Walker

Secure ambulatory support aid for early mobilisation

The first step is the hardest. This old proverb suddenly seems more relevant than ever for patients facing a new challenge: to regain their ability to walk.

The Walker™ is a versatile training tool for the gym, treatment area or ward that provides the optimum conditions for taking that first step - a secure environment for patients and therapists alike. And it will continue to play an important supporting role every step of the way throughout the initial stages of the patient’s rehabilitation and ambulation training.

Gets patients moving earlier

Physiotherapists have seen positive results with the Walker in the rehabilitation and ambulation training of patients with conditions such as dementia and confusional states, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, spinal injuries, herniated discs and hip and pelvic fractures. 

The emphasis is on safety in the design of the Walker, giving patients the confidence to get the most out of each training session. It also enables physiotherapists to start a lot of patients' exercise programmes far earlier than normal. 

Depending on the patient’s condition, the Walker is suitable for both patient-led and therapist-led training. In certain cases, its risk-reducing benefits could mean a reduction in the staff resources required for safe training sessions

    In addition to walking exercises, thanks to its stability, the Walker can also be used for exercises that focus on standing, balancing and stretching, and its open sides provide the added benefit of free access to the patient’s hips, knees and ankles.

    • The handset allows the therapist to stay reassuringly close to the patient
    • Detachable Spade seat, used for lifting the patient
    • Safety straps for body weight reduction and to ensure patient safety
    • Electric or hydraulic raising and lowering, eliminates the dangers of manual handling
    • Wheel brake, for increased patient safety
    • Straight steering, to facilitate transportation in the corridor
    • Adjustable handgrips
    • U-shaped support table that the patient to lean in

    The Walker™ has a Hi-Lo function which reduces transfer injury risks, both for residents/patients and physiotherapists, when lifting and lowering them into and from the standing position. While in motion, a resident’s/patient’s sense of security is further reinforced by safety and comfort features, such as adjustable handgrips for a firm hold, a U-shaped support table for leaning onto and back/suspension straps to prevent the resident/patient from falling.

    From the moment the highly manoeuvrable Walker is wheeled up to the resident's/patient’s bedside or chair, it is helping to eliminate risks. The Hi-Lo function reduces transfer injury risks, both for residents/patients and physiotherapists, when lifting and lowering them into and from the standing position.
