OasisSpace Upright Walker Review – Brief Discussion
OasisSpace is relatively a newer company, but in a span of few years only, it has started to being counted in the top rated mobility manufacturing brands. The surprising thing is that there isn’t much information available around the company, but from what little we know, OasisSpace seems to originate from China, selling directly to the consumers via online portals.
All in all, it’s a name that you can trust, but still, it being a Chinese player, at times, a small share of products can turn out to be defective. The good thing is that you don’t need to worry about some products turning out defective as you will be bounded by the return policies of Amazon.
Weight & Folded Size
The OasisSpace Upright walker weighs around 19 pounds, which is quite average, in comparison to other walkers out there. It folds up sideways and lowers to approx 12 inches wide.
Though, the storage bag has to be eradicated for the walker to get folded. Also, it can stand while not in use, giving you the way to stop and get going whenever and wherever you feel like to.
Unfortunately, there’s one downside, and i.e., the walker tends to remain quite large even after getting folded, leading to difficulty in the entry of the unit in the trunk of the cars. If you plan to still move around and store your walker, then you would have to probably dismantle some parts, but of course, this isn’t something that you can go on doing frequently.
OasisSpace is equipped with 10-inch wheels (front) and 8-inch wheels (back) that are tough enough to handle most extreme surfaces.
These provide enough grip on different kinds of terrain, thanks to the polyurethane rubber tyres. Though we feel that the walker can still lose traction, and that’s why a far better gripper option could have been more suitable.
The OasisSpace Upright Walker is loaded with a storage bag on the front side. The bag is large enough to accommodate most of your personal belongings, covering you for your whole day’s journey.
Unfortunately, the storage space has to be removed to fold the walker and you can’t directly access the storage area while being in a standing position. You have to get towards the front side and bend down to access the bag.
The walker works flawlessly in larger spaces, but, when it comes to small indoor spaces, the situation may get a little busy due to the large wheelbase.
Though, when it comes to rolls and turns, the unit doesn’t disappoint, all thanks to the 360 degrees swivel front wheels. The OasisSpace Upright walker folds down using the side to side action and becomes quite small to fit through the narrow spaces but to even fold, you have to remove the storage bag.
The OasisSpace Upright Walker sports standard double-locking brakes, functioning in the same way that normally brakes work.
To lock the park brakes, push away the lever, whereas to slow the rollator, pull the levers towards yourself. Unfortunately, it has external brakes, posing you a risk of getting caught on objects on your way. Overall, the brakes are fine, but somewhere we feel that they could have been a little more effective and easier to apply.
It’s very unfortunate to admit but it’s the truth that the seat is a very big downside of the walker. The structure and positioning look quite awkward. You only say, how it feels to have a seat situated between the arms of the walker? Trust us, you won’t feel like using the seat anytime, until, you don’t really have any available seat options left. Not to forget that the backrest too gave more feel of throwing us backward, rather than providing comfortable support.
The OasisSpace Upright Walker features a solid body, made up out of a sturdy aluminum frame. The overall walker felt quite reliable, but when it comes to individual parts, like the seat, brakes, then that’s when you start to smell a little dose of cheapness.
It’s hard to say how long these parts will be able to survive with continuous usage. It feels as if strong attention hasn’t been given to the quality control standards.
Practical Road Experience
In indoor large environments, the walker tends to perform quite amazingly. It tends to easily go over surfaces like tiles, carpets, etc. The transitions and bumps also go in very smoothly, all thanks to the huge 10-inch wheels.
Though, when it comes to narrow hallways and tighter spaces, the walker may pose a challenge as such big equipment isn’t made for very smaller rooms.
In outdoor, smooth, and flat surfaces like hardwood floors, shopping malls, or even other areas like cobbled streets and grass are all handled with efficiency. Though, if you tend to move towards more rugged terrains, then the risk of getting stuck arises and in extreme cases, an individual may also end up tipping over.
The OasisSpace Upright Walker has its plus and downsides that you as a customer should be aware of. All in all, the walker is great at usage and should boost your self-esteem. Just remember to keep the limitations in mind and you should be good to go!
