This Vive folding rollator review was done to see if this is really value for your money or its just another rollator that with no outstanding features. We also want to see how it compares to the other rollators that we have reviewed. We will be looking on the Vive’s:
- cons versus pros
- what customers had to say about this rollator.
The vive features a light weight aluminium frame which is corrosion-resistant this adds to its stability and durability. With its stabilty and suuport the Vive rollator maneuvers over any type of surface whether , grass , concrete, or tile with its large 8 inch wheels.
Weight – This rollator is abe to support or accomodate up to 300 lbs and weighs 20 lbs
Dimesions- Measures up to 31-36 inches in adjustable height and the length between the front and back wheels is 28 inches and width 25 inches. We love that the handle height is adjustable allowing for customization to suit the users needs and this can be adjusted in 1 inch increments. Seat measures 17.5 inches to 9.5 inches.
Compact Foldable Design– The Vive’s key feature is its collapsability allowing it to fit in the car trunk or the back or tucked away in a corner in your house. It folds up in 1 simple step by just pulling up on the strap under the the seat. Apart from that the Vive folding rollator allows for more compact storage if you remove the front wheels with an push button release and the back wheels are hinged so that they can fold up against the frame of the rollator. When folded it measures 10 by 20 by 32 inches.
Ergonomic Handles– The handles of the rollator are angled so that the hands are positioned in a neutral position, thereby decreasing fatigue/stress on the hands as well as easier access to the bicycle -styled brakes.
Wheel Locking Brakes- This guards against the rollator moving away when the brake is activitated.
- the rollator comes with a detachable storage tote bag so that you can carry items like your purse or wallet, medications, tools, tablet etc
- The rollator features a cane holder so that you can carry your cane if you need to navigate tight areas.
- A seat so that if your are tired you can rest.
Attractive colours – The Vive folding rollator is available in white, red and pink.
Using the Vive rollator is pretty simple use, it glides easily over most surfaces and its dual braking system adds to the comfort knowing that you are secure when using.
We love that this rollator comes pre-assembled, only requiring for the front wheels to be snapped into place before use.
We rated the Vive’s rollator walker as very good in safety secondary to is dual brake system. We loved that with the Vive you can squeeze the brake in an upward motion to halt the rollator in its tracks and pushing down on the brake to lock the wheels in place for example when sitting and this ensures the rollator does not move.
The Vive flolding rollator is backed by Vive’s lifetime guarantee on the frame and up to 5 years warranty on the brakes.
