Walkers are vital aids for people who need mobility assistance. Though medical walkers are most commonly associated with the elderly and use in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, the fact is walkers serve a multitude of functions outside of that conception. Walkers are simply required by people of all ages. Medical walkers are used to help people stabilize themselves and who are too weak to support their own weight. From broken bones to spinal cord injuries, walkers are relied upon to aid people during their rehabilitation and physical therapy. Medical walkers also aid people who suffer from debilitating diseases such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
Though there are models that offer different optional features, all walkers have the same basic design for their intended purpose. They have four legs, form a supporting frame around the person, and they are made of lightweight metal for easy maneuverability. Most medical walkers can be adjusted to accommodate people of different heights, but before the height is fixed there are few things to consider. The height must be set so that the elbow is bent and able to pick the whole unit up in order to securely make the next step. As well, another important factor is the user’s weight. The height and weight of the patient are the differentiating issues that will determine the specific model one needs. Whatever those needs may be, however, we have the item required.
