The Lite Supreme is fashionable thanks to the tan plaid carry pouch. You can carry your wallet, phone and any other items you want in the pouch. You have enough space to put light groceries in the pouch when at the grocery store, too.
You also have the option of purchasing a wire basket from Drive Medical that can attach to this unit.
When using this rollator, you’ll notice that the caster wheels are larger than normal. These wheels are a generous 7.5 inches in radius, allowing you to maneuver the rollator over grass or on pavement.
You’ll also enjoy easy maneuverability thanks to the loop lock.
The special loop lock was constructed with an internal aluminum design to provide easy and safe operation. Brakes allows you to lock the unit in place so that you can grab items off of the shelf at the grocery store, or you can lock the brakes when sitting to ensure that the unit remains in place.
Handles can be adjusted, but they’re very stiff at first.
You’ll need to jostle the handlebars initially to move them up and down. You need to maintain a handlebar height of at least 31 inches, but you can also adjust the height to 38 inches. Taller users that have to bend down to reach the handles on other units will appreciate the ability to adjust the handle height on this rollator.
When you want to be mobile, you’ll appreciate the single-handed folding option.
Weighing just 11 pounds, you can fold the rollator down and place it in the back seat of your car or in the trunk. It’s lightweight enough that most users will not have an issue packing their rollator away.
Users up to 300 pounds can use this rollator thanks to the strong aluminum design.
A lifetime limited warranty protects your investment.
Compact in size and lightweight, this rollator enables you to go to restaurants or offices without worrying that the rollator’s size will be an issue. Most, not all, users will have an easy time loading and unloading the WInnie into an automobile.
Sideways stability, as seen in four-wheel models, is not as prominent with three-wheel rollators. If you need additional sideways mobility, you may need to choose a four-wheel model for added safety. This is an issue when moving from four-to-three wheels.
And users state that the built-in pouch allows them to be more mobile. You don’t need to rely on someone else to carry your food to the table or try and walk with bags hanging off of your hand. The pouch makes it safer to walk.
- 11-pound weight makes it easy to transport when folded
- Carry pouch is fashionable and offers ample space
- Arrives primarily assembled for easy use
- Handlebars are stiff to adjust initially
The only minor issue with this three wheel walker is that the handlebars stick when you first get the unit. You’ll need to exert more force to push the handlebars down and up to adjust them properly.
After the initial adjustment, future adjustments are easier to make.
Otherwise, the Winnie Lite provides a lightweight design with sturdy aluminum that can withstand 300-pound users with ease. The three-wheel design makes turning and maneuvering the rollator a breeze.
You’ll be able to increase your mobility while getting the support you need to walk safely.
