Advice & Tips: It’s important to consult an occupational therapist, as they can recommend a rollator that is appropriate to your needs, usage, height, etc. They can also advise on sources of funding (such as the Assistive Devices Program, ADP, and private health insurance) and may be required to sign off on such funding.

Advice & Tips: I was using a walker in the past to help me with mobility. I was able to stop using it after I went through the LSVT Big Exercise Program and was feeling great. Then, I found out that this intense exercising, made me tear the meniscus in both my knees, and I had arthroscopic knee surgery on both knees on 11/3/10. I am doing rehab with my LSVT therapist, who wants me to use my walker again.
