How to properly use a Rollator?

  • Adjust the height: Make sure the rollator is adjusted to the correct height, so you can comfortably walk with it. 
  • Walk behind it: Push the rollator in front of you, walking behind it and holding onto the handgrips. 
  • Take small steps: When using the rollator, take small steps and use your arms to push the rollator forward, instead of relying solely on your legs. 
  • Use brakes: Make sure to use the brakes when stopping or slowing down, especially when going downhill. 
  • Avoid obstacles: Avoid obstacles such as curbs, loose carpet or wet surfaces, which can be slippery and dangerous. 
  • Store items in basket or pouch: Use the basket or pouch on the rollator to carry items, so you don’t have to hold them in your hands. 
  • Keep the rollator clean: Regularly clean the rollator to ensure it is functioning properly and to maintain good hygiene. 
  • Seek help if needed: If you have difficulty using the rollator, ask for help from a family member or caregiver, or consult a healthcare professional.
