Walkers and rollators are designed for people who need additional support and stability while walking.
Rollators include wheels on all legs (three or four, depending on the model), whereas walkers come without wheels or with wheels on the front two legs. All rollators have hand-operated brakes and most four-wheel rollators come with a seat. Walkers are adjustable to accommodate the height of the user.
