Wheelie Walkers and Rollators
Wheelie walkers, rollators or walking frames (also known as zimmer frames) are standing walking aids that are ideal if you need some support to get around. Essentially a walking frame with wheels, a mobility walker is moved by pushing your arms forward on the handlebars. The four wheels make wheelie walkers and rollators easy to move and very stable.
The majority of 4-wheel walkers have handbrakes for added safety. These differ from model to model but can include loop-locks brakes, bicycle-style brakes or pushdown brakes connected to the handlebars.
Many wheelie walkers have a seat, which makes them ideal for getting out and about in the community, and storage for personal items or shopping depending on the model.
Friendly Society Pharmacy has a range of rollators and walking frames in different sizes, weights and heights. Each has a folding mechanism that makes it easier to transport and store. Some models include a backrest and bonus walking cane holder. We also sell Carbon Fibre walkers.
Walking frames, canes and crutches
Friendly Society Pharmacy also has a range of other walking and mobility aids including folding walking frames, crutches, walking sticks and folding walking sticks and crutches.
