FAQ's

Frequently asked questions

Basic walkers are the most common type of walkers, and are available in heavy duty (bariatric) and pediatric styles. A basic walker has no wheels and therefore are more stable than wheeled walkers. These walkers are best used on indoors.

Wheeled walkers are appropriate for those who require a little extra support for walking. These walkers can have two-or four wheels as per the user’s requirement.

The decision of which type of walker to select requires a careful thought on the following: 

  • You should consider whether the user will be able to handle the wheels or not. Wheels and brakes need to be handled with care else it can lead to imbalances resulting in patient falls. 
  • Depending upon the users height, weight and lifting capability you must select a model that is easy to handle and suits the built of the user. 
  • The walker should be lightweight as there will be times that you need to lift or shift the walker away from uneven surfaces. 
  • You must choose a walker that is fold-able if you are a frequent traveller. 
  • Users who get tired frequently must select walkers with a seat.

Types of walkers include:

  • Seated Walker
  • Posture Control Walker
  • Folding Walker
  • Bariatric Walker
  • Dual Release Walker
  • Hemi Walker
  • Knee walker
  • Support Walker
  • Single Release walker
  • Speciality Walker
  • Two-Button Release Walker
  • Beach Walker
  • Stair Climbing Walker

For those patients who get tired very easily and frequently walker with seats are very useful. A seat is added for the user convenience. In some models the seat is foldable so as to provide proper room for users to walk.

Also popularly called 'gutter frames' feature forearm troughs or gutters that allow users to bear weight through their forearms rather than hands. Thus gutter frames are helpful if the user has arthritis in the hands or have broken your hand or wrist. The troughs and handgrips can be adjusted to find the most suitable and comfortable position. Alternatively, some walkers have a platform rather than individual gutter rests on which to rest the forearms and a vertical handgrip. High or forearm walkers may be wheeled or non-wheeled.
