The UPWalker Neuro
follows from the
original UPWalker but
adds functions and
benefits for neurological and movement
disorder patients. The UPWalker Neuro
features armrest angle adjustments for
hemipelagic and other patients with lmited
arm movement or muscle tone (angle can
be set anywhere between straight ahead
and perpendicular across the body). A
backup prevention mechanism on both
rear wheels reduces the risk of retropulsion
and a speed control resistance brake
manages the pace with which the UPWalker
rolls. Other features include an armrest
bridge that provides enhanced stability
for impaired patients, and a rechargeable
motion-activated safety light that illuminates
the user’s path.
The UPWalker Lite Upright Walker is a lighter and smaller model of the company’s UPWalker, and is especially well-suited for indoor and outdoor use. This new take on a familiar mobility format helps users walk upright in a safer, more secure posture as compared to traditional walkers and rollators that cause users to hunch over. Compared to the original UPWalker, the UPWalker Lite walking aid is easier to maneuver in tighter spaces, easier to lift and transport better and suited for smaller, frailer users. The UPWalker Lite and the original UPWalker are the only upright walkers to be ISO certified for safe, indoor and outdoor use. While 34 percent lighter, the device has a 300 lbs. weight capacity and a safe, patent pending design for low tip-over risk. The lightweight mobility solution folds easily for easy transporting and ensures less pain and more walking comfort.
For nearly 40 years, the design of walkers for seniors and people with limited mobility has remained the same. LifeWalker has changed that with their new UPWalker, which enables users to walk safely in an upright position instead of the usual slouched position. The walker features four 8 in. rubber wheels, adjustable height armrests, lockable brakes, and sit-to-stand padded handles. The UPWalker can be used indoors and out. Optional accessories include a cane holder, flashlight, smartphone holder, luxury carry bag and shopping bag.
