HealthSmart Ultra Compact Lightweight Rollator
The best purchase EVER
I bought this for my 81 year old Dad who has neuropathy in his feet and has poor balance. Without this he could not get around at all. He has been asked many times where he got it and was told that it was the 'Cadillac' of walkers. He loves it and says to me every time I see him that he could not function without it. That warms my heart.
The only downsides are: 1) He is 6'-3" and the handles are about 3" too short for his height. I can't get anyone to answer the phone at the number QVC gave me to see if there is a way to extend them. 2) The wheels should fold up more easily than having to remove 4 screws.
All in all a great product! Thanks QVC.
I like using it when I am food shopping, going to museums, outdoor walks etc. I like the ability to sit down and it is much more manageable than other walkers I have tried with a seat. The broad base give good room foe my feet. However it is too big to use in my condo and using a traditional walker for daily hospital treatments or going in a movie is better. This walker I use for particular purposes. For those purposes it is great.
I saw this advertised 2 years ago and last year u finally ordered one and really like it. It is easy to use and unfold.
Love this Rollator!!
One of the best purchases I ever made! The cane was just not helping that much anymore. I was given a 2 wheeled walker that was fine in the house, but didn't do so well outside. I did some net surfing for rollators and came across this one. Lucky me I got one in the purple. I have had so many compliments on not only the color, but the style. You are right, this is not your Grandmother's walker!! I keep this one in my car so I have it ready to use when I am out and about. This also goes to work with me. It has been a great help since I have a distance to walk once I get in the building. Having a seat is also a great feature plus the fact that this is a folding rollator! I would highly recommend this rollator for anyone who has difficulty with ambulation. It sure has helped me get around since I have arthritis in both knees!
It is great
Received the Rollator today. It is just what I needed. We are going on a trip in a few weeks in our Corvette it folds small enough that it will fit in the trunk and make my trip easier. I have looked all over for one that folds small and couldn't find one. My other walker also came rom Q.V.C.Thank -you for having this.
Everyone wants to know where they can get one!!!!
I have mobility issues. Now I can go ANYWHERE I want! My family and I went to the Mall of America recently. I could go into ANY store and not have an issue with having too big of a walker in too small of a store space. It was great. I walked more in that weekend than I have in a whole year put together, and it's because I felt safe walking. My kids and I took the trip without my husband (he had to work) and it was the first time in years without him because I felt safe enough with the walker to be able to go without him. For years if he didn't go, we didn't go. What if the next bench would be to far away, or we wanted to get groceries but had to choose between groceries and my old walker because of limited trunk space !!! Well, those days are gone! Thank you health smart rollator andQVC!!! This is easily a purchase I will never regret.
P.S. Easy pay also made it possible too. Thank you for that.
Peace of Mind
This item is fabulous. I have MS and therefore a balance issue. This aids me in stability and a feeling of security while walking. I don't know why I waited so long to purchase. It glides over carpeting on a dime and has a great turning ratio. I highly recommend this for anyone with a disability.
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.
