Why is it easier to maneuver with the U-Step?
wheels allow you to swivel and manage uneven surfaces with more stability than
standard walkers can offer. The U-shaped base promotes better posture by
reducing the tendency to lean forward when walking.
If the U-Step rolls so easily, might it roll away
features prevent that from happening. The hand brakes are configured as
“pull-to-go”, in contrast to typical hand brakes. Also, a set of
variable-resistance pads regulate the two large wheels on the base, according
to the needs of the particular patient.
Is the U-Step only intended for Parkinson’s patients?
U-Step offers more stability for anyone who requires a walker. Those with
conditions such as Parkinson’s, MS, stroke, Ataxia or PSP often find that the
U-Step is the only walker that provides maximum mobility for them.
Do I need the LaserLight option? How does it help?
LaserLight addresses a particular symptom: freezing gait, a condition often
associated with Parkinson’s patients that inhibits leg movement due to
neurological rather than muscular factors. The laser projects a bright line on
the floor; this visual cue provides a stimulus that overcomes
neurological-based freezing in most cases.
