Topro Rollators FAQs
What is a topro rollator?
Topro rollators, manufactured by Norwegian mobility company Topro, are at the forefront of rollator manufacturing.
These easy-to-use, lightweight rollators are made with the finest materials and engineered with state-of-the-art technology. Designed to reduce the strain of walking, Topro rollators are ideal for use at home or on the go.
Some are foldable for easy transportation and storage, while others have robust, sturdy frames to increase stability.
What are the key features of topro rollators and walkers?
Topro rollators, like all walkers, have a few defining features:
Four wheels: The appearance and size of your rollator’s wheels will change depending on whether they’re intended for indoor or outdoor use. Topro’s outdoor rollators have larger wheels and studded tyres for smooth manoeuvrability on off-road terrains. Indoor rollators, however, have slimmer wheels more suited to at-home movement.
Brakes: Topro rollators have driving brakes that stop the wheels once the handles are pressed. Or, if you do not have sufficient reaction time to press these handles, Topro also offers models with reverse braking systems.
Storage: Most Topro rollators come with a handy, removable shopping bag. Whether you’re stocking up on essentials at the supermarket or need a safe place to store your valuables, Topro shopping bags will make carrying items on your person easier.
How do I adjust the handle height on topro products?
To adjust the handle height on Topro rollators, follow these steps:
Locate the adjustment mechanism: On most Topro rollators and walkers, the handle height adjustment mechanism is near the top of the frame, close to where the handles connect.
Unlock the mechanism: Depending on the specific model, there may be a button, lever, or locking knob that needs to be released or loosened to unlock the adjustment mechanism. Look for any visible locks or indicators.
Adjust the handle height: Once the adjustment mechanism is unlocked, you can typically slide the handles up or down to the desired height. Some models may have pre-set height positions, while others allow more precise adjustments.
Align the handles: Ensure that the handles on the rollator are level with your wrists when your arms hang directly down.
Lock the mechanism: Once you have set the desired handle height, lock the adjustment mechanism securely: this could involve pushing a button, tightening a locking knob, or engaging a lever to secure the handles.
Are topro rollators foldable for easy transportation?
Yes, many Topro rollators are designed to be foldable for easy transportation. Folding mechanisms may vary depending on the specific model, but the general concept is to make the rollator compact and portable when not in use.
You can take it in cars, on buses or keep it tucked away in a storage cupboard at home. If you’re worried about a complicated folding and unfolding process, don’t be! Topro rollators have user-friendly mechanisms that make setting up your device a quick and easy task.
Are topro rollators suitable for outdoor use?
Topro design rollators for both indoor and outdoor use.
Many Topro rollators have large wheels specially designed to handle outdoor conditions. These wheels provide stability and traction, allowing users to easily navigate different surfaces.
The larger wheels are particularly beneficial when encountering obstacles like curbs or rough terrain.
Do topro rollators have weight limits?
Yes, all Topro rollators have maximum user weight capacities. These differ depending on the model, so it’s important to pay close attention to the specifications before checking out.
