HealthSmart Ultra Compact Lightweight Rollator
So Good, My Mom Bought 2 Of These!
Initially my Mom purchased a Rollator to keep in my house to use when she visits me in TX about 3x per year. I often take her to places like The Arboretum and museums, and she loved the feature that the Rollator can be used as a chair anytime she wants to sit. Just last fall, Mom purchased a second Rollator to use in her house in NJ. It encourages her to walk rather than ride in a wheelchair. She feels much more secure walking with it because it helps with her balance and it eliminates the worry of walking "too far" and not having a place to sit and rest.
The only caution is that while it is lightweight for younger healthy people to lift and load into a car, it is too heavy for some elderly folks (like my Mom) to lift and put into a car. But if someone is there to load/unload it, or to use in and around her house, it's perfect. Just yesterday Mom told me that she went "Rollating" down her street!
Put on a a brake before you sit down
I read the reviews before ordering this rollator. My message is for lizzie1 who complained that it is not stable and moves when she tried to sit down. Please LOCK it (put on a brake) BEFORE you sit down. If it is still moving you need to replace it because of broken brakes.
One of my best purchases ever
It is very light and easy to handle. Love it.... Would tell anyone that is having trouble walking with a cane go to this walker. it is easy to use.
Heavier than I thought
I was excited to order this item. When it arrived it was considerably heavier than I expected it to be. I'm not challenged in putting things together. However, with this item trying to figure out how to complete the assembly was more than confusing and the directions weren't clear. Out of frustration, I returned the item.
This has been a huge help for me recovering from 2 spinal surgeries and at least 1 more to go. Perfect for when i get tried, i can just have a seat. The purple is gogerous!! I get people asking me all the time where i got it.
I couldn't image my life without it now, i nust dont know why i didnt order it sooner.
This rollator is light weight and easy to collapse and set up again. Fits in the car or trunk easily. It is something this 62 yr old woman can manage alone, which is great! I highly recommend this product for anyone with mobility issues.
This walker is the best one that I have seen in a long time. It is very stable and gives one a safe feeling when in use. The only improvement that I would like would be more stability when trying to sit down on it. It tends to move.
I don't have trouble walking unless it's an hour or more. My trouble is standing for any length of time due to back problems. I love this because I can now go wherever I want because my chair is with me. I don't have to carry anything (also aggravating to a bad back) and this rolls very easily on any terrain, even in the slushy snow of a retail parking lot. I don't have to stand in a checkout line any more. I'm so glad I purchased this rollator. It has given me my freedom back.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
Bought this for my sister and we are totally amazed. Great quality and awesome design. So flexible and easy on her legs and knees. No more having to maneuver heavy shopping carts for body support. I absolutely recommend this product to friends and everyone else who needs aid in getting around with great ease and comfort. THANK YOU QVC!!!
The walker was not light weight. The 2 leg screws would not tighten, seemed to be stripped. It was a clumsy design as the back legs stuck far out behind the walker and I was afraid I would trip. I bought it to keep in the trunk of my car but it would be hard to open the legs and screw in the screws in a parking lot. I returned it, too heavy and awkward
This product is WONDERFUL! My husband purchased this for me and with it I was able to gain some independence. Being a mom with 2 young children and having my mobility impaired, I was no longer able to take them shopping. We can now go shopping and when I need to rest, I am able to sit. This product also works really well on uneven ground and gravel. We also have horses so I can now go and feed them and groom them (while sitting) with ease. My husband no longer has to worry about me falling, It also turns really well, so using it while in small places is not a problem. Again, great product.
I'm absolutely delighted with this product. Easy to assemble, light weight to get around with, and so much easier to get things from place to place than either my old walker or my wheel chair. I too had a problem at first getting the bag on properly, as there are no "rings", at least not what I call "rings"...and as indicated in the directions...but if you look closely on the back at the sides, where the strap is attached, you'll find velcro/material small pieces that will fit where the "rings" are supposed to go...and it works just fine. I do agree that the directions should be in much larger print, but they can be down loaded off the internet product description in much larger print. It's well worth the price for a safe and attractive product.
