A 4 wheel walker is a walker that patients use for balance but not for weight-bearing. This type of walker is more comfortable to maneuver around turns and in most cases, does not need to be lifted when turning.
Types of 4 wheel walkers are height-adjustable walkers, wheeled walkers, folding walkers, Hemi walkers, platform attached glider walkers, and rise-assistance walkers.
Walkers help those who tire quickly and those who suffer from health conditions like arthritis, difficulty in breathing, hip problems, and back pain.
Buying tips that may help when buying a walker is trusting someone who knows you well, evaluating how you plan to use the walker, understanding height recommendations, and considering how easy it is to fold and pack up.
