Combination Rollator Transport Chair

Combination rollator walker and transport chair are a fairly new product line created by walker manufacturers in the last few years. Because it became obvious to some manufacturers that people were going to use rollator walkers as transport devices in spite of the safety risks of riding on them they redesigned their products to accommodate the users.

The combination rollator transport chair is used from behind just like any other rollator walker when the user is walking but when the user is tired and needs to be pushed the backrest is reversed, a foot rest is lowered on the front and the user sits on the seat facing forward while a care giver pushes the walker from behind.

Height Adjustment

Height Adjustment

Setting the proper height for a rollator transport chair is the same as any other rollator and is important for the comfort, safety and posture of the user. Generally the top of the walker's hand grips should be at the same height as the user's wrist where it meets the hand when the user is standing as upright as they can. The important thing is there should be a small bend in the user's elbow when using the walker.

Unlike the standard walkers where the handle height is adjusted by moving the wheels up and down, most rollator walkers are adjusted by adjusting the handles up and down.

How to Use a Combination Rollator

As a Rollator Walker

Using the rollator transport chair is pretty straight forward. The user has the walker in front of them, steps into it from the rear and pushes it forward at the same time. The pace is fairly conventional for walking instead of the stop and go pace of a standard walker without wheels. Because the front wheels will swivel, the walker should never have to be picked up by the user while in use.

The user can operate the brakes while walking to slow down and stop or locked on. The brakes should always be locked on when the user is in the process of sitting or standing, whether they are using the walker seat or another seating surface and when they are seated on the walker resting.
