Dr. Roby Taylor Myers, Owner & Lead Chiropractor at East Coast Elite Chiropractic-Sports Performance & Rehab
I appreciate all the support over the last 2 years while setting up my new practice. I have had successful results with over 90-95% of my patients with disc injuries/ neck/ back pain in utilizing the DTS table as a stand alone treatment. I will be honest- it was a tough decision initially because of the financial investment/ commitment while I was starting practice. I am glad that I decided to integrate the DTS into my practice from the start because of the referrals and the wonderful response from my patients. Thanks again for all your help over the last 2 years and continued support.

SHOPPING GUIDE: BEST WALKERS FOR SENIORS
Elderly people are at a high risk of falls in the home environment. They may have trouble with upper body strength or balance due to health issues or a disability. Our complete care shop for disabled adults and the elderly stocks a full range of walking aids, disability aids, and transfer aids to keep you or your loved ones safe.
Common Mobility Aids for Older People
Older people benefit from the use of disability aids even if they do not have a disability. For example, navigating a set of stairs can be risky for an older person with age-related vision or balance issues. Disability aids, such as stair lifts and portable care equipment like canes and cane seats, can help to mitigate the possibility of falling. Other beneficial stability aids include forearm crutches, ambulation gait belts, walkers, mobility scooters, and rollators. For those who need to remain seated, wheelchairs and mobility scooters are ideal.
BEST-SELLING WALKERS & ROLLATORS
Types of Walkers
When considering mobility aids for seniors, walkers are probably the first to come to mind. Standard walkers can either be rigid or foldable for easy storage and offer a high maximum user weight, making them ideal for disabled people who are overweight or need to limit weight-bearing on the lower extremities. Rollators, or walkers with wheels, are common mobility aids that you can use if you have an issue with balance. You should avoid putting pressure on rollators, though. The main advantage of rolling walkers is their ability to glide along with you as you move; while standard walkers require must be lifted with each advancing step. Walkers and Rollators are also available with optional features like built-in seats for those who need to rest after a period of time.
BEST WALKER WITH A BUILT-IN SEAT
If you tire easily, a walker with a seat keeps you safe and comfortable. The Drive Medical Drive Duet Chair/Rollator is the best option in this category. It features a wide, stable seat that can be flipped up when it's not in use. The seat's cushion and fold-up removable back support are padded for your comfort. This walker weighs 19 pounds, which puts it in the mid-range for walkers with seats. A pair of hand brakes lock the wheels for safety while you're seated.
BEST ECONOMY ROLLATOR
With features like a padded seat, curved backrest, and loop brakes for quick and easy stopping the Freedom Basic Walker with Wheels is the best folding rollator you will find for your hard-earned dollars. This economical rollator is lightweight (weighing only 10 lbs), easy to maneuver, folds for storage, and offers height adjustability from 31” to 35” (floor to hand grips). It comes standard with a storage basket and will work for individuals under 250 lbs between 4’10” and 6’2” tall.
BEST WALKER FOR COMPROMISED BALANCE
If you need to take frequent or long breaks due to balance issues, try the Freedom Rollator. The cushioned seat and curved backrest offer comfort when you need to sit for a while. The seat position accommodates people ranging in height from 4’10” to 6’2”, and it has a weight capacity of 250 lbs. You can push on the grips to stop. This four-wheel rollator also has a hand brake and folds up to fit in narrow spaces. Weighing just 10 pounds, its lightweight design is a great choice for travel. This rollator includes a basket, strap and bag for additional storage.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Which optional wheelchair accessories are most important to have?
In today's market, wheelchairs are used for more than a means to get from one place to another, and accessorizing has made wheelchair transport more comfortable, efficient, and safer. For instance, accessories like transfer boards, seat cushions, back cushions, safety belts, wheelchair gloves, table trays, and wheelchair carry-all bags accommodate wheelchair users to new levels of safety and comfort.
What are the different types of mobility aids?
People with injuries, disabilities, and weaknesses are more at risk of falling. Fortunately, mobility aids like the Tracer EX2 Wheelchair allow them to move independently, confidently, and with less pain. Several other mobility aids assist people with various mobility issues, including mobility scooters, walkers, crutches, canes, and wheelchairs like the Drive Medical Lightweight Aluminum Transport Wheelchair. In addition, there are guide dogs for the visually impaired, chair lifts, and handrails to assist people with all types of mobility challenges.
How do I decide between a cane and a walker?
The function of mobility aids is to assist you in moving about safely and comfortably while allowing the more able parts of your body to get the strengthening exercise they need. With that thought in mind, canes and walkers offer varying levels of assistance. So, if pain and weakness on one side of your body make it difficult to walk or keep balanced, a product like the Driver Offset Handle Aluminum Cane is your best choice. However, if you are unstable on your feet, a walker is the better choice.
How do I use a gait belt to transfer a patient?
After washing your hands, you can apply the belt while the patient is comfortably sitting or lying. A belt like the Scott Belt and Transfer Sling should fit tight enough to stay in position but loose enough for you to get a firm grip. If your patient is weak on one side, you should ensure that the strong side faces the fully locked wheelchair. Next, stand very close to the patient with your back straight, knees flexed, and legs in a wide stance. Then, grasp the gait belt on each side, and assist the patient to the wheelchair smoothly and directly.
What is the lightest weight rollator walker?
The lightest rollator you can find is 10 lbs. This weight is the minimum a rollator walker can weigh and perform all the functions required for this mobility aid. For example, the Freedom Rollator weighs only 10 lbs. But it can support 250-pound users ranging from 4'2 to 6'2 in height. In addition, the Freedom Rollator's light weight makes it highly maneuverable and easily folds for tight storage.
Does Medicare cover rollators?
What are the different features available on a rollator?
Features including four wheels, hand brakes, padded seat, backrest, storage bag, and foldability make the rollator a better choice over traditional walkers. Of these features, the four-wheel set-up is the most significant advancement in upright mobility. Rollator wheels are plastic. But rubber wheels work better on smoother surfaces. Since rollators assist people with deficiencies in strength and stability, the hand brakes and locking devices are critical for controlling the walker's speed and stopping ability, particularly on ramps and downhill terrain. Unlike traditional walkers, the rollator users can sit in a built-in chair and carry more items in the storage bag. In addition, other rollator features like the Molded General Use Wheelchair Seat Cushion make the walkers more comfortable and convenient for the user.
Where can I buy mobility aids at the best prices?
Although many online and in-store retailers offer mobility aids, ScripHessco offers top-of-line mobility aids at the best prices. They offer industry-approved walking canes, crutches, transfer belts, Gel-E 3 Wheelchair Cushions, lightweight transport wheelchairs, and a transport chair/rollator combo.
