This device is the greatest benefit for my mom I found anywhere! It has given her the confidence and mobility she needed to get her back into activities she was hesitating to continue. The design is perfect - easy for all of us and most comfortable for her - the hand grips and the back support when seated are the best!1/9/2013 7:28 AMWas this review helpful? Yes / No (0/0)
The people that designed this rollator did an awesome job; it's very innovative. Materials, quality, and workmanship are excellent! We are in our 50's and I think it will last for several years to come.1/9/2013 7:28 AM
I had to loosen the brake cables before we could use it - a bit over-tightened at the factory. That was a hassle.
I purchased the Navigator as a "plan B" for my wife when we have a lot of walking to do. She prefers to walk as long as possible, and we have not yet used it as a wheelchair, but it sits fine to me.
My wife's primary rollator is small (and cheap), but it is light-weight (14 lbs.), and she can handle it OK when she's alone. Not so with the Navigator; it weighs about 24 lbs and I do all the handling getting it in/out of the car. This gets hard for me when we're making quick trips to different places (but I guess that would be true with any wheelchair).Was this review helpful? Yes / No (1/0)
I purchased this item on April 23, 2009, and have found it to be the best purchase I ever made. I am 85 and very disabled as a result of severe neuropathy, degenerative disc disease, and an ankle that is permanently crippled by posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. In other words, I'm a physical mess and getting worse. However, this wonderful rollator/wheelchair has helped keep the doors of the world open to me and has seen me through two major trips to Europe, a cruise to New England, and just this fall a cruise to Canada. It is amazingly sturdy and very reliable. I no longer can stand alone or take a step alone anymore and I am increasingly using my Navigator as a wheel chair when I travel, with the assistance of my son or my daughter. It's gone over many sites in Baltic countries, over rough roads in small villages, and around the decks of cruise ships. The recent trip was on Queen Mary 2, and even though I was not able to get a "disabled" stateroom, I was able to get the Navigator through the doorway of a "regular" room by just folding in one of the wheels. It folds and is allowed onboard flights with me, where it's stored in a closet. The Navigator has served me well and I highly recommend it.10/11/2013 2:51 PMWas this review helpful? Yes / No (1/0)
