Rollators: My husband transformed a standard rolling walker into an upright forearm rolling walker long before they became popular. Even the newer models aren't as versatile as my home-adapted version. I have low back issues and a traditional rolling walker caused me to hunch over the handles. Adapting to an upright walker was an immediate improvement both in posture and reduction in back pain. He later adapted a Walk'n'Chair for forearm support for outdoor use. I certainly wish the makers of rolling walkers would develop more devices for forearm support complete with significantly larger wheels for use outdoors. But until they do, a forearm supported upright rolling walker is a huge, huge, huge improvement over the traditional 'lean'on-your'wrists' rollator.
