I purchased this walker/rollator to add to my "stable" of walkers for the versitility of being able to change from a seated walker to an option as a "wheelchair", to compensate for my mobility challenges. The convertible option helps to compensate for walking stamina issues, with a little help. The Duet is very well made as are other Drive products. The item came with little assembly required and without the need for complicated instructions or tools. Great solid handbrakes! The seat is more comfortable than others that I own with its slightly wider and deeper size. Other pluses include the large "basket" compartment that folds with the walker, made from material rather than wire (helps with privacy issues for personal items being carried); push button releases for arm rests and folding mechanism and back rest piece, adding an element of security and stability. The unit converts easily from walker to rollator in seconds with a few button pushes and flip of arm rests, moving the back rest from front to back and a quick flip down of the foot rest. Again, no tools or special skills needed. I used my Duet for the first time on a lengthy walking tour of a local museum and found it to be a real asset for the day. My only negative comment is the item's weight which affects my ability to move it from sidewalk to trunk, etc. with ease. While its weight is listed at approximately 19 lbs on other sites, compared to 14 lbs for my usual walker, it seemed much more difficult for me to load by myself. Help is an asset, but not a necessity. I would definitely recommend the Duet walker/rollator to others. Well worth the purchase. I can see more freedom to do activities with my family with its use.
