Height Adjustable Reciprocal Folding Walking Frame
Finding the ideal mobility aid is difficult enough, but when you have limited upper body strength, the choice of suitable walkers is even more limited. The Height Adjustable Reciprocal Folding Walking Frame features an innovative design that enables the user to simply move it along with them without the need for lifting the frame up with each step.
- Height: Adjustable from 77cm to 90cm (30 - 35.5")
- Frame Colour: Silver Frame
- Pattern: Plain Frame
- Material: Aluminium
- Handle Style: Hand Grips
- Handle Pattern: Plain Handle
- Handle Colour: Grey
- Dimensions (WxD): 55 x 45cm (21.5 x 17.5")
- Maximum Weight Capacity: 125kg (19.5 stone)
- Folds into a more compact size for ease of transportation
The walker is joined on both sides so that is can step forward with each footstep, rather than having to be picked up and placed forwards like a traditional walker. This is especially useful for patients with limited upper body strength who might find it difficult to use a regular walking frame.
The Folding Walking Frame can be adjusted in height, with a range of between 78cm and 90cm. For the individual user, this means that it can be set to a specific height that is most comfortable for their needs, thus ensuring that it is as suited to the individual as possible.
If the walking frame is utilised in such environments as care homes or hospitals, it can cater to the varying needs of a wide range of patients by allowing the height to be adjusted accordingly. This means that a suitable height can be achieved quickly should a patient in need of mobility support be admitted at short notice.
Lightweight and Easy to Clean
Anybody with reduced mobility may benefit from the lightweight nature of the anodised aluminium walking frame. It is not too heavy to lift and place back down when assisting with movement, yet remains robust for reliable and stable support while walking.
The aluminium frame is also easy to clean, and can be wiped down when required to remove any dirt or smudges. This will be useful both when used by an individual and for when thorough cleaning is required in between patient use.
Improved Safety with Rubber Feet
As the Adjustable Folding Walking Frame will be used to provide stability for users whose own mobility is reduced and require reliable support, it is paramount that the walking frame remains steady on its own feet. With the non-slip rubber tips at the end of each leg, it reduces the risk of slipping.
The Adjustable Walking Frame can be folded away with ease when it is not in use. This will be useful for when travelling, allowing it to be added to luggage or placed in a car boot without taking up too much room. It also means that it can be easily stored away, ideal for anybody who may require it on occasion.
For care homes where multiple walking frames may be held, it will enable a more spacious method of storage by allowing it to be folded neatly away into a store cupboard without taking up much room. This ensures that it can be at hand for when it is required by patients at a moment's notice.
