Cane Or Rollator?

Cane Or Rollator?

I’ve been using a cane but am wondering if i should use a rollator because it might help me walk longer distances.

I take Fampyra (Ampyra in the US) and my right foot drops 20-30 minutes into a walk.

Any thoughts?

I vote for whatever makes you feel the most safe. If your worried at all by using a cane than move to a rollator.

I agree with what you want to do Zooma, like I said before I like using something that can carry other item in it.😊👍🌷🌹🌻

If you are asking then it's probably time to get one.
Here is the rollator / walker that I currently prefer, and I have had many different models and styles over the past eight years.

OK, Zooma, I finally got the question for me a cane worked in the beginning but what I found out was I needed to use 2 hands to stay balanced when I walk. So for the longest time I used a rollator which I loved. But when I went into the "Home" they only let me use a walker cause they felt a rollator was too unstable for me, so my Husband put it in the garbage where it sits & I use the walker. Right wrong I don't know but at least with the rollator I could carry my coffee.
