  • Perceived effectiveness for Walking problems: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I did find using the chair to be a great help but it also really accelerated my muscle weakness and atrophy. I now use a rollator in the house. I bought the chair used but the rollator would have been a better deal.
Side effects: Atrophy of muscles
