Posterior Posture Control Walkers place the support behind the user, requiring the person to adapt to a more upright posture while placing his/her center of mass within the base of support of the walker. Posterior walkers are available with many wheel configurations and numerous optional accessories.
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.
