    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.

    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.

    I just got an Alinker. You may have seen Selma Blair in photos or videos on one. I am able to walk for short periods, standing is hard. I am trying to build strength and it was appealing to me because it allows me to use my legs without the weight on them. I really wanted to be able to do things like walk my dogs, go to museums, shopping, etc. I am hoping it will give me more independence. So far, it has been very hot here in Nashville and using it outside has only happened a couple of times. The dogs love it! We went to the museum and it was fantastic on the hard surfaces. The carpet took a bit more work. We are going to Chicago in a week and I am very excited to use it there.  I have found that the slightest hill takes some work, but flat surfaces make me feel like I am flying. It folds up easily and only weighs 26 lobs. and is the same footprint as a wheelchair.
