Advantages of 3-Wheeled Winnie Walker Rollator Over 4-Wheeled Rollator
The following are the differences between the 3-wheeled rollator and 4-wheeled rollator:
- Presence of a seat
The 3-wheeled version has no seat. The 4-wheeled version has a seat. A seat is particularly important for users who constantly need to rest like patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD patients suffer from shortness of breath and fatigue. As such, they need a seat to rest from time to time. People who do not need to constantly rest are better off with the 3-wheeled type.
- Indoor or Outdoor Use
The four wheels of the 4-wheeled type make them ideal for outdoor use. While the 3-wheeled type can be used in less tougher outdoor terrains, this type of walking aid is ideal for indoor use.
With one wheel less, the 3-wheel type weighs lighter than the 4-wheel type. A lighter walking aid is advantageous when you are travelling often. This light version can easily be folded and carried.
