Walking bike instead of rollator

For people who have difficulty walking or standing for long periods of time, a City walking bike can be a relieving and helpful means of transportation because your body weight is carried by the saddle and thus joints are relieved. We often still see a rollator on the street, read here what the advantages of a walking bike are instead of a walker.


5 reasons why you should prefer a walking bike instead of a rollator

Often rollators, also named a  'rolling walker with a seat', are not or poorly adapted to the user and professional instruction is often lacking. The Van Raam City walking bike for people who can not walk or stand or wlak well, is adapted to your size and wishes, so that it fits you exactly and you can move upright and relaxed.

1. Ergonomic mobility with a walking bike instead of a rollator

Where rollators, a rolling walker with a seat, are not ergonomic in addition to the increased risk of falling, a walking bike offers a smooth-running, joint-relieving and ergonomic posture. A rollator is usually used with both hands in a bent posture. This disturbs the normal movement and walking motion. As a result, the back muscles are mainly used statically instead of dynamically, thus limiting the function of the spine for upright posture. The muscles tire more quickly and back pain sets in.

By adjusting the wheel exactly to your height, you will have a much better riding experience. Also the low entrance gives you comfort because you don't have to lift your leg up you can sit down. The seating position relieves your joints enormously and they can so with much less effort, even longer distances. In addition, the walking bike is foldable and lightweight, so you can easily take it with you in the car, bus, train or plane.
