The UPWalker Walking Aid - Upright Walker

As we get older we can potentially become a little less stable on our feet and may require the need of some form of mobility aid. These can include canes, walkers, or even rollators and they have not really changed throughout the years. What if there was a new variation of the walker/rolator that might provide a different solution to this problem? The answer might be the UPWalker Walking Aid.

What are the benefits of UPWalker Walking Aid?

Our bodies are a network of intertwined systems (skeletal, muscular, circulatory etc.) that all have an impact on each other when properly working. Each of these systems works at their maximum efficiency when we are in an upright position and walking around. Many times the use of mobility aids such as walkers or canes can lead to a hunched over position that can cause discomfort. This upright walker promotes a position that is more upright and creates a more dignified, healthy manner of walking. This standup walker can relieve pain in the wrists, backs, and leg joints of its users and is ideal for seniors, rehab patients, and those suffering from neurological, cardiovascular, and many other health maladies.
