Are you or a family member having difficulties getting around? If you are looking to get a bit more stability on your feet, a walker could be a good starting point for you. Once you have made the decision to purchase a walker, the next step is to choose the one that is right for you!
How to Choose a Walker for Narrow Spaces
When choosing a walker, make sure to think about the spaces you will use it in, both within your home and when you venture out. There are walkers designed specifically for narrow doorways which can give you more flexibility and allow you to go more places without having to leave your mobility aid behind.
The choice of wheels (otherwise known as a rollator) or no wheels should depend on your comfort. Rollators have more ability to roll making them a better option if you need a little extra help getting around. If you desire stability, a walker without wheels would be a better fit for your needs. Make sure to really consider what will make you feel the most comfortable to use before you buy!
