Pediatric walkers are generally height adjustable and can be either pulled from behind or pushed in from depending on their style and the child’s abilities. They can have no wheels, two wheels or four wheels. The more wheels on a walker the less stable it is however the more wheels the easier it will be to move. Some types of walker wheels will swivel which eases turning but reduces the stability of the walker. The rear wheels, when four wheels are used, in some cases can have drag brakes which slow the rotation of the rear wheels to make the walker more controllable and stable for the child.

Children’s walkers can also have forearm attachments (as pictured) which allow the child’s weight to be transmitted down through the elbows and forearms to the walker. These attachments are helpful for kids who cannot grip the walker with their hands or support their weight through their hands.

Today, such a walker would mark my mother as a nerd, a penny-pincher or, worse yet, someone whose neglectful children had failed to provide her with the next new thing. Spend some time at an assisted living community these days and it’s clear that the Cadillac of walkers — will our generation call them the BMWs of walkers? — is no longer a jury-rigged contraption of found objects, but rather a “rollator,” a “rolling walker” or a “walker with a seat.

A two wheel rolling walker is defined as a walking aid with two front wheels and no rear wheels. These walkers are geared toward users who have more limited mobility and can walk slowly. We recommend adding gliders or tennis balls to the rear posts so that the user does not have to lift the walker at every step. The gliders also add some friction to the walker when walking and will stop the walker from rolling away.
