Older adults and people with limited lower body strength struggle to move around independently.  

What is an adult walker?

A walker is a mobility aid designed for people who can still walk yet need additional support to maintain balance. It offers more support than a walking cane because they have more contact points with the ground and provide support on both sides of the body. 

HPFY offers a wide range of walkers for seniors and those with low mobility so they can independently perform their daily activities.  

When to use a walker? 

An adult walker is ideal for you when you: 

Types of walkers 

1. Standard walker 

It has four legs with rubber tips and a top rail with two foam handgrips. It is designed for support, stability, and balance. It may not be ideal for long distances and outdoor use as you have to pick them up to move. However, If you move at a slower pace or need something to support much of your weight, the standard walker is your best bet. Standard walkers are available in different models -

2. Two-wheel walker 

It is a standard walker with two front wheels. Because it is not lifted off the ground with each step, the wheeled walker facilitates a more normal walking pattern. The combination of front wheels and the back legs makes it easier to maneuver on uneven surfaces inside or outdoors. It is a great choice for those who do not require as much support but are not strong enough to use rollators

3. Hemi walker 

It is designed for people with no strength in one arm. It is lighter than a standard walker, more stable than a quad cane, and folds easily with one hand. Hemi walker is ideal for stroke recovery. 

4. Knee walker 

It is designed for those with weight-bearing issues in one leg due to injury or surgery. The knee walker has an elevated padded platform to rest the knee and provide continuous support for the injured limb. The user can walk with one leg while the other sits on a support platform.  

5. Upright walker 

It allows the user to stand upright and push the walker around rather than slumping to hold it. The upright walkers for seniors improve users’ posture, take the pressure off the wrists, back, knees, and ankle, and help users walk in a safe, secure, and supported way. 

Choosing the right walker for adults

Here are the things to keep in mind while selecting an adult walker:  

1. Height 

Choose a walker with the correct height to make proper use of it. Having a too-low or too-high walker can put you at risk of injury. Luckily, most walkers are height adjustable. 

2. Width 

Buy an adult walker that can pass through your home’s doors, hallways, and other spaces you visit regularly. It is important to take measurements before purchase. 

3. Weight Capacity  

Make sure to check the specifications section to see the weight capacity of the product. Most walkers for adults feature up to 300 lb weight capacity. Bariatric walkers are designed with extra wide sturdy aluminum frames with a weight capacity of up to 500 lbs.  

4. Foldability 

If you are an active user or need space management, you can also check out folding walkers. These will fold to fit near-bed when not in use and easily put in the trunk of cars. 

5. Seat  

A seated walker is always beneficial, especially for elders who cannot stand long. 

6. Wheels  

If the individual cannot carry the walker's weight, having wheels on the walker is the best option. 

7. Accessories 

Accessories for Walkers such as baskets, trays, hand grips, wheels, flashlights, and glide tips are available that can enhance comfort, convenience, and accessibility.  

How to walk with an adult walker  

To properly use a walker, you first need to understand how to stand in one. Make sure you note and practice the following points to ensure the proper use of a walker –

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.
