A walker or walking frame is a tool for disabled or elderly people who need additional support to maintain balance or stability while walking. The basic design consists of a lightweight frame that is about waist high, approximately 12 inches (30 cm) deep and slightly wider than the user.
Modern walkers are height adjustable and should be set at a height that is comfortable for the user, but will allow the user to maintain a slight bend in their arms. This bend is needed to allow for proper blood circulation through the arms as the walker is used.
Walking frames are ideal for those living with disability, are injured or for the elderly who have issues mobility. This is because they’re designed to improve the balance, stability and assist with general leg weakness.

Active Mobility’s range of walkers includes options to suit different scenarios, abilities and personal requirements.
