Product Details

Forearm Platforms for the Drive Medical Walking Frames

If you own a Drive Medical Walking Frame, you probably know how effective they are as mobility aids. However, if you have limited dexterity in your hands, this can make grasping the support's hand grips impossible. The Forearm Platforms have been designed to bear your weight through your forearms, which puts less pressure on your hands.

What's Included?

  • 2 x Forearm Platform

Please note that although the Forearm Platforms are pictured on a mobility aid, the aid is not included with your purchase.

Key Information

  • Handle Style: Hand Grips and Forearm Platforms
  • Handle Pattern: Plain
  • Handle Material: PVC
  • Handle Colour: Grey
  • Ideal for those who prefer to bear their weight through their forearms
  • Comfortable padded armrests help disperse weight between arms and legs
  • Has Velcro straps to wrap around forearms for added safety and security
  • Attaches easily to compatible walking frames
  • Features vertical hand grips to help you control the aid

Which Frames are Compatible with the Support?

The Forearm Supports are compatible with a range of different Drive Medical Walking Frames. This includes the following:

Comfortable Support

These Forearm Platforms' armrests have been designed with padding. This not only makes them highly comfortable, but it also helps disperse your weight between your arms and legs while you walk. Its Velcro straps also wrap around your forearms for additional safety and security.

How Do You Use this Aid?

To use the Forearm Platforms, please complete the following actions:

  1. Attach the platforms to your walking frame
  2. Undo the Velcro strap and place your forearm on the platform and your hand around the hand grip
  3. Repeat for the other arm
  4. Adjust the height, position and angle of the hand grip to suit you
  5. Refasten the Velcro strap to secure your arms in the frame, ensuring the straps aren't uncomfortably tight but still secure

How Much Height Is Added?

Once attached, each Forearm Platform will add approximately 15cm of height to your walking frame.

Forearm platforms

I recently purchased these for my my mother. They were easy to fit on a current frame she was using and made it much easier for her to use as she had a broken wrist. I would highly recommend these. You were also a great company to do business with, many thanks.
