fits like a glove
When my granddaughter first learned to ride a two-wheeler, she told me she “felt free”. I just purchased a byACRE carbon ultralight rollator from Prairie Velo+ and now I “feel free” too!
I watched my dad and my athletic, tall, straight-postured husband, both hunch over their traditional walkers. I noticed other folks doing the same. I temporarily had to use a traditional walker a few years ago and had to push it ahead of me so I wouldn’t hit my shins. This caused me to hunch over just like everyone else. My back ached from the unnatural posture. I was determined to find a better walker, one that was designed to help me walk properly. I found it! The byACRE Carbon Ultralight rollator. I read everything I could find and watched YouTube videos all saying how great this award-winning, Danish-designed rollator is. It sounded amazing. I even had a video conference with the wonderful people at Prairie Velo+ in Winnipeg (the Canadian vendor of byACRE rollators). Even though I had all this information about the rollator, I didn’t really “get it” until my rollator showed up at my door. Perfect posture was my number one concern and requirement. I don’t know how they designed these rollators so that I stand straight but they did it. They say it is the forward-facing, ergonomic design of the handles. I thought the canvas seat might not be as comfortable as conventional seats. Let me tell you, it is like sitting in a hammock. It is so comfortable! They say the lightweight rollator is easy to lift. That’s true, it is the lightest in the world. It is also so easy to push! Every little detail has been engineered to perfection. For example, traditional walkers have bolts sticking out beyond the wheels. They scratch everything they touch: doorways, walls, furniture. The wheels on the byACRE rollator, which turn so easily, have an ever so slightly concave shape so they cannot scratch anything! It is so simple. I can’t believe no one thought of it before. In the last three years, I probably haven’t walked more than a very few minutes around the house. I was afraid to go out by myself. This is my third day with my byACRE rollator and I have walked about an hour and a half each day. Today, without even thinking, I went outside and walked because I wanted to. I feel so much better now that I am moving more. I could go on and on about this rollator and why it is the best. But I know you won’t really understand it until you try it for yourself. So go ahead, try one on! ———————————— Anne's testimonial was first published in February 2022. Since receiving her byACRE rollator, Anne is proud to say that she walks an hour almost every day and has lost 25 lbs along the way. The most important thing, she says, is how much better she feels!
