Do rolling walkers adjust for people of different heights, weights and sizes?

Virtually all models and styles of rolling walkers have several different adjustments that can be made to accommodate for different heights. With that being said there are still some very definite issues that need to be addressed for those that are above average height and weight and those that are petite in size. Generally most rolling walkers and standard walkers will come in two basic sizes, youth and adult. Youth sizes are typically for individuals between four feet four inches and five feet three inches and adult sizes go up to six foot three. Different manufacturers may have slightly different sizing options. Typical rolling walkers can support people between 250 and 300 pounds, again depending on the specifications of the individual model. Using a rolling walker if you are over or under the size specifications can pose a safety issue. This is because the handlebars or grip bar and the seat can only be adjusted so high or low to maintain the stability and safety of the walker.
What is the basic difference between a two, three and four wheeled walker?
Two and four wheeled rolling walkers have four legs and a square to rectangular shape of frame. Two wheeled models only have wheels on the front two legs, allowing for a very stable, secure walker that is easy to move yet very easy to control. Four wheeled walkers have wheels on all four legs, making them easier to maneuver and walk with over longer distances. Both two and four wheeled rolling walkers have hand brakes that are similar to brakes on a bicycle, operating easily from the hand grip position to lock the wheels and prevent the walker from rolling forward when not required. Most two and four wheeled rolling walkers also have a flip up seat, some have a backrest and even additional padding on the seat for comfort.
Three wheeled rolling walkers look like a tricycle on the base. The front wheel typically swivels for easy turning and cornering even in very small spaces such as bathrooms and elevators. Three wheeled rolling walkers may or may not have seats depending on the model and design. Three wheeled walkers, like the two and four wheeled models may also come with additional features such as carrying baskets, totes and water bottle holders. They also have adjustments for height on the handles plus those with seats do have adjustment for the heights of seats as well.
Some two, three and four wheeled rolling walkers can also be folding walkers, making them easy to transport and move about with on public transportation. All rolling walkers from reputable manufacturers will also have warranties from the company, typically which include manufacturer's defects on the frame as well as limited warranties on the brakes and other features of the walker.

I've had this walker for two years. It is great that it fits in the trunk and car easily. It has great brakes and I love it more than my other walker
