I have some balance is- sues along with arthritis in my knee and could use a little more help than a cane provides. Unsteady at 70 with hand arthritis or gripping prob- lems, there are rollators with push- down brakes that engage with down- ward pressure, and will lock if you sit on the seat. Rollators typically run between $75 and $225. Dear Unsteady, When it comes to choosing a walker, there are various styles and options to consider, but selecting the best one for you will depend on your needs, as well as where you'll be us- ing it. Here are some tips that can help you choose. Types of Walkers There are three basic types of walkers on the market today. To help you choose, consider the type of sup- port you'll need. Then, pay a visit to a medical equipment store or phar- macy (see erDirectory) that sells walkers so you can test-walk a few. Here are the dif- ferent types you'll have to choose from. Standard walker: This is the most basic style of walker that has four legs with rubber-based feet (no wheels), is very lightweight (around 6 pounds) and costs between $50 and $100. This type of walker must be picked up and moved for- ward as you walk, so it's best suit- ed for people who need significant weight bearing support, or who are walking very short distances. Two-wheeled walker: This has the same four-leg style as the stan- dard walker except it has wheels on the two front legs that allow you to easily push the walker forward without lifting, while the back legs glide across the floor providing support while you step forward. These are best for people with bal- ance issues, and are priced at around $60 to $120. Rollator: This is a rolling walk- er that has wheels on all four (or three) legs. These work best for peo- ple who need assistance with balance Other Tips After deciding on a type ofwalk- er, there a few additional things you need to double-check to ensure it meets your needs. First, if you're a large person, make sure the walker's weight ca- pacity will support you. And if you choose a rollator, check to see if your body can fit between the handgrips when sitting. Also make sure the height of the walker is set appropriately for you. To do this, stand with your arms re- laxed at your sides. The handgrips of the walker should line up with the crease on the inside of your wrist. You also need to check that the walker folds easily for transport and storage, and that it's light enough to lift into your car. Test the handgrips to make sure they're comfortable. And, be sure you measure the doorways in your home to ensure your walker will fit through them. If you have narrow doorways consider installing "swing clear" off- set door hinges as a simple and af- fordable way to widen them an ex- tra two inches. Walkers also have lots of acces- sories that can be added for your convenience such as food troy at- tachments, tote bags for canying per- sonal items, oxygen tank holders, and tennis ball walker glides that go over the feet of a standard walker to help it slide more easily across the floor.
