Let the walker do what? Well, it would be nice if a walker could actually do laundry, but instead the walker can help you get laundry from point A to point B. A walker can also help you walk and keep your balance, help you after a surgery, or help you sit while you are waiting in line or are at an event like a concert if you don’t have a wheelchair with you. Walkers rock my socks.
I have tried several different kinds and I landed on the one I am sharing with you because I like how lightweight it is. I can fold it up and pick it up and carry it myself — there are some out there I can’t even fold up myself, let alone carry. This one weighs around 10 pounds. I also like the brakes on this model, they work well. There are four wheels instead of two, which for me is important because I can’t pick the back end up as I walk. There is a nice sized cloth basket on the bottom that is detachable. And, the back rest is padded, so it’s comfortable if you use it as a chair.
