There are many things to consider when choosing a walker. Standard aluminum walkers are best for people who need more help getting around, are recovering from surgery, or are at high risk of falling. Some walkers have no wheels and offer the most stability. Others have two wheels in front and rubber-tipped legs in back.

Rollator walkers have four wheels and a seat. They often work well for people who donít need as much help getting around, but require more training on proper usage.
