Thread: Walkers... Pink/Purple Walker?

    Walkers... Pink/Purple Walker?

    Hey Everyone,

    My boss and supervisor attended PT today, so, we will be starting walking right away at work, but I need to pick out a walker.

    The one I use in PT is a four-wheeled walker with a basket and a seat. The basket I find kind of annoying and I do need a seat with quite a bit of depth.. but most importantly, I has to be pink or purple .

    Any suggestions?

    Whatever tickles your fancy. Maybe the basket will come in more handy than you think.

    I googled pink rolator. check out the hugo brand and the active brands
    I think I will choose the active brand, because of larger wheels, better on gravel or dirt.

    Considering the number of things I have attached to my chair I would think a basket could be pretty usable for carrying stuff. I think I would choose purple, even though I like pink better. Purple goes with almost anything. Pink and red...not so much. Good luck.

    Would pink trim work?
    I used one of these (with blue trim) for a year before graduating to my AeroZ. The Active Walker is a fabulous rolator. (It's almost $400USD, though, if I remember correctly.)

    You could have different colored trim for wardrobe coordination!!

    Awe! That's an awesome idea!

    I guess I should explain the no basket thing. When I go to sit on my walker, I park it against the wall, put the breaks on and the turn to sit down. I find that the basket hits the wall and makes it harder to park. Keep in mind, at this point my boss or supervisor still have to guide the walker.

    wg - are you sure that if the basket is underneath it gets in your way? I use a Lifestyle walker (not pink ) and I couldn't get by without the basket under the seat - I carry my lunch, catheters, etc in the basket and it's easy to take the basket out and load the walker in my car. A lot of the walkers now have a basket in the front or a bag under the seat and the basket in front definitely gets in the way and the bag under the seat is hard to get out to load in the car.
