*What’s Wrong with Conventional Walkers? *
Conventional walkers have been a vital aid for many, but they come with their fair share of challenges. Let’s explore some common issues and discover how innovation is paving the way for a safer, more user-friendly solution.
- Lifting & Awkward Movement: Traditional walkers often require users to lift and move the device forward as they walk, which can be cumbersome and unnatural. This can be especially challenging for those who are unstable or lack the strength to lift the walker.
- Instability: Some walkers with wheels offer a more natural gait, but they may compromise stability, making users feel wobbly.
- Rolling Away on Inclines: Wheeled walkers can be unpredictable on inclines, potentially rolling away from the user. This not only poses safety risks but also renders the walker less useful.
- Hand Brake Dilemma: Many wheeled walkers come equipped with hand brakes resembling bicycle brakes. While they provide control, users with arthritis or debilitating conditions may struggle to operate them effectively.
Here at iWalkSafe, we believe in pushing boundaries to create safer and more accessible mobility solutions. Our innovative approach to walkers addresses these challenges, providing stability, ease of use, and improved safety.
