The Right Fit:
Make sure your walker is completely open before you walk with it and ensure the walker is locked in place and the frame is rigid. It is important that you adjust your walker to a height that is high enough to hold comfortably.
- With your arms resting at your sides adjust the walker so that the handles are at the height of the wrist.
- With your hand placed on the hand-grip, your elbow should be flexed 15˚- 20˚.
- If you find that you have to stoop down or bring your arms up to reach the walker, adjust the legs to find the best height.
Walking With Your Walker:
- Place your hands equally on either side of the walker. This will distribute your weight evenly across the walker and make it safer for the walker to support you when you move.
- Push the walker and move it in front of you a distance equal to one footstep, aligning the back legs of the walker with your toes.
- Step into the frame of the walker with both feet, keeping both hands firmly on the walker’s hand grips.
