Dyna Rehaid Walking Frame (Walker)
A Walking Frame (also called as Walker) provides better support than using only a walking stick.
- The Dyna Walking Frame is designed as per biomechanical principles for proper weight distribution
- Wide frame for better stability
- Made of aluminium so it is light-weight but supports more weight. The aluminium pipes are anodised and hence and rust-proof. Cheap steel walkers are heavy and prone to rust
- Telescopic height adjustment based on height of patient. Height of adult walkers can be adjusted from 30 inches to 36 inches in 1 inch increments. Height of pediatric walkers can be adjusted from 22 inches to 26 inches in 1 inch increments.
- Can be folded for compact storage and transport
- Soft cushion hand-grips for comfortable use for long time
- Rubber Tips to minimize chance of slipping on smooth surfaces
- Supports a maximum load of 100 kg
When to use a Walking Frame:
- Starting to walk after surgery
- Gait training for people using artificial limbs
- Geriatric Patients who need assistance when walking
How to use a walking frame:
1. Adjust the height of the walker to be about waist-high. The height should be comfortable for the patient. It should allow for a slight bend of the elbow when you hold the handgrips of the walker – this is necessary to maintain blood circulation when using the walking frame. The ideal height (upto the handgrip) is the height of the patient upto the wrist when standing with arms on the side and elbows slightly bent.
2. Stand between the 2 sides of the walker
3. Pick up the walker and place it a short distance ahead
4. Move a step forward to the walker
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4
Keep your back straight. Don’t hunch over the walker
