I am glad I have a Mabis Traditional Steel Rollator. I am a stroke survivor that has very little use of left hand and leg. This Mabis is great for me inside doing laundry, carrying in groceries, and outside it is great for hauling out 33 gal trash bags to the dumpster. The tires are great on my gravel/loose stone driveway, and they don't bog in the softer loose gravel in my alley. The style lends itself to adapting it for carrying anything I want. I enclosed a picture of it with a 18 gal Rubbermaid rectangle tub strapped on it. The design lets you strap things in the front, with a low center of gravity. This low center of gravity keeps weights lower to stabilize things without getting off balance on uneven terrain. I can put stuff on seat, but it handles much better carried low on frame or in tub.
I wish I found one of these sooner, and I highly recommend this Mabis Traditional Rollator, for people who need security walking, safety doing chores, that don't have full use of both legs or hands. This is the best.
I have a spinal cord condition with ataxia, pain, weakness, and other mobility challenges. This rollator is a game changer! I can walk on gravel now and don't have to worry about uneven sidewalks. I can sit when I need to relieve pain or I am exhausted. Even a small bag used to cause me pain but not anymore because I can place it in the basket. I love the brakes. They come in handy on curb cuts and ramps when waiting for traffic. The seat is comfortable and is strong enough to carry a load if needed, too. I can go up curbs by popping a wheelie with my foot on a back tire. At a cafe, I can use the tray to carry my coffee or food--much easier than with my old cane. It feels solid and sturdy and should last me a good time. Last but not least, I love how it looks like a vintage bicycle! It's cute and people are always telling me so.
My father is 92 and still pretty active, but seat is hard and no back support for elderly.
Do you have add ons for this model?
use a large sorage container on seat filled wiht laundry or bags of groceries and to carry multi school supplies on footrest and seat. I bungee it to the car trunk.(shoulda used a blanket,but oh well) It's gone across the country and back. Big wheels ! If you push front wheels up to a tall curb put foot on back wheel let it pop up onto curb wiht stuff on foot rest and if on seat let that rest against you then curbs are no barrier! This is for people who still want to do stuff. Carried 5 18 gallon bags of greens from student garden we donated recently too. brakes are great for wet or inclines or loading things on and off. This is an active person's rollator. (and small childern like rides on the seat) though i say not reccommended for safety reasons.
I bought this for my 90 year old grandmother. I put it away after she died. After serious medical issues, I at 45 lost the ability to walk. After surgery I graduated to a walker which I happened to own (my grandmother's). People with other walkers stop me all the time wanting to know where I got it. I couldn't remember, but I looked for it so in the future I will have the info to give. The only thing I didn't know until recently is the arms should be low enough that the elbow doesn't bend greater than 10 degrees. This is so much better than my cane. I have fallen several times with my cane but am much safer with this walker. I have another walker that becomes a transport chair with smaller plastic wheels, not rubber, and I have struggled to push over bumps due to the smaller plastic wheels. I know the rubber wheels is what makes the difference. They are larger, thicker and wide with like a bike tread. Honestly the very best chair would be a combination of the walker/transport chair by rollator but on the wheels of this walker with a velcroable back to attach when used in transport form. But regardless, since I haven't found that one, I'd rather take the chance of wearing down and having someone pick me up if I can have the big rubber tires and the wire basket. The breaks seem to break and not work fully,I think since they take a lot of abuse being put into and taken out of the trunk. I bring it to bike stores to be repaired, they do their best but claim the cables aren't interchangeable. So, I have spent the summer in CO in the mountains and the break will hold well enough to step over a curve and to slow me down walking a steep hill. But if I were to "lock" it and sit down at a table, it would go away since the breaks won't keep it stopped, just slowed which is what I need 95% of the time. I can't speak to weight other than to say my parents , near 70, seem to handle it fine. I can't lift more than 5 pounds. Unless they start making a walker/transport walker wit...
