: Because their seemed to be some interest in this walker, I thought I would report my experience using it. It took about one month to receive it and the one I have has a brake on each handle which I have to squeeze in order to use it. I am not certain, but they might customize it for your needs, because I did ask for the brakes. Overall, it performs like the company described, but their is one serious defect in the walker. When I attempted to adjust the height, I couldn't do it. So I thought it was just me and the pd causing the problem and I loaded it up and visited my neighbor to help me. It took two husky men who are good at fixing things, about 45 minutes to adjust it and they had a hard time getting it done. If you can get past that problem, it works very well and takes less effort then the old lift and walk type. It was designed to be used on a smooth surface, like in the house or on a paved surface. I tried walking with it on the lawn and it still performed fairly well. The wheels are adjustable to change the speed. It has a small basket and a padded seat to rest, In spite of the one problem, I don't regret buying it. Medicare does pay for most of the cost. Bruce
Thanks for the post on the walker. I was wondering just where the padded seat was, and what keeps it from overbalancing when you sit on it? I have heard good reports of these walkers, and I will be in the market for one, eventually.
There are buttons made for height adjustments?
These were just difficult to make work?
