The Topro Rollz Motion – A Walker & Wheelchair in one!

A great new product on the UK market is the Topro Rollz Motion, which is a useful walker and wheelchair in one. There are other rollator/wheelchairs on the market but they tend to be heavy and awkward to use. Rollz has listened to users and designed a product that suits their needs. The Rollz Motion is sleek and compact, looks good and is easy to use!Rollz2

Having a rollator that turns into a wheelchair gives you more freedom and flexibility.  The Rollz Motion is an ergonomically designed rollator with a strong but lightweight frame, which enables you to walk safely and securely. And if you get tired while you’re out and want to rest along the way, the Rollz Motion converts easily from a rollator to a wheelchair and back again.

The Rollz Motion is developed and pro

duced by the Dutch company Rollz. As you can tell they have put a lot of thought into the design. The easy to use drum brakes for example offer safe and balanced braking. The kerb assists on the back of the wheels help you get over thresholds and kerbs with ease, meaning you don’t have to lift the rollator/wheelchair up over them. The compact folding design means it can be packed away and put into a car. There is also a range of accessories that go with the Rollz which can be ordered separately such as a travel bag and a cane holder. The Rollz also comes in four different colours!hviyv

Walkers & Rollators – Things to consider

For those who have difficulties walking unaided or experience problems with balance but wish to retain their independence, Walkers and Rollators can provide a valuable solution.
There are lots of different styles of walkers and rollators with different features, so depending on your needs there are lots to things to consider.
Below are some questions you should be asking yourself.

Lets_Go_Indoor_RollatorWhere will I be using it?
There are Indoor walkers which are slightly narrower then outdoor ones so that you can manoeuvre around your furniture more easily, they also tend to have smaller wheels.
Outdoor walkers have bigger more substantial wheels so that they can grip and cope with less even terrain.

Having a seat on your rollator can be really important if you need the occasional break whilst walking, if you want to stop for a chat or just get tired of standing whilst waiting in line at a supermarket.
If you want a seat you will need a four wheel walker if not then a three wheel walker might suit you although they can be a little less stable than the four wheeled walkers.

Depending on whether you will have to lift or transport the walker the weight of the walker could be very important.
The lightest walkers start from around 5kg (think five bags of sugar), and these are made of strong aluminium.
There are steel framed walkers available but these are much heavier and harder to transport. The weight of the walker/rollator also affects its  price: the cheaper the walker the heavier it’s going to be, so don’t be misled by apparent (often online) bargains!

18_troja2gkombiHow do I store it?
Almost all walkers and rollators fold up in some way – front to back or side to side. This makes them much easier to store when not in use (in a corner of a room or cupboard out of the way); those that fold side to side are usually more stable when folded than those which fold front to back.   There are even models which have an additional folding option which makes them more compact – ideal for putting in the boot of a car, the luggage compartment of a coach or the hold of an aeroplane!!

MPB-Rollatorschirmhalter_zommbluedayposterpictureWhat accessories do I need?
Most walkers and rollators come with a bag or basket to put things in, some even have both but there are lots of useful extras such as a cane or an umbrella holder. Trays and anti-slip mats are also available so you can carry drinks etc.
