A walker or walking frame is a tool used by elderly people and those 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 (30cm) 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 them to maintain a slight bend in their arms. This bend is required for proper blood circulation through the arms as the user walks with the frame.
Walking frames (otherwise known as zimmer frames) enhance the user’s safety and independence, preventing them from falling over and allowing them to be mobile without the assistance of a carer. With this in mind, we stock an extensive range of walking frames to suit all abilities and personal requirements.

Walking frames come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and designs, covering all abilities and requirements. For example, we stock a number of walking frames with wheels for easy mobility and manoeuvrability. For standard users, we have the Folding Walking Frame with Wheels from Care Quip. Adjustable and lightweight, this frame is made from aluminium for easy folding and lifting.
For bariatric patients, we have heavy-duty walking frames with wheels made from double-chromed steel. With a wider frame and extra durability, our walking frames are perfect for bariatric patients.
Both walking frames have sturdy brakes so you can control your walking speed and turn the brakes on if you need to stand still without the risk of falling. Alternatively, we also have walking frames with rubber tips to prevent slips and falls.
