Bad news, everyone. In your late 30s you begin to shrink. Or maybe you’re super tall and you think that’s good news. If so, congrats!
Why do we shrink? The discs between our vertebrae lose fluid causing our spine to shorten, the arches of our feet flatten, and as we age we lose muscle mass causing poor posture. That’s one reason the elderly are often shorter. It’s also a reason petite rollators are so popular.
Petite rollators are exactly like regular rollators, just made for smaller users. Typically their seat height and weight capacity are lower. We sell several here at Just Walkers, but these are the 4 we most recommend.
1. Invacare Value Line Junior Rollator
At only $109 (at the time of this writing) our least expensive petite rollator is also the best value. It may not have many bells or whistles but it’s easily maneuverable, stable and comfortable. It also folds for storage and comes with a basket for personal items.
This hemi rollator from Mabis comes with a comfy, cushioned flip-up seat. It’s easily foldable for storage and includes a walker basket. It comes in either Titanium or Royal Blue and has a 300 pound weight capacity.
The Clever-Lite offers front wheels which can be locked into a fixed position or set to swivel, depending on the user’s preference. It folds easily for storage, has a flip-up seat, and also features a 300 pound weight capacity.
4. Invacare Junior Rollite Rollator
The junior version of Invacare’s popular rollite rollator offers a flip-up seat, easy folding, and a 300 pound weight capacity. It’s available in both red and blue.
