Roami serves as a 4-in-1 progressive mobility aid.
- Walker: Begin with the wheels up for a sturdy walker which is excellent for your patients who are just beginning recovery after surgery and those looking for reliable support. The comfortable, ergonomic handles, and polycarbonate infused, non-slip feet help ensure a durable, safe walking experience.
- Posture and Gait Alignment Aid: Roami’s patented Cam-Lock easily adjusts the angle of the walking frame to help the user keep themselves upright and centered. This makes the user feel more secure as the device better supports balance and proper posture and gait. The angle helps keep users within the walker’s frame, making it ideal for users with Parkinson’s or others who need extra posture support.
- Wheeled Walker: Use the spring-loaded foot pedal to deploy the wheels. The walker turns into a mobile wheeled walker, ready for use by those in rehabilitation who are ready to walk longer distances at a faster pace. The simple pedal makes it easy to transition between the walker and wheeled walker as needed.
- Stair Assist: When the wheels are up, Roami can also be used as a stair assist due to its level-adjusting technology. Roami can be adjusted to use on the stairs, thresholds, or curbs, restoring independence for users who need help to access their homes. The safety buttons ensure that the frame remains locked until the user intends to adjust it. Your patients will learn that it’s quick and easy to adjust Roami, so they can use it for support as they climb the stairs.
This progressive mobility aid not only adapts to the user’s needs, providing a life without limitations, but also restores dignity with a stylish, trendy mobility aid!

Why Clinicians Choose Roami for Their Patients
Physical therapist, Dr. Contreras, shares why he likes Roami:
“Finally, a mobility aid that fits the needs of a broad spectrum of individuals — from youth athletes to joint replacement patients to wounded warriors and veterans. The ability to have a walker that works on an incline, decline, and stairs will truly enable so many people to move throughout their homes and communities without the limitations experienced with a standard walker. You don’t have to leave it behind — it will traverse the terrain with you so whether at the top or bottom you will no longer need assistance to move independently.
“Roami breaks all of the negative stereotypes often associated with a walker/rollator. The numerous innovations and sleek design provide you with the ultimate mobility solution and preserves your independence with the confidence and dignity you deserve. You no longer have to avoid or limit your daily adventures due to overly challenging obstacles such as inclines, declines, and stairs. Welcome back to life without limitations.”
