Struggling with mobility issues can be a stressful experience. Not only for your body but your mental health. You may feel disheartened when simple tasks become difficult, or you cannot walk the distances you’re used to.
Using a rollator will help boost your confidence back to where it once was. If you lack balance, rollators are the perfect walking aid for keeping you safe and upright. Not only this, but their wheels mean you always have contact with the ground.
Rollators give you a break no matter your location, and they are perfect for use in public venues. If browsing aisles at the supermarket has left you exhausted, take a breather on your seated rollator. Rest your feet and recuperate until you feel ready to continue your day.
If you just need added stability, consider purchasing a walker rollator. They are a more low-budget alternative for those who just need extra balance.
Rollators are distinct from standard walking frames because you don’t have to lift them while taking steps. Instead, you can wheel rollators in front of you quickly and smoothly.

What is a rollator?
Rollators are mobility aids with a sturdy frame, handlebars and three or four wheels, depending on your chosen model. They can also come with a built-in seat to support users who need regular breaks while out and about.
Rollators provide stability, reduce fatigue, and are available in different types for indoor, outdoor, and all-terrain use.
How is a rollator different to a walker?
The difference between a rollator and a walker is their wheels. At the bottom of a rollator frame, there are typically three or four wheels that can make it easier for the user to move.
Walkers require the user to lift the frame with each step, but rollators can be manoeuvred with little upper-body support.
They often come with additional features like a built-in seat and storage compartment. In contrast, walkers have simpler designs, are lightweight and easy to store.
What are the benefits of using a rollator with wheels?
Using a rollator with wheels can greatly improve your mobility, quality of life and overall comfort:
Their wheels allow for smooth and efficient movement, meaning users can get around and complete daily tasks more easily. The added stability of the wheels and frame can prevent falls, providing greater confidence for users while walking.
Rollators also take less physical effort to use, which can help users conserve their energy while walking. They’re versatile mobility aids that users can operate indoors and outdoors: this is excellent for users who require mobility assistance in various settings.
Do you have rollators with seats?
Yes! At Millercare, we sell a range of rollators with seats. Stocking over 15 industry-leading brands, we sell products from Able 2, Uniscan, One Rehab, Homecraft and more.
Our rollators with seats provide the users with a constant resting option, whether they’re navigating indoor or outdoor terrains. The brakes on rollators with seats can help prevent falls and provide added security when stopping or standing up.
How do I choose the right size rollator for me?
When choosing the size of your rollator, you’ll want to consider your height. Stand upright with your arms at your sides. Then, by yourself or with assistance, measure the ground to your wrist: the top handgrips of the rollator should be at this height for optimum support.
If you’re choosing a rollator with a seat, you’ll need to ensure that you can sit comfortably with your feet on the ground. Likewise, you should check the weight capacity of your preferred rollators so that they adequately support your body weight.
Lastly, if you plan to use your rollator indoors, measure your home's doorways and compare them to the width of your rollator. Doing so guarantees you don’t face obstructions when travelling from room to room.
Are there different types of rollators for sale?
Yes, we stock various rollator walkers, seated rollators and rollator frames.
How is a rollator used?
You should use a rollator by first adjusting the height of the rollator so that the handgrips are wrist-level. Keeping your back straight and shoulders relaxed, stand behind the rollator and hold the handgrips with both hands.
Move the rollator ahead with each small step, keeping your weight centred over the rollator rather than leaning forward or backwards. If you want to stop or slow down the rollator, you can always engage the brakes by pushing down on the brake handles.
Do you need to turn a corner? No problem! Simply pivot on one foot and use the opposite handgrip to guide the rollator in the direction you’re travelling.
Can a rollator be used on uneven terrain?
Yes, but you’ll need a rollator specifically designed for outdoor environments. Look for models with larger wheels and sturdier frames for extra stability.
When navigating uneven terrain, take small steps and maintain your stability by walking slowly. By using the handgrips, centre your weight over the rollator and guide the rollator in your chosen direction.
