It’s one of the simplest forms of exercise and yet it offers so much. We have done a bit of research and found out some interesting facts. For instance, not only does walking have a physical impact on your body it can also have a mental impact of people. It helps reduce depression and stress levels and improves your confidence and self-esteem. It also helps to reduce some pain in conditions such as chronic arthritis. Further to this, it lowers your blood sugar level. Last but not least it helps to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and even coronary heart disease.
To help a wider range of people experience the benefits of walking, we have introduced a new and innovative product called the Wheellator. This is a cross between a wheelchair and a rollator and is intended for extended duration walking. People who suffer from COPD conditions or who are going through some sort of rehabilitation may struggle to get the needed amount of walking in each day to maintain a healthy body and a healthy mind. They may lack the confidence to go out with a standard rollator. When this happens people stop doing the things they once loved like going for walks in the country or going to the shopping mall or going for a stroll on the beach. With the Wheellator this is now possible again. If you feel a little tired you can sit down, self propel using the big wheels or have somebody push you until you feel strong enough to walk a bit further. It is not intended to be used as a wheelchair over long periods of time, just when you need a breather.
