Experience with elder w limited mobility switching from rollator to upright forearm walker?

Elderly MIL currently using a rollator, but considering switching to a forearm upright walker.  Anyone have any experience with these or advice?

I have "upright forearm" walker and would never give it up! It not only allows me to stand but allows me to feel equal to anyone I meet. Currently, not all transit systems accommodate and as it isn't ADA approved yet, not able to use public transit, BUT very good for me (and neighbor who got one)
