Keep on Rolling: Walkers with Seats and Baskets
These budget-friendly rolling walkers make daily chores at lot more comfortable--for a lot less. Living with a handicap doesn't mean giving up on what we most enjoy, and these four-wheel, rolling walkers with a handy seat and basket are a real boon in helping us get to our favorite activity.
I've had rheumatoid arthritis for over 40 years and time has really taken its toll on my activity level. I know I'm not alone: over 46 million of Americans alone suffer with daily pain. And don't think it's just an 'old people disease' either, as two-thirds of us are under aged 65!
Luckily, we can use rolling walkers in helping us keep up with life. I like the idea of having an all-in-one walker with a seat at the ready along with a handy basket to keep all my goodies contained when I'm out shopping.
Looking through all the available walkers with both seats and baskets among the masses of inferior models, proved daunting, so I wanted to share what I've learned with my fellow 'wheelers' and write about my findings, here.
Hopefully, I've saved you a bit of time. Let's get rolling!
Plus-Size Heavy Duty Walkers with Seat and Basket

A Few Thing to Think About with Extra-Wide Walkers
This heavy-duty walker has it all: large wheels, wide seat, big basket underneath, brakes and sturdy frame--and a 400 lb. weight capacity. But like the large walker above, if you'll be wheeling around tight spaces with narrow doors, you'll have to keep to your home's most open areas.
Budget-wise Rolling Walkers with Basket Under Seat
|4-Wheel Rolling Walker with Seat, Wire Basket Under Seat in Red|
If you're like me, your budget has more weight on your decisions than you'd care to acknowledge but I was happy to find several quality-built four-wheeled walkers sporting our favorite features: comfy seat (with padded backrest) and wire or covered baskets for shopping.
Personally, I like the wire baskets over the covered pouches. Really, the covered containers make more sense - especially during in-climate weather or sudden storms but there''s just something about tossing things in a basket that appeals to me.
|Blue Rolling Walker with Seat & Basket Under $100|
I like taking public transportation, so a basket is a must-have for me, as is the seat. Can you imagine having to stand when there's no seats left on a train or bus? Not to mention long lines at holiday time!
The padded backrests are a real plus, especially if your have the slightest tic in your spine (that would be me).
This selection is priced right, too. At under $100, they're a great deal for a sturdy rolling walker with all the bells and whistles! And did I mention free shipping?

Great 4-Wheel, Folding Walker with Seat, Basket and Backrest for Small Vehicles: In red, blue & black
I'm forever playing the Goldilocks game with "too big" "too hard" "too high." NOT fun. But this foldable-frame walker has it all for smaller vehicles and minimal storage space.
I appreciate the fun colors of this walker: red, black or blue, the lightweight frame and not having to forsake any of the goodies: shopping basket, handy seat and padded backrest.
The price is right, too at under $100 (free shipping). Love this one!
Whichever walker you choose as being the right one, will help you achieve those things that need tackling daily.
Get out there and get out there!
|Rolling Walker with Curb-Climbing Wheels/Seat/High Basket|
Curb-Climbing Walker with Large Wheels, High Basket Under Seat
I've seen rave reviews about this 4-wheel walker that's specially built for taking curbs. Too, this walker allows you to stand straighter which is a great relief to one's back.
This walker has a more compact design and looks at lot less like a walker. Most notable is its quiet, easy-roll design where you can stroll more fluidly than some other walkers. The under-seat basket is removable, which I like. For a walker that doesn't look, sound or 'act' like a walker, I'd say this Rollater is a good one!
The universal walker accessories I included here are but a scant few of what's available. I even saw a wine glass holder. Imagine that! While these walker accessories have their own hookups, you can further fit them to your walker using cable ties, if need be.
Also available, are ,esh baskets and cell phone holders, etc. My poor walker would be SO overloaded if left to my own devices!
Choose your accessories wisely but know you can change them out quite easily - just as you would a purse or jacket. You can find other walker accessories at the basket and cup holder links.
Here's an ideal rolling walker with a seat large enough to accommodate 600 pounds with its strong, heavy-duty wider frame.
It's important to make sure your new walker has the capacity for all your needs. Certainly the seat and backrest is essential, as one in every four people have damage to their hips and the ensuing pain can be unimaginable. Knee pain is also prevalent with arthritis sufferers and those with osteoarthritis and age-related joint problems.
You can find the specifics by clicking the image, here on the right. I read where users are happy with the durability, wide, comfy seat and removable backrest. The brakes get high marks, as well and some report being on their second NOVA "Mighty Mack" walker.
I imagine this roomy, rolling walker will serve you well if you're looking for a heavy-duty model with high ratings from repeat users.
You can see even more walkers and accessories at any of the image links!
What walker do you think best suits your needs? You might just give me an idea--or three!
