Rollators ($80-$430) tend to have larger wheels than standard walkers, along with a seat bench, basket, and handbrake. A rollator can be good for someone who has more mobility and strength, but may need to sit down occasionally or have a place to stow things. But be aware that larger wheels means it can get away from you easier, Zackowski says.
Insider take: “If I’m using mine to stand while cooking and I’m getting tired, I can just flip it around and sit down,” Bexfield says. But it’s also tempting scootch around on a rollator while seated, and this is a big no-no and can lead to accidents, he notes.
