Who are Walkers suitable for?
A walker - also known as a walker or support frame - gives back a piece of independence to seniors who are restricted in their mobility. The walking aid becomes part of the daily routine and allows them to move through everyday life without having to rely on the support of relatives or caregivers. Walkers enable them to take on certain tasks independently again – such as walking to the mailbox.
Furthermore, walkers are suitable for use in exercise therapy and medical rehabilitation after accidents, long illnesses or an operation, in order to support the development of the muscles of the walking apparatus. Assisted walking makes it easier for patients to take their first steps.
In the case of these movement disorders and scenarios, walkers support:
- As a walking aid when walking unsteadily.
- For walking training during the rehabilitation phase.
- As a standing aid in case of temporary balance problems or chronic balance disorders.
- For long-term support with all coordination disorders and gait disorders that require a high degree of stability and security. The costs for walkers can be covered by the health insurance company or long-term care insurance company.
Where to use Walkers
Walkers are used in a variety of ways - for example, they are used in these environments and facilities:
- nursing homes
- old people's homes
- physiotherapy practices
- rehabilitation centers
- private household
- sports medicine facilities
The walking aids offer a wide range of options and are a solution for many people with restricted mobility to improve gait and stability - regardless of the reasons for their restricted mobility. Order walkers now at Medicalcorner24®!
How are Walkers used?
By moving the frame step by step in their walking direction, users can reliably lean on the walking aid with every step. Since the aid does not have wheels, locomotion is less fluid than with a rollator. However, walking and standing are a lot more stable. For this reason, walkers are particularly suitable for people with severely limited ability to walk or those who are still very unsteady on their feet after an operation.
Whether longer or shorter distances - support by the feet of this walking aid makes a more independent life possible, while age-related or injury-related sensitive joints are relieved.
Different Versions of Walkers
The walkers from Medicalcorner24® are available as rigid as well as collapsible or foldable constructions. Depending on the model, they can be loaded with 130 kg of weight or even more. The different sizes also allow for use by children, for example as part of exercise therapy.
Height-adjustable models allow for use by different people, which is particularly useful in rehabilitation clinics and similar institutions. Different height settings also ensure that the appropriate height setting for maintaining a good posture can be adjusted.
The following features ensure the high degree of stability:
- legs with rubber caps for extra slip resistance
- four support points between which users can find a secure stand
- durable and stable due to high quality workmanship
- individually adjustable according to body size
- support legs and connecting rods made of robust material
The foldable design enables uncomplicated transport of the walkers and offers special handiness in everyday life.
