The walker is a technical aid for mobility. It is a metal structure that provides the user with greater stability and support when walking and, in many cases, provides greater psychological peace of mind.

The walkers are indicated for people with weakness in one or both lower limbs, people with balance disorders or those who present a picture of global decrease in strength but who maintain enough in the upper limbs to handle it.

There is a wide variety and typology of walkers. It is important to choose the most suitable for each patient to guarantee maximum functionality.

The most basic walkers are known as step walkers. Accessories, such as wheels, brakes, seats, baskets or trays, can be added to complement the walker and give it other advantages in order to adapt to the user’s needs.

Whichever modality of walker is chosen, it is important to adjust it to the appropriate height for the patient. To do this, we will place the user standing with his arms resting in a relaxed position on the sides. When using the walker, the elbows should be slightly flexed (approximately 20º elbow flexion). This proper fit allows the person to support approximately half their weight. If the arms are not bent at a comfortable angle, the patient will put too much strain on the shoulders and back.
