The Zimma Folding Walker is a rigid aluminium walking frame that is an excellent option for those who struggle with their mobility but are able to remain in a standing position. Known also as standard walking or pulpit frames, or more commonly known as Zimmer frames, they are mostly used indoors to support independent mobility. As walking frames have more points of contact with the floor they are suited to those with greater balance problems and/or weaker legs. A walker provides more support than a walking stick, transferring more of the user's weight through the arms. This weight re-distribution from legs to arms can help reduce leg pain, in addition to supporting the entire body and promoting independence.
The Zimma Walker features rubber ferrules on the bottom of all four of the legs, which prevent the frame from slipping. Walking frames are useful because they provide a large area of support, but they do not allow the user to walk using a flowing pattern. This means that they may not be suitable for you if you get tired quickly or have difficulty starting movements. These frames are well suited to those with balance issues or who have reduced weight-bearing ability. They are excellent supports during rehabilitation, while standing, or for those that simply need to take some of the weight off of their legs.
The Zimma Folding Walker is a slimmer walker at 56cm wide. This allows the frame to fit more comfortably through narrow doorways in the home. It is also shallower than other walking aids, at 50cm, to support easier manoeuvrability around furniture. When you're choosing the right walker for you, make sure you consider the size of the frame to ensure it's narrow enough to fit through small doorways or around tight corners.
The Zimma Folding Walker has soft and comfortable PVC contoured handgrips, which enable the pressure exerted through the hands to be spread evenly over the palm. It is height adjustable and light, at 3.5kg, ensuring continued support for the legs without putting too much strain on the arms. The Zimma Walker is excellent for those who struggle with their mobility but need a walking aid that will reduce in size for easy storage and transportation.
