Anterior Support Walkers were designed for children and adults who can
support their weight on their legs and take steps, but who lack
sufficient balance or upper body and shoulder control to maintain their
alignment. The walkers have a wide, stable base and may be appropriate
for users with neuromuscular impairments associated with severe
spasticity, athetosis or ataxia.
Posture Control Walkers are available in different frame designs. Our
walkers are designed to make walking more energy efficient by improving
postural alignment while the client is in the walker. Improved alignment
also helps to delay, prevent or moderate secondary musculoskeletal
impairments throughout the lifespan.
Research has shown that walking with improved alignment enhances
qualities of stepping and walking, as well as energy consumption.
Posture Control Walkers are designed to promote improved alignment and
increase functional walking mobility for users.
