What is a wheelie walker?
A wheelie walker is a wheeled walking frame for assisted mobility support. Wheelie walkers are adaptable alternatives to walking sticks and walking frames. They can be used indoors or outside and can even be folded away or placed in the car while on the road. When exploring wheelie walker options, investigate factors such as your level of mobility, day-to-day needs and budget.
Personalised options may include 3 or 4 wheeled models, a built-in shopping basket, backrest and a seat to rest weary legs from time to time. If your balance is good, it’s worth considering a smaller, lighter three-wheeler that is less obtrusive and easy to steer in tight spaces. Mobility walker/ wheelie walker use also staves off obesity through assisted exercise and weight loss (bariatrics). Here are a few more wheelie walker considerations.
Folding / Unfolding: There is no compromise on quality with products from name brands such as Redgum. EasyCare wheelie walker walking aids are easy to fold and are specially designed for optimal balance assistance.
Hand Grips: Options include straight hand grips, padded hand grips and ergonomic hand grips that mould to the shape of your grip.
Brakes: Brakes are naturally an essential feature of a wheelie walker. Products include wheelie walkers with lever-style hand brakes similar to a bicycle, or pressure brakes for walking frames that are activated when you press down on the walker.
The Seat: EasyCare 4-wheel wheelie walkers have seats. Various materials are used, so if you can, visit the EasyCare showroom and try out our seat walker wheelie walkers for comfort and to ensure the seat is the right height.
Optional Extras: Walk your own way with optional extras that can include drink holders, trays, walking stick holders and holds for oxygen cylinders and umbrellas. While investigating the quality and deluxe products at EasyCare, take time to explore other assistance options such as bed rails, dressing aids, toilet seat raiser, shower commodes, lifters, recliners, toilet aids, shower stools, scooter accessories, bedside commode, walking frames, walking sticks and more.

You may even be eligible for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) financial support for a rollator, walking frame, lift chair, indoor walker, transfer benches, toilet seat raiser, bedside commode or other product specially designed to encourage better aged care quality of life.
How to use a wheelie walker?
If you are recovering from a leg injury or wanting to maintain leg strength and mobility, a quality wheelie walker will assist you greatly. Here are a few tips for walking with your walker.
1: Stand behind the wheelie walker and push it to a comfortable distance in front of you.
2: Ensure all the wheels are touching the ground before starting to walk to ensure falls prevention.
3: Step forward, leading with your weak leg, or whichever leg feels weaker.
4: Step forward with your other leg so it is in front of the weaker leg.
Repeat the steps to move forward. Take your wheelie walker slow and try to keep good posture.
