The Kaye Anterior Chest Support Walkers with Forearm Supports, have been specifically designed for users with severe spasticity, athetosis, or ataxia. They allow individuals who can support weight on their legs, but lack the upper extremity strength to use a traditional anterior walker, the opportunity to stand, take steps, and move! The front wheels can swivel or lock in the forward position while the rear wheels have an external ratchet mechanism to prevent the walker from rolling backwards. The anterior chest pad adjusts in height, width, and angle for individual customization.
On the Kaye Anterior Chest Support Walkers without Forearm Supports the handgrip position adjusts front to back for comfortable, secure upper extremity positioning and support. Children who need additional support at the arms will find the adjustable forearm supports with multi-positional handgrips ideal. The walkers fold flat for storage or transport.
