What is the difference between a walker and a rollator?

When choosing between walkers and rollators, the fewer wheels, the greater the stability. To get some helpful hints on walker and rollator wheels, read our blog post, Your Guide to Walker Wheels.

Transport chairs have four small wheels. They are lightweight and easy for a caregiver to push. The user will require assistance moving from place to place. A traditional or standard wheelchair has two large back wheels, with rims that can be reached and pushed by the person sitting in the chair. They are heavier than a transport chair, but allow the user to independently move themselves through accessible areas.

What is the difference between a power chair and a mobility scooter?

Many of them offer a level of stability, speed and traveling distance that make them suitable for outdoor use. Scooters generally come with three or four wheels.
