right this instruction is on Walker’s
walkers are probably the most common
piece of DME equipment there is walkers
are a platform that’s designed to aid in
mobility that provides full body support
full body meaning full body weight there
are three basic versions we have a
single button Walker single button means
that a single point of contact will
collapse both arms a two-button Walker
meaning that there are two separate
controls you can collapse one the other
one still Statham still stays rigid
offers more flexibility and then we have
a paddle Walker paddle Walker’s little
higher end it is basically a two button
that if you look at the sides as a
paddle and what you can do is while
you’re using your your hands that are in
the grip you can simply reach down with
an index finger and collapse one side
again because it’s two buttons it offers
a certain amount of flexibility as far
as seating positioning yourself onto a
couch a cushion of bed where a single
button wouldn’t necessarily offer for
the purpose of setup we’re going to
stick with the to button it is a by far
the most common as well height
adjustability is the crucial issue with
the walkers if the Walker is not set
right it’s going to cause the patient to
slouch or it’s going to put them in an
upright position that’s uncomfortable so
what we need to do is get a measurement
from the ground to the crease of the
wrist okay Brown crease of the wrist
it’s a very very common theme with the
DMV equipment by the
the grind of the crease of the rest but
in this case that measurement sets those
handles at approximately that matter
that crease the result is when you pick
your hands up put them on the handles is
that you’ve got that natural 10 12
degree bend in it plus the Flex the
angle at the wrist isn’t exaggerated
there’s no undue stress very very
comfortable now whether it’s a 1 the 2
button or the paddle they all adjust in
height the same way and that is when
they come out of the box they’ll be
folded and you’ll see these legs
attached in the center so you’re
literally when you put simple as in
you’re going at put these legs on it’s a
very very simple task the leg comes out
when you look at the leg you’ll notice
there are a series of holes these are
the height adjustment holes are
approximately one inch apart you simply
slide the leg over the top of the Walker
bring it down so that that sprint button
that’s on the support leg one two three
four bratz color button so that support
button or that locking spring button
locks these legs into place when we
adjust it just push the button in raise
it or lower it and the result is is that
we want to have a walker that is both
level and steady level in this case
doesn’t necessarily mean plum because
the design of the Walker is situated so
that it does actually lean back slightly
this is so that it in design so that it
discourages any sort of forward leaning
forward leaning can result in tipping
over
which is why we don’t like this when we
have them sized properly again the
handles are going to be approximately
the crease of the wrist so when you put
their hands on here on the handles that
it gives them a nice comfortable
platform to walk now there are a broad
spectrum of accessories wheels wheels
only go on the front never on the back
the reason is is that if you have a
wheel on the front and the back there’s
no braking system in the back it’s not
going to be a matter of if it’s going to
be a matter of when that somebody takes
a spill best-case scenario they stumble
and they catch themselves but because
there’s wheels all the way around the
odds are that the role they are the
Walker is going to go flying away
they’re going to land on their knees
possibly face into a steel support
bracket if they do the water goes flying
and then they face plant very very bad
scenario never ever ever ever allow
somebody to put a standard wheel on the
back of a walker if they need to have
wheels all the way around there’s a roll
later we’ll cover that in a separate
segment but never ever ever allow wheels
to go on front and back there is one
exception and that’s actually a wheeled
break the wheel is a three inch wheel
but it’s built on a spring system so
that as soon as any weight is applied to
the handles it pushes down and the
rubber stopper is what comes in contact
with the ground not the wheel the only
advantage to it is is if you’ve got
somebody has wheels up front they put
the wheel glide breaks in the back it
allows them to scoot around very very
easily but until they put weight on it
let’s or as soon as they put weight on
it then it locks into place and breaks
some people who are still a fairly
mobile but need a steadying affect
people like that have a tendency to use
the wheel guy breaks but as a rule
people will have a set of wheels up
front and you can see there’s all kinds
of options like that you’ll see some
people use tennis balls tennis balls the
reason people like it first off they’re
inexpensive secondly is that they have
the perception that they glide very very
quickly across surfaces unfortunately
that’s not the case gly are tennis balls
even though they are readily available
at very very common as a rule you have
to plug the hole at them cut the hole
big enough so that it will actually fit
on the leg plus if you take it outside
the hairs pick up dirty water they pick
up all the dirt they pick up stones and
they’re the biggest culprit for someone
who gets a walker and they bring it in
to say like a hardwood floor scratching
the floors we try to discourage the
tennis balls only because of that fact
now with that being said the Walker
platform has other options like a
platform like a trade a basket and those
are all very very self-explanatory a
basket sits up front it allows you to
put things in it when you have somebody
who wants a basket I encourage you to
take the legs and make them one not
shorter then they are when you know if
you don’t have a basket and the reason
that is is that it kicks the Walker back
slightly to compensate for a basket and
the weight that could be put on again
this whole issue of a tilt forward as a
bad thing a tilt backwards slightly is
not necessarily a bad thing along the
same lines we have trays Walker tray is
a device and lots of companies make them
that either fit into this area and
provide a platform to set down a drink
hold a book maybe a plate but they’re
not designed for let’s say a cafeteria
tray they’re designed for you to
something down and and possibly
something light while you’re moving but
they’re really not designed for
transportation of food of you know
you’ve got a hot cup of coffee set there
they’re really not designed for that
they’re merely a platform that set
something light there are platforms then
a platform attachment is a device that
when you attach it to the Walker allows
somebody who’s hey let’s say they’ve had
a stroke and their right side is weak
but their left side is normal what they
do is this platform attached it mounts
and it acts as a forearm tray it has a
grip that comes up and they can grab but
the idea is is that it’s straps to the
forearm and they would lift the walker
with their forearm on one side of the
hand on the other that’s the walkers
again there’s a single button to button
a paddle and by the way wait capacities
are across the spectrum as well Walker’s
go from 250 pounds up to 850 pounds so
whether it’s pediatric geriatric or
bariatric the walkers the family of
walkers accomplish all of this
height-adjustable done by push buttons
on the legs the leg slides up and down
push button stays fixed measurements
from the ground to the crease of the
wrist gives you a positive starting
point for measurements and again those
measurements are taken from the person
in their normal position or their normal
posture not necessarily into a forced
upright posture if you have any
questions please feel free to call the
cut or contact the product support desk
and thank you
