Living after a CVA
A CVA, Cerebro Vascular Accident, is a stroke. After a stroke, life often looks very different. Suddenly being unable to walk or talk, which is an acute phenomenon, has a considerable impact on the quality of life. To reduce the risk of a second stroke, exercise is important. To support the rehabilitation and the movement in daily life, a rollator is a godsend.
Rehabilitation after a CVA
The damage caused by a CVA is often severe and permanent. It is therefore not surprising that the average rehabilitation period of a stroke patient is six months. During this period, the focus is on sitting, standing and walking, among other things. To support these exercises and to provide stability, a rollator is a useful walking aid. The support provided by a rollator reduces the risk of a fall, making you less anxious when doing the exercises or taking a walk.
After the rehabilitation period, a rollator may be needed for indoor or outdoor walking. This is to provide the user with support, security, or a place to sit along the way. Find out which rollators are available that meet your needs so you can keep on doing your daily activities.

Physical and mental benefits
To reduce the risk of a second CVA, but also to stay physically and mentally on your feet, exercise makes a big contribution. Exercise or sport makes for supple and strong muscles, a better breathing system and blood circulation, but it also has a positive effect on blood pressure and sugar and cholesterol levels. As well as reducing the risk of a second CVA, this also ensures a longer life and a better quality of life. All the advantages of staying in motion! Regular moderate exercise, such as walking, can greatly improve fitness.
A rollator as an aid
Before and after CVA
A rollator is a useful aid during physiotherapy exercises or during your daily walk. But walking with a rollator also reduces the chance of a fall. When dizziness or an imbalance occurs, one can immediately lean on the rollator. The rollator contributes to a stable gait and also to fewer falls. It gives the person more self-confidence.
The Rollz Flex is a rollator with a large bag, which can hold a lot of stuff. You can also sit on the seat while walking.
If you get tired during a walk, it is recommended to buy a rollator and wheelchair in one. The Rollz Motion is suitable for this purpose, this rollator is very sturdy and can be transformed into a comfortable wheelchair very quickly and easily.
The Rollz Motion Performance has the same functionalities, but also has pneumatic tyres for extra comfort.
