Tall & Extra Tall Rollator Walkers with high Seats
Tall people looking for a tall 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. The
Lumex Walkabout Allura LX fits users 6'2 - 6'8".
Don't overlook seat height. Seat heights are listed in each product's specifications. Take care not to get a seat so low that it's impossible to get up.
Tips for buying a Tall Rollator
Handlebars: Customers 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. 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.
