Medical supplies: Adjustable Height Rollator with 6" Wheels

The Adjustable Height Rollator with 6-inch Wheels is part of mobility devices available at Discount Medical Supplies. This walker includes a seamless padded seat with a zippered pouch under it to carry personal belongings more privately and securely.

Features

·         Easy to use, deluxe loop locks.

·         Easy to grip, height-adjustable, ergonomic handles.

·         Removable, hinged padded backrest that can be folded up or down.

·         Serrated brakes.

·         Universal height adjustment on frame allows seat height to be adjusted from 18 to 22 inches in 1-inch increments.

·         Caster journals are offset for strength and durability.

Pros

Unlike traditional walkers, which put users in the conundrum of having to find a place to rest if they get tired, this  high quality, sturdy, easy to maneuver rollator comes with a padded seat. The wheels roll very smooth. The breaks work well. Convenient hand breaks are located on both handles. Users can also push the hand breaks downward to lock the wheels from movement, just as one would the wheels on a wheelchair. Furthermore, this is a very lightweight rollator walker. The seat is attached by a hinge, and is easily lifted to reveal a storage compartment. This product offers the added benefit of being height-adjustable.

Cons

Some users choose this model mainly because of its dual height adjustability (overall height and seat height), but it is precisely because of the seat height adjustability that it may not fold up very easily.

Recommendations

Assembly

·         Remove all contents from the package.

·         Open the frame and place it upside down on the floor.

·         Secure in place with the tightening knob, threading the knob in from the outside.

·         Repeat for the other leg, ensuring both legs are set to the same height.

·         Attach the back legs – with brakes – using the same process, ensuring the wheels are on the outside of the rollator and at the same height as front wheels.

·         Affix the brake cable to the black portion of the leg using an S-shaped clamp.

·         Insert the handle tube into the frame and set to the desired height.

·         Secure in place with the tightening knob, threading the knob in from the outside. Repeat for the other handle, ensuring both are set to the same height.

·         Note that the back rest can be folded up when not in use.

Adjusting handle height

·         Remove the tightening knob from the handle.

·         Set the handle to desired height.

·         Replace the tightening knob into the handle, making sure to insert the knob from the outside.

·         Repeat for the second handle, making sure that both handles are set to the same height setting.

Adjusting leg height

·         Remove the tightening knob from the leg.

·         Depress the push pin and slide the leg to the desired height.

Loop lock

·         Pull up slowly on loop locks with four fingers until unit slows down or comes to a temporary stop.

·         Press down on both loop locks with palms until a “click” is heard indicating that the wheels are locked.

·         Push up on both loop locks with palms of hand to original position to release wheel locks.

Safety

·         Make sure the Rollator is fully opened, the seat is down and the folding bar under the seat is locked in the down position.

·         Make sure that both knobs are completely tightened and at the same height.

·         Test the rollator for stability prior to applying full weight to the hand grips.

·         Test the loop locks prior to operating the rollator.

·         When the wheels are locked, lock bar on rear wheels should prevent the wheels from turning.
