4-wheeled rollators are the more classic rollator design, with a wheel on the end of each of the four legs, creating a more supportive frame.
4-wheeled rollators can offer a touch more stability than their 3-wheeled counterparts, giving you a slightly more supportive frame.
4-wheeled rollators tend to have seats, bags/baskets, or both, making them a great option for anyone who needs support while walking but will also need to take an occasional rest to recoup some energy before continuing on with their journey. The bags/baskets also offer useful storage for small items, which is handy if you would struggle to carry thinks as well as use the rollator.
If your chosen 4-wheeled rollator has a seat, it's important to remember that you must put on the parking brake before sitting down. This is to help prevent the rollator from rolling away from you at a crucial moment.
