Living with osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the UK with 8.75 million people receiving treatment. Osteoarthritis mainly occurs in knees, hips, neck, back, fingers and toes. The cartilage in the joints becomes thinner, softer and crumbly. Moving reduces pain and improves mobility, a rollator can help to keep moving.
Rollator with multiple support options
Movement leads to the absorption of nutrients by the cartilage. Adequate exercise reduces pain and improves mobility. Apart from stimulating the cartilage by adequate exercise, you also train the muscles, tendons and ligaments around the joint. This provides more strength, stability and stamina. By using a rollator this will support active mobility with improved strength. you can lean on the rollator to relieve certain joints and you can sit on the rollator to rest for a while so you regain your strength.

On a rollator you can sit for a while to recover and continue walking when your strength returns. This way you stay mobile and go out easily. Because you feel safe to move.
