U-Step Walker - Options

$1,047.40
SKU:
US-PC2-BK
Description

The U-Step 2nd Generation Walker was created to increase independence for people with Parkinson's and other neurological conditions where there is postural instability and the person needs significant support to walk independently safely.

The U-shaped base makes this model ultra-stable, with a foundation that braces you in every direction. It is not like pushing a typical walker. Instead, the U-Step 2 surrounds you and moves with you. You will feel as stable as you would feel holding onto another person's arm.

The innovative braking system is easy to use and puts you in complete control. When you lightly squeeze either brake release lever the unit will roll with you. Once you release the lever, the unit will stop immediately. This feature is particularly helpful when standing up from, or sitting into a chair because the unit will not roll away from you and will provide a firm base. 

The Optional Laser & Sound Cueing attachment:

This attachment for the U-step walker has been clinically proven to reduce freezing and falls seen in people living with Parkinson’s.

Once the red button on the module is pressed, a bright laser line is projected onto the floor which helps to normalise walking by increasing your stride and in the case of "freezing" gait often the next step can be taken when the person is prompted to step onto the laser line.  

A sound cue feature is also available with the module which provides a ‘beat’ sound pattern much like a metronome to prompt the taking of each step to help maintain walking rhythm to reach a destination. 

FEATURES:

  • Reversed braking system
  • Rolling resistance control - this can be increased or decreased according to need
  • Spring-loaded front wheels
  • Easily transported - folds flat
  • Laser sound cueing module accessory available
  • Handles street curbs with ease

Note: The Standard model does not include laser sound cueing module, you must choose this option if you need it.

For You.
