The rollator is a great walking aid which literally supports the user. For many, the rollator is not a sign of disability but rather a godsend. This book contains a lot of useful information about the rollator and its proper use. Other names for this walking aid can be: rolling walker, wheeled walker, rollator walker or 4-wheeled walker.
This book is for everyone who already has a rollator or will inevitably need one. It is also an ideal guide for healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients requiring mobility devices such as the rollator. More importantly, this book will make a significant contribution in reducing the number of accidents resulting from the misuse of the walking aid.
President of the Board of Governors Health Insurers Netherlands, Andre Rouvoet is pleased with this initiative. He hopes that this book will be read by many and that it will contribute to the affordable care and welfare of the elderly and the disabled.
