K walker

Hi everyone, haven’t been on this site for a while.

I went for physio last week and she had arranged for someone to come with a k walker for me to try, I need to practice to try and walk with it for some time.

Just wanted to know does anyone use this?and does it help?

thank you

Hello Kazza.

I’ve never used one but when I was teaching young children one or two of them used the K walker with a good deal of proficiency. If you have a good level of strength in both arms then I think it would be worth a try. I’d be a bit wary of being on wheels however, especially going downhill. One of the claims of the K frame is that it assists you with posture. Still, you never know until you try.

Best wishes, Steve.

Thanks Steve,

Yes my arms did hurt while using it, and the physio wants my posture to get better.

i need a lot of practice though. Children seem to be a lot better on them after seeing that little boy on britains got talent.

We will see, I think it’s going to take some time.

Bye for now

Karen.

They look good to me
