An upright walker is a 4-wheeled rolling walker with forearm supports and grips that allows users to walk in a proper, upright posture with better balance verses the hunched posture that occurs from using a standard Rolling Walker [Rollator]. Upright walkers are lightweight and fold easily for transporting or storage. Many optional accessories are available. Whether young adult or seasoned senior, the upright walker provides greater comfort, confidence and independence than with a traditional Rolling Walker [Rollator].
