Overview and Features
Typically, when you’re shopping around you’ll have no trouble finding a wide variety of rollator walkers to choose from in different styles, shapes, and sizes. But rarely will you come across one that’s designed to easily handle the outdoors. While the Patrol can handle both indoor and outdoor use, it’s obvious that it’s really at home outside. This walker is truly unique and can be the perfect fit for more active people.
However, it’s not recommended for people with debilitating conditions including advanced feet problems in the elderly, since the large rolling wheels can make it difficult for some people to control the walker.
Designed for Outdoor Use
The Patrol is a rollator walker that excels at outdoor use. The four large oversized ten-inch tires allow the walker to smoothly move over a variety of terrain types with ease. The durable rugged frame design is perfect for people who enjoy the outdoors or live in rural areas. The walker can provide users with the freedom and confidence they need to continue to challenge their body. This walker is ideal for people who are recovering from surgery, people rehabbing an injury, and people who have limited mobility but are still very active.
Regular walkers such as the Drive Medical Nitro Elite rollator walker aren’t recommended for use on uncultivated terrain. They simply don’t have the traction and shock absorption that’s needed for safe use. That’s where the Patrol excels.
Additionally, the walker’s unique design will also allow users to walk with correct posture, as opposed to ambulating with a hunched over posture which can exacerbate certain conditions, increasing pain.
Aside from the fact that the walker is primarily designed for outdoor use, it can also be used indoors as well. The width of the walker still allows it to easily fit through most doorways.
The handle and seat height are highly adjustable, allowing the user to get the perfect fit.
The heavily cushioned ten-inch tires are made out of a durable rubber and are slightly softer and bigger than what you’ll find on past models produced by Volaris. Each of the wheels is equipped with ball bearings, which will provide a quieter, smoother ride.
The hand grips on the Patrol feature a non-slip ergonomic rubber padding for increased comfort and safety.
Just like what you’ll find on a bike, the brakes are separate from the hand grips. The brake cables feature a hidden design and are located within the frame for a more streamlined look.
The walker consists of an X-type frame design which promotes easier, faster folding while ensuring that the walker is able to remain in an upright position when folded.
The walker’s flexible frame will keep all of the wheels stable and grounded when rolling over challenging terrain. The comfort frame works to reduce shock and the jarring effects that travel to the upper body and hands when rolling over rough terrain. The large wheels and flexible frame will also make it easy to climb curbs.
