Walker Wheelchair

As a bit of an ideas person, I love this. As you may know, I am lucky enough to live by the sea in Devon. During the hot Bank Holiday weekend, I saw lots of these being used along the seafront.

I love the idea that primarily they are a walking aid, encouraging someone to maintain their mobility but understanding that they may need a rest is sensible. I have seen people being given a ride, pushed along on similar devices but with no footrests. This would pull on hip muscles and is not necessarily the best idea safety wise.

They cost £145 with VAT relief and can be bought from The Complete Care Shop

  1. I tried commenting before but it didn’t go through for some reason, so am trying again!

    I’ve not seen this particular one you’ve mentioned but we use a similar thing called the Rollz – https://www.yorkshirecareequipment.com/p/mobility/rollz-seated-wheeled-walker/

    It’s great for us as we only have a small KA car and so we don’t have room for both a wheelchair and a walker. My husband says it’s not as comfortable as his custom made wheelchair but to be honest he mostly uses it as a walker anyway! It’s one of our better purchases I’d say!

    I must say it’s one of our better purchases – we only have a small KA car so we don’t have room for both a walker and a wheelchair. This does the job – my husband says it’s not as comfortable as his other custom made wheelchair but to be honest he mostly uses it as a walker anyway!
