Medline Guardian - Empower Rollator is a walker with a seat and wheels. Rollators are for people who need a place to sit while they are walking. This walking aid combines both versatility and style into one product. This rollator is a deluxe model with lots of extra accessories, such as push down brakes and a reflective tape so that it can be seen in dimly lite places.
Each rollator walker has a memory foam seat cushion that flips up for walking into the unit and a backrest that flips both forward and backward for use on either side of the walker. It is the tallest walker/rollator that Express Medical carries and is height adjustable up to 37". It can easily fit a person who is 5'11" to 6'3" tall.
There are some rollators that adjust by the handle only and some adjust at both the handles and on the legs for a custom fit. The Empower Rollator has both options, allowing for the most comfortable fit. When determining the height of the rollator, it is best to measure from the ground to the crease of the knee. Use that measurement to adjust the seat to that level. Then place the arms at the side with a natural bend to the elbow, measure from the ground to the center of the wrist - this is the hand grip height.
Each rollator has a padded backrest that flips to allow sitting from either side and a seat latch that allows the user to move it for step in support. The adjustment points are bright yellow, a unique feature, this makes them easy to find. Other features include a deep pocket neoprene storage bag, a removable storage tote with zippered pockets, folding cup holder, and tray organizer. Guardian walkers with wheels use loop style hand brakes that push down to lock and pull up to release. Weight capacity: 300 lbs. Empower Rollators are available in blue and black steel frames.
