    med. Amer. -

    der Rollator pl.: die Rollatoren

    Examples/ definitions with source references


    Lack of balance can lead quickly to a lack of confidence, which might mean you stop getting out and about as much as you used to. Walking aids, whether a rollator, tri-walker or just a trusty walking stick, provide an invaluable helping hand for those unsteady on their feet. Rollators are the sturdiest of the bunch, with 4 rolling wheels as opposed to the 3 you will find on a tri-walker. They provide more points of contact with the ground and as such can support more weight as you walk."

    "This 2-in-1 rollator walker offers help with mobility. The rollator folds for storage or for transport and can be used to help walk or as a chair. If you are looking for a rollator walker like this, do not hesitate to place an order!"


    Just suggest removing the [Amer.] flag

    @#1 ... and your point being?

    All I am asking for is the removal of the {Amer.] flags on these two entries.
