I use it to do my laundry, take out the trash, and pick up my mail. That keeps my hands free to hold on to the handle and keep my balance.
Cons:When empty, it is a little too light, if you push down on the handle, it will raise up in the front. I put a couple phone books in the basket when I go to pick up my mail.
Overall: Yes, I would recommend this product.
have been looking for this last 3months,for my mom 84yrs old.
I bought this for my 85 yr old mother and now she gets so excited about shopping. It is very sturdy. She uses it like a walker for balance while she is shopping. Folds up easily for storage in the closet.
