Why Choose a Standard Walker with Wheels?
A standard walker with wheels in front doesn’t require you to lift up the entire walker off the ground in order to take a step, and is therefore ideal for use by anyone with limited upper body strength. A 2 wheeled walker has an additional advantage over it a 4 wheeled walker; it’s more secure and less likely to slide forward, away from the user.
How to Use Medical Walkers with Wheels
Using a standing walker with wheels is effortlessly simple. All you need to do is hold onto the handles, and push gently forward. There is no lifting involved when using a walking frame on wheels to get from one place to the next.
Safety Tip #1: When using a 4 wheel or front wheel rolling walker, always make turns slowly and carefully!
How to Use 2 Wheel Walkers
Using a 2 wheel walker is simple. One must merely lift the rear end of the walker just a bit, and slide the walker gently forward before taking each step. The two wheel walker with brakes allows you to move more easily, but, at the same time, provides you with stable, dependable support.
An ambulatory walker with wheels and brakes makes it substantially easier for the user to get from one place to the next. It reduces the amount of friction between the ground and the walker, and, ergo, allows for the user to exert less effort in order to maneuver the walker around, but, at the same time, it allows you to stop safely. If you have a standard walker, but you’re finding pushing it around to be strenuous, it may be time for you to switch to a wheels walker.
Safety Tip #2: Don’t push the metal walker with wheels too much forward; make small steps.
