled models), users will likely only experience a slight decrease in stability. There are many benefits of having a wheeled walker, though, such as the following.
Less Fatigue for Users
People often notice that they often experience more fatigue when using standard walkers than when using other mobility aids, such as rollators, manual wheelchairs, and canes. Having two wheels is great for users who find constant lifting to be difficult, since when maneuvering a two wheeled walker, only the rear legs need to be lifted off of the ground in order to move forward.
These wheels also decrease the resistance that would be caused by using the legs alone, or even by using walker ski-glides (which are normally only used indoors). We also sell rear wheels for walkers that can be attached to the model to further improve mobility and reduce fatigue. However, in this scenario, a user will sacrifice a little more stability and security of their walker.
