The KAYE Four Wheeled Posture Control Walkers are designed to make walking less energy consuming, improve postural alignment and maximize the potential for walking. Several studies have supported the clinical observations that children with cerebral palsy (CP) have improved posture and gait characteristics when they walk with posture walkers. Other publications describe improvements in alignment, cadence and stride and step length in children who have myelodysplasia, osteogenesis imperfecta, or other musculoskeletal impairments.
KAYE Posture Control Walkers place the support behind the user, which requires the person to adapt to a more upright posture and places his center of mass within the base of support of the walker. This helps the user to coordinate rhythm and timing of swing and stance phases of gait when impaired balance prevents independent walking.
KAYE Posture Control Walkers are available in five heights and two widths to accommodate users from 18 months into adulthood. The latex-free handgrips with flanged ends help align the user’s arms and hands comfortably at his sides as weight is taken on extended arms.
The KAYE Four Wheeled Posture Control Walkers have ratcheted rear wheels that do not roll backwards. The 4-wheeled walkers move forward with each step. This helps simulate a stance-swing pattern so that the person walks safely with more normal reciprocal rhythm.
