A great dual-purpose mobility aid is the rollator-transport chair combination. More than just a rollator with a seat, in only seconds, these innovative designs allow you to easily convert your rollator to a transport wheelchair and then back again. This means that you can walk with the support of your rollator while you have the needed energy and then be able to sit down and ride transport wheelchair-style with the help of a caregiver. The transport chair mode is a convenient way to move from home to car to a doctor’s appointment, for example, or to be able to ride when you no longer have the strength to walk when you’re out and about and get tired.
Rollator-transport chair combos offer a variety of features that make them versatile, easy to maneuver and easy to take with you. Their foldable design means the rollator-transport chair can be put in your car trunk for long or short trips and will take up little space when not in use at home. Most are made from lightweight aluminum. Be sure to choose a model that will support your weight as well as your back when sitting.
