The Drive Hospital Walker is a rigid, aluminium walking frame with 4 sturdy legs. These frames are also known as Zimmer frames, standard walking or pulpit frames, and are mainly used indoors to enhance independent mobility. As walking frames have more points of contact with the floor they are suited to those with weaker legs and/or greater balance problems. Walkers offer more support than walking sticks, redistributing weight from the legs to the arms to reduce leg pain and support the entire body.
The Drive Hospital 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 as a support during rehabilitation, while standing or for those that simply require reduced pressure on their legs.
The Drive Hospital Walker is wider than the Domestic Walker at 66cm wide. This allows more support and a wider frame for a larger body. It is also deeper than the Domestic Walker, at 58cm, to provider greater support and stability, while still being manoeuvrable. When choosing a walker, make sure you consider the size of the frame base to ensure it is not too wide to go through small doorways or around tight corners.
The Drive Hospital Walker has push button height adjustable legs that range from 77cm to 84cm so you can find the appropriate height to support your every step. Soft and comfortable PVC contoured handgrips spread pressure evenly over the palm. It is also light, at just 3kg, ensuring continued support for the legs without putting too much strain on the arms.
