hey guys welcome to caregiving
one-on-ones product review today I’ve
got Dan Keating from Drive medical with
us and we are going to be talking about
role leaders which are the next step up
from canes and walkers is that right
correct correct
at okay so the thing I’ve noticed with
row leaders is there’s all kinds of
models out there alright and my mom
again lives in Abilene Texas I’m a
thousand miles away from her and if I
want to order her one how do i size the
right one right so you’re right there’s
a variety of options and selecting the
right one for three months very
important so the first thing we look at
is the weight capacity so each spec
should be published it will give you
what the weight capacity is based on
your mom’s weight make sure that fits
which needs the second thing to look at
is going to be your your handle height
needed okay and your seat the floor
height needed all right
so depending on you know for a basic
guide for height measurement for the
handles if you know her height in inches
you can divide that by two and it’s
going to find roughly what the handle
height needs to be so she’s five six at
sixty six inches so 33 inches right and
it’s going to be arranged because the
height of the handles is always
adjustable okay on the seat to floor
height we have junior models we have
adjustable height models is all variety
so you really want to find out with her
feet touching the ground and your cheese
if you’re sitting in a regular seat if
you get the measurement from the back of
the need of the floor it will give you a
good range of what she needs to be a so
we want her feet to touch them we want
her feet for stability purposes correct
okay very good
all right now once we’ve done that how
do we how do we figure out which model
are they clearly there’s differences
between all kinds of models whether it’s
a Cadillac version or a Chevy version
yep what tell me tell me about this a
few couple basic things to look at
beyond style is going to be that you
need three wheels of four wheels based
on a home environment so how are you
going to be using it why would you need
three wheels versus a thinner Hall or
right so it’s always yes the three is
going to be more narrow so it gives you
a give you a smaller footprint gotcha
so when you when you’re when you’re the
idea of these mobility devices to help
with their daily activities of going to
the bathroom and changing and stuff like
that so it needs to fit within the
doorways in the hallways all right the
second thing to look for is the wheel
size so you can see these two have
different style wheels you know six
eight inch up to ten inch and so if you
have someone that’s going to be in an
environment that’s more outdoors they’re
going to be using it on different levels
of terrain the bigger the wheel the more
ease of transition over the surfaces are
altering vehicle correct correct a ten
inch wheel it gives you it gives you
better traction on a higher plush carpet
indoors again the bigger wheel is going
to move over better on that a third
thing to look at is going to be the seat
okay so there’s padded there’s hard
plastic we always suggest a more durable
padded comfortable seat is going to be
better for your loved one versus a hard
plastic that’s not comfortable for
anybody so brakes somebody can sit and
just take a take a break that rest yeah
so the beauty of the the rollator
is really for those patients that are
more active those loved ones that are
more active and if you are taking mom
shopping and mom needs a break and she
just needs to sit down because she’s
fatigued you can engage the brakes has
an adjustable backrest here yeah and she
can sit down and take as much time as
she needs and then when she’s ready to
go again make her mobile by releasing
the brakes
but but engaging the brakes is key so it
doesn’t move away and that’s why it’s
important for the seat to floor height
to be measured so that her feet are
touching the ground all right now one
important thing my mother took care of
my father at what Parkinson’s and she
was the one lifting the roller the role
later in the car in and out all the time
look at dad all the time what’s the
easiest model to help yeah so another
thing you know weight capacity is
important to fit the patient weight but
as the caregiver with you you with the
one transporting the product you want to
find out what the weight of the actual
product is so you can lift it so with
this standard role later again it folds
up through the basket here you’re going
to see it’s a little bit more cumbersome
so we have the Lexus models that with
the quick pull single release weight
it’s going to be a little bit lighter so
I always say look at the specs to make
sure that you know the weight of the
product you’re buying because you need
to make sure it’s going to be able to be
supported by by by you as you transport
your loved one sanic alright Dan thank
you very much thank you Scott guys if
