Walking Frames & Zimmer Frames

Walking frames are designed for people who need more support than a cane provides, but who do not require a wheelchair.  Walkers allow you to place more weight on your arms, instead of your legs, and also assist with support and balance.

The Ultra Narrow Lightweight Walking Frame (with or without wheels) is designed to be slim enough for the very smallest of gaps, making it particularly useful in a domestic setting.

Note – When you use your walker, the height should be set so that your elbows are slightly bent.
