To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great product but my rating is based on th return policy. I bought this thinking I would need it for post-surgery support. I ended up not needing it and will be charged $15 to return it. I'm upset because I thought Prime didnt charge for returns and I cant find anywhere where this info is listed. Anyone know where it's listed?
Este andador es bueno, ligero y la mayoría de sus componentes se ven de buena calidad (con excepción de algunas partes de plástico), lo compré para una persona mayor con movilidad limitada que está en proceso de recuperación, aún no puede usarlo correctamente pero yo lo probé y funciona bien, claro al aplicar el peso hacia abajo como debe ser, como todos los andadores si se aplica fuerza de manera que el componente horizontal sea mayor al vertical, tiende a resbalar, sin dudas fue buena opción de compra, actualmente no lo es tanto (lo compré hace tiempo en $799 y descuentos bancarios del buen fin, a su precio actual $999 hay mejores opciones en ese rango de precio).
I had hip surgery and for the first two weeks I had to rely on this walker. I was so happy to find out how solid it was. I have such faith in this walker that I donated it to our local hospital physio dept. so someone else can benefit from this. If I wasn’t satisfied it would have gone to a recycle depot. Very pleased
I bought this because I was going to have a total knee replacement and it was on the list of things to get. The seat for the toilet and the rearend wiper was a must. Because I had corporal tunnel surgery on both hands within 9 months of the knee surgery my hands were tender and I found that it hurt to use the walker. I had a pair of crutches so I tried them and found that they were easier than the walker. If you have a set of crutches at home I would not buy the walker in this case. You can always get the walker on Amazon within 2 days.
Mi mamá tuvo una operación en la rodilla y por lo tanto tuvimos que comprar un andador para que se pudiera apoyar al caminar y le sirvió mucho. Es de buena calidad, no se siente frágil o que se vaya a doblar ni nada por el estilo, se mantiene muy firme; además las ruedas ayudan a moverse sin mucho esfuerzo (Obviamente sólo tiene en las 2 patas delanteras y en las traseras tiene un antideslizante para evitar cualquier tipo de accidente). El armado es sencillo y al desarmarlo se dobla y no ocupa mucho espacio. Aunque no se usó demasiado, una buena compra y ya se tiene por si en el futuro se necesita de nuevo.
Aide beaucoup à la marche, et on se sent plus léger. Je marchais avec 2 cannes; une marchette n'a rien de comparable : c'est infiniment supérieur. Et ce modèle Drive vaut son pesant d'or ! Ce modèle pliable est déjà assemblé, il ne reste qu'à lui mettre-ajuster en hauteur, les 4 "pattes". Excellent achat et que je recommande. A great help for walking; and much much better than 2 canes. Thit foldable model Drive is solid and very stable : you feel safe. Already assembled, you only adjust the 4 "legs". 5 stars well deserved !
Used for about 4 weeks after a knee replacement. Only issue was I did not like the ‘pads’ on the bottom of the legs. I stopped using it outdoors as I was nervous those pads would wear so much that they would scratch our hardwood floors coming in. But did the trick for the period I needed it. A lot less expensive than renting one.
Walker arrived in large box and was easy to assemble Added the Drive Medical RTL100017 Walker Glide Ski, Gray For easy sliding on carpet instead of having to lift the walker To move forward. Takes much less force . Will update on durability
I have one of the deluxe Drive walkers with 7 inch wheels that is very good for extended walks in open areas, but is virtually useless in the close quarters of my home, so I ordered this walker from Amazon two days ago, and it arrived this morning. Fast service. It was well packaged and very light, and expanded easily when removed from the packaging and the restraining bands removed.
I had read the reviews and following the advice of other purchasers I snapped the front wheels on in a way to keep them inside the legs. A smart move, and the rear leg extensions snapped into place easily. For my height I used the fourth button hole on all four leg extensions, and that is a comfortable height for me. I found that this walker goes easily through all the doors in my home.'
The rear leg gliders do tend to drag some on carpet and outside so I have ordered a pair of the "ski" type gliders to place on the rear legs. They are sold by Amazon, and I expect to receive them soon. Judging from the pictures they should slide up over rugs without snagging them. This walker has proven to be exactly what I need, is sturdy and folds and opens easily. It comes at a great price, and I would happily recommend it to anyone who needs this kind of support. I am 90 years old and a little unsteady on my feet, and have fallen a few times. This unit gives me great support and confidence so far, and I have nothing but good things to say about it.
Edited a few days later to add that the ski gliders are exactly what I wanted. The hardest part of putting them on the rear legs was getting the original gliders out, but once that was accomplished the shi gliders went in easily and I used a Philips head screwdriver to tighten them in place with the adjustment screw on the bottom of each glider. They slide up over carpet edges perfectly. A great buy.
This is a sturdy but light walker. The more expensive model is probably more suitable for people who are much larger than me (165 lbs). It rolls easily on any surface in the house. Watch the width if you have narrow doors (our bathroom doors were 24"), so I mounted the wheels on the inside of the frame to get through these doors. This is not as stable as the normal mounting, so be warned.
