The U-Step Walker with Arm Platform Attachment has the same leading-edge features of the standard U-Step 2, which accounts for the superior stability, control and maneuverability while having arm platforms in place of the standard handlebars. This is ideal for many people who have had a stroke or brain injury. It is also excellent for those who have a weak upper body or who tend to stoop over.
Reversed Braking System – The innovative braking system is easy to use and puts you in complete control. Will not roll until you lightly squeeze either hand brake. Once you release the hand brake, the unit will stop immediately. This feature is particularly helpful when standing up from a chair because the unit will not roll away from you.
Rolling Resistance Control –Unlike other rolling walkers, you can adjust the rolling speed. Many people find that wheeled walkers roll too fast for them. That is why we engineered a control for setting the rolling resistance. Loosen the set screw and rotate the adjustment lever to the desired amount of resistance, then re-tighten the set screw.
Spring-Loaded Front Wheel – The patented spring-loaded front caster system glides easily over uneven surfaces, such as indoor molding strips and cracks in the sidewalk. This avoids sudden jolts as well as the need to lift the walker over small obstacles.
Adjustable Forearm Platforms - Stand upright with your forearms cradled in our padded platforms. Ideal for individuals having a Stroke, Brain Injury, Stooped Posture, and weak upper body. Highly adjustable for optimal setup. Platforms can be rotated inwards and angled up or down.
Laser & Sound Cueing Module –This optional feature is primarily used by those with Parkinson's freezing but can be used by anyone with an irregular gait pattern. This Cueing Module can help get you started, normalize your walking and increase your stride. Press the red button on the module to project a bright red laser line on the floor to guide your step. You can also turn on the sound feature to set a beat pattern for walking speed.
