    My son and daughter in law gave me a  voucher for Christmas for a walker . I picked this one, and I love it!  What do you use to help keep you mobile?  What are your mobility aids of choice? Drive nitro euro walker.

    Hi Ed

    Yes, I should have mentioned it’s super easy to fold, and can slide in behind the front seat. There’s a pull handle on the walker seat. Just pull up and it folds.

    I have two but only use one as  I find it more steadier and solid, Trust’s Lets Fly, and the one I use Access TGA Active, both are 4 wheeled and both have larger wheels at the front.

    The larger wheels really help don’t they Jackie. I notice them especially being outside and for making turns.  so much better !

    Yes they certainly do, plus I would never trust a three wheel rollator. Debi, what i like about our rollator’s are that they dont have those ” ugly ” sticking out to the sides, brake cords, I really dont like seeing those on show.

    Yes! My last walker had those brake cords. They would get caught on things and one  eventually broke!

    I just got the Drive Nitro rollater, tall, and absolutely love it. I went to my local mobility store to see what aids would be available in the future, you know, for when I need it, thinking this was purely a fact finding excursion. I currently used a cane but was noticing my shoulders and neck muscles were getting tired which told me I was employing more muscles to maintain my balance than I thought. As soon as I tried the rollater I was able to walk faster with much less effort and I realized the future was now! I went home and couldn’t stop thinking about it and knew I had to buy one.

    Drive has come out with a new model called the Nitro Duet which has foot and arm rests so a caregiver can push you in it while seated. It’s called a rollater/transport chair. I was going to get it but it was on back order and I didn’t want to wait and figured I could always get later.
