Tall people requiring an adult walker or rollator walker with seat can have a tough time finding just the right one. There is just not that many on the market. Typical handlebar height is about 39” and one that goes up to 43.5" handlebar height.
A rollator such as the Dolomite Legacy has three size choices and also features a tall handle option. An extra tall rollator such as the Dolomite Futura, one of the tallest on the market, is designed for users 6'2" and taller. It has eight-inch sturdy wheels, is ultra-lightweight and features a convenient, flip-up seat.
Also important, don't overlook seat height. Seat heights are listed in each chair's specifications. Take care not to get a seat so low that it's impossible to get up. The standard size Dolomite Legacy has a 25" seat height, which should work for most people up to 6'4" in height.
Tips for buying a Tall Rollator
Handlebars: Users taller than 6-foot have a challenge in finding a rollator that fits properly since most manufacturers limit handlebar height to 39" maximum. The 39" height works for most people up to about 6'2" without having to bend over. One would assume the reason for the handlebar height limitation is to provide stability, anything taller might get a little tipsy unless the wheelbase increased dramatically. Dolomite offers a Tall Handle Accessory for the Dolomite Legacy Rollator for a maximum handlebar height of 40" and this may be the solution for many users.
We suggest a simple measurement: It's easy to take a quick measurement to see if the 39" - 40" handle height limitation will work for you. Measure from the ground up to just below the waistline or beltline since this is where most users are comfortable with their hands. If nothing else this will show how far the user will have to bend over, something to be avoided. See the page on Measuring for a Rollator Walker for additional information on determining correct rollator/walker height.
