The difference between a walker and a rollator is, wheels. A walker has four legs and all four legs stay in contact with the ground when you are moving but the walker must be lifted in order to move forward. A rollator is often called a “rolling walker with a seat” and has four wheels and brakes and does not need to be lifted to move forward. Rollators are easy to maneuver because the wheels swivel but Rollators tend to be large they can be difficult to maneuver inside small apartments or narrow hallways. Walkers aren’t as easy to move and navigate but they are more stable since all four legs stay on the floor, this makes a walker the better choice if you have issues with balance. Walkers can also partially support your weight while you are walking or standing.
If you have issues with balance, weakness while standing, or need a firm immobile support to help you walk, you should not use a rollator and you should use a walker instead.
