5 Best Rollators / Walkers for Tall People 2020

It’s bad enough that a situation might make you require using a rolling walker to support your movement.

Sometimes, it’s for the best.But you definitely shouldn’t add salt to the injury by using an undersized mobility walker.

Given the fact that you’re taller than average, your preferred rollator walker should also be sturdy enough to hold up to your weight.

Getting anything less can prove to be a disappointment in the long run.

The best rollator walkers for tall persons would have ample height adjustment, a hulking weight limit, and useful extra features.

But that can be relative as price is a factor.

Regardless, I compiled a comprehensive and encompassing list of the best rollator walkers for tall seniors on the market.

So don’t fret, you’ll find one that suits your taste and budget.

 


 

5. Graham-Field Lumex Allura LX Boriatric Walker

Lumex designed the Allura LX specially for tall guys. It has an array of handy accessories that also give it an elegant outlook.

Key Features

  • Weighs 19lbs
  • User weight limit: 300lbs
  • Goes as high as 42”
  • 8” rolling tires
  • Accessories: cane holder, removable storage bag

What I Like About This Walker

This is really one classy looking rollator walker. If you’re the “suit and tie” kind of person, you’ll like it right off the bat. The plain storage pouch accentuates other parts and accessories of the walker in style.

Also, it works for a person as tall as 6’8″, which is great.

But you may need to tread carefully if you’re on the heavy side of the scale because it still has the average 300-pound weight limit.

Needless to say, it has a sturdy frame that would hold up well over time under good use.

What I Don’t Like About This Walker

I don’t like how they portray it as having a “lightweight aluminium” frame. There are many other rollators that weigh much less and aren’t marketed heavily as lightweight.

On another hand, the seat is made of fabric with no cushion. Some screws on the sides may also cause discomfort for a larger-sized person.

Pros

  • Good deal
  • Sleek paint job
  • Classic look
  • Highly adjustable for up to 6’8 guys

Cons

  • Uncomfortable fabric seat

Rating

  • Weight: 2.5/5
  • Support: 3/5
  • Adjustment: 4/5
  • Comfort: 3/5
  • Aesthetics: 5/5

 

4. Dolomite Futura Rollator Walker – Highest Handle Adjustment for Tall Guys

The Dolomite Futura rollator walker has a simple and minimalistic design that actually contrasts its name. That aside, it’s easily the only rollator walker that can reach over a 42-inch handle setting.

If you’re under 6’2″ (1.88 m), this walker is out of your range.

Key Features

  • Weighs 18lbs
  • User weight limit: 330lbs
  • Handle raises as high as 43.5”
  • 8” indoor & outdoor wheels
  • Accessories: cane holder, removable basket

What I Like About This Walker

This rollator is probably a savior to towering guys that still have issues with other tall walkers. It’s hard not to find a comfortable height setting even for a 7ft tall giant.

Unlike other tall rollator walkers, it’s capably built to support its 330lbs weight limit. Maybe even a little more, but that would be unnecessary and risky.

At a glance, it’s clear the Futura is built to last with its old-school style construction. Sure enough, the walker is made from tougher quality steel than the average rollators.

What I Don’t Like About This Walker

I understand beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder but Futura is just not it for me.

The basket behind the seat makes it look like a shopping cart. While this is personal, the visible brake wires are somewhat a general flaw – makes it look too much like a machine.

And, the price of the Futura puts it in the luxury category of walkers. But definitely worth it since you won’t find as many personalizable walkers for tall guys.

Pros

  • Unending handle adjustment setting for towering guys 6’6″ and above
  • Simple and minimalistic look suits reserved guys and seniors
  • Built to last

Cons

  • Expensive walker

Rating

  • Weight: 4/5
  • Support: 4/5
  • Adjustment: 5/5
  • Comfort: 3/5
  • Aesthetics: 2.5/5

3. Comodita Prima Heavy-Duty Rollator Walker – Best for Heavy Weight Support

This is a designated rollator for stocky or large persons weighing up to 400 pounds. While built sturdily, it can also hold a 6″4 tall user comfortably without hunching over.

Key Features

  • Weighs 19.5lbs
  • User weight limit: 400lbs
  • Supports up to 6’4″ guys
  • 8” indoor & outdoor wheels
  • Accessories: cane holder and cup holder

What I Like About This Walker

First, I should reiterate it’s a thickset rollator walker that effortlessly supports large-sized individuals. The quality of its construction alone boosts confidence on the seat. Speaking of which, it also has a wide and well-cushioned.

What I Don’t Like About This Walker

No doubt, this rollator has a sturdy, and secure frame that feels safe. But some folks have complained about a sliver of chance that its tires may slide even when the brakes are locked.

However, you only need to get the right height setting to keep it balanced with your hands.

Pros

  • High-end walker
  • Good value
  • Thickset steel frame
  • Spacious storage accessory
  • Wide and comfy seat

Cons

  • Somewhat heavy

Rating

  • Weight: 3/5
  • Support: 5/5
  • Adjustment: 3.5/5
  • Comfort: 4/5
  • Aesthetics: 3/5

2. Medline Empower Rollator Walker – Budget Option

Currently, this is the cheapest rollator walker for tall people that I’ve come across. And it owes this partly to the huge price discount ongoing.

Key Features 

  • Weighs 17lbs
  • User weight limit: 300lbs 
  • Supports up to 6’4″ guys
  • 8” indoor & outdoor wheels 
  • Accessories: reflective tape, cup holder, and tote bag

What I Like About This Walker

Aside from the sweet deal you can get on this walker, it’s versatility is something to applaud. It can fit a person as tall as 6’4″ but also as short as 4’11”.

So you can pass it on to someone shorter, and they’d still find it valuable. This saves money that could have also been used to buy a “small-version” walker.

The brightly colored parts are the adjustment knobs and brake point. This is great for seniors to easily spot and use.

What I Don’t Like About This Walker

Quite a number of folks have said it’s heavy, but it’s relative to their health and size.

For a tall person who’s still mildly active, it’s definitely lightweight. There are heavier walkers in this review that are considered light.

Pros

  • Good bang for the buck
  • Lightweight
  • Comfortable seating area
  • Can also be used by short folks

Cons

  • Some quality control issues

Rating

  • Weight: 5/5
  • Support: 3.5/5
  • Durability: 3/5
  • Comfort: 4/5
  • Adjustment: 3/5

1. Volaris Smart Patrol Fitness Rollator Walker – Overall Best Rollator Walker for Tall Guys

This Volaris Smart Patrol is the more futuristic looking walker. It’s sporty and trendy design is not only appealing but also highly functional.

Key Features

  • Weighs 16lbs
  • User weight limit: 330lbs
  • Supports up to 6’4″ guys
  • 8” indoor & outdoor wheels
  • Accessories: cane holder and cup holder

What I Like About This Walker

The Volaris walker is one of the few, if not only ergonomic walkers on the market. It has a unique design that creates vital space to stand upright inside the walker.

Unlike other walkers, you may be slightly hunched over due to the back tires usually taking up legroom.

It’s ultra-light, so it can move around easily. Despite this, it has a higher weight limit than heavier walkers because it’s built with quality materials.

What I Don’t Like About This Walker

As if expected, the innovative design that supports upright standing reduced the quality of the seat.

The plastic seat isn’t comfortable. Why? Well, because it’s plastic. So you may need to have a throw pillow handy if you plan to seat on the walker for long periods.

And finally, you’ll have to buy most accessories, such as storage for said pillow.

Pros

  • Ergonomic design encourages upright posture
  • Very lightweight
  • Flexible for walk in narrow spaces
  • Futuristic look

Cons

  • Pricy
  • Has a plastic seat

Rating

  • Weight: 5/5
  • Support: 5/5
  • Durability: 5/5
  • Comfort: 3/5
  • Adjustment: 4.5/5
