How do I determine the right grip height of my Rollator?


You can determine the correct rollator grip height by doing as follows (as recommended by physiotherapists);

  1. Stand upright next to your Veloped, with your back as straight as possible, with your shoes on and with your arms hanging in a relaxed state along your body (elbow slightly bent).
  2. The grips should be set at the same height as your wrist bone.

With the grips at wrist height;

  1. You do not have to raise your shoulders, and you can unload a greater part of your body weight.
  2. You can walk closer to the hand grips, which results in a more upright body posture.
  3. The weight you put on the grips is distributed vertically/downwards = better weight distribution = good stability = better brake performance when walking downhill on lose ground (the tires do not slide when braking).
