What are the best four wheel walkers available? These are the best rollators in the UK
There are a lot of 4 wheel walkers available on the market. While they all offer the same purpose, they are not all the same quality or value for money. I have put together a list of the five best four wheel walkers on the market today.
When looking for a new walker, you should consider the price, build quality including reliability and features such as locking brakes, shopping basket and if there is a seat. You may also need to consider if the rollator folds up so it can be stored away.
5: The Lightweight Aluminium Rollator
Starting off our list of the best walkers available on the market today is the excellent R8 rollator by Drive DeVilbiss. The walker is not particularly attractive by modern standards, however I usually go for function over appearance. This walker has all of the usual features such as locking brakes, and a fold up seat with storage basket underneath.
The basket under the seat is not particularly large but will be large enough to carry small essential items. The rustproof aluminium lightweight frames means that this rollator is easily transported in vehicles or to move it when storing in the house.
The swivel front wheels are solid and therefore puncture-proof. If you are looking for a budget four wheel walker, the R8 would be a good buy.

4: The X-Cruise Rollator
The X Cruise rollator is a very modern looking walker with some nice features. It has a canvas seat and backrest which will be suitable for people upto 21 stone (135kg).
With it’s locking brakes and built in walking stick holder, the X Cruise has some really advanced features for what you could call a budget price. The X Cruise has a well sized removable shopping bag which should be large enough to carry a decent amount of shopping.
This rollator has a built in cane or walking stick holder, usually you would have to buy these seperately.
With over 150 satisfied customers who have reviewed this walker, this walker is a favourite with us. Previous customers commented on it’s bargain price, excellent build quality and the large storage bag. This walker can be folded easily without the use of any tools so it can be stored or transported easily.
3: The Diamond Rollator
When writing these reviews, I take into account a number of factors. Two of the main things I take into consideration are appearance and function. This rollator by Drive Medical ticks both of those boxes. It is a little more expensive than most walkers, but you are paying for a large number of features and an attracting, modern design.
Made from Aluminium, the Diamond rollator is extremely lightweight meaning it can be easily transported. The large wheels mean that the Diamond rollator is suitable for use indoors and outdoors.
The height of the handles can be adjusted to suit the user so it can be used by smaller or larger people.
When putting a list together of the best 4 wheel walkers, the Drive Diamond Rollator has to be considered as one of the best.

2: Folding Rollator with Seat
The folding rollator with seat is a similar design to the Gemino, just a little cheaper. For the lower price you can expect slightly less build quality however the products we have tested performed well.
One of the major selling points of this walker is how lightweight it is and the fact it folds to an incredibly small size. This means that this walker is very easily transportable.
This rollator is fully height adjustable to it should be suitable for most users

I hope you found something of interest in our list. Rather than just finding cheap walking aids, I concentrated on finding high quality walkers at a good price.
Rollators are sometimes known as walkers, mobility walkers and disability walkers.
In this list I have tried to include at least one rollator that will be suitable for everyone whether it be a walker with a seat, locking brakes, storage bags and baskets.
There are a number of reasons that someone may require assistance when walking, often it is just a temporary situation following ankle surgery or leg surgery. A four wheeled rollator will be one of the first disability aids that someone will buy and one of the most important, they give the user confidence and independence. They are commonly used by people who suffer with arthritis, mobility problems and old age.
