Wheelchair Feature

A couple of other walkers I have reviewed can also double as a wheelchair. I really like the Medline Empower Rollator’s version. It feels extra sturdy. I love that you can use the seat as a step as well. That makes me feel even more trusting of this for safety reasons.

Comfortable

Comfort should be high on your priority list for a walker! With the Medline Empower Rollator you don’t have to worry about comfort. In fact, it has one of the best seats I have seen in walkers. The back and cushion are supportive yet soft.

It’s important that the seat isn’t too soft where you sink into it. If you sink down into it you could have trouble getting back up again. A firm yet comfortable seat is what you should look for.

Construction

The Medline Empower Rollator really has a great design to it. I think when Medline made this version, they had an excellent idea. The walker wheelchair combination is great. The safety features are wonderful. Finally, there a lot of customization options! Colors, cup holders, and other amenities are available.

Drawbacks

The only negative I can find on this one is that is heavier. It can be difficult to lift up into a vehicle if you need to transport it. If you are a weak or petite patient, I don’t think this would be a good fit.

If the Medline Empower Rollator isn’t for you, take a look at my Top 10 Walkers article. There is sure to be a walker that fits your lifestyle!

The Verdict

I love the Medline Empower Rollator for someone who is not overly weak. It’s got the wheelchair combination and sturdy design plus so much more. Medline knocked it out of the park on this one!
