Choosing a walker: Decide what fits your needs

For people who have a disability that affects their walking, having a comfortable, durable and well-made walker is everything.

The walker is likely the device you depend on the most throughout the day. Not just any walker will do. While many people may think that getting the right walker is simple, we here at The Wright Stuff know that you rely on it to live your life, and it should not be dumbed down or simplified.

Only high-quality walkers

That is why we only sell walkers that we know are strong and that function efficiently for the user. Let’s take a look at the two walkers we currently offer to help you find out which one is right for you. These are not run-of-the-mill walkers, but rather advanced walkers specifically designed for functionality by medical professionals.

The latest in walker efficiency, tech

U Step II Walker

U Step II Walker

The U Step II Walker is named for its U-shaped design that securely supports the user. This Medicare-approved walker directs pressure to the base of the walker when you lean on it, providing superior balance. The flexible casters on the wheels are designed to go over thresholds and indoor rugs, as well as speed bumps and curb cuts. The five wheels of the U Step II Walker plus its two small back wheels make this walker powerful for getting over a variety of obstacles more safely.

The U Step II Walker automatically stays in brake and goes into walking mode only when you squeeze the handle. This gives you steady support to lean on and is useful for sitting and standing.

The U Step II Walker is height adjustable. It is also easily stored by lifting up on the seat and folding. When in use, this walker doesn’t stick out as much as other walkers. This fact plus its special wheel design gives it a significantly smaller training radius than other walkers.

A more economically priced walker is the Metro Portable Folding Travel Walker. This walker is extremely compact and great for the road. It measures 19 inches wide and 22 inches deep when opened, and it collapses at the flick of a finger to 6 inches by 4 inches and 32 inches long. Store it easily in the back seat with whatever else you have packed for your trip. With the Metro Walker, you can pick your own color.

Don’t settle on a walker. It’s too important. Consider which of our high-quality walkers will fit your needs and lifestyle.
