  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: Weekly
Advice & Tips: Most of the time I am using my walker when I know I am going to be out and about for more than ten minutes. Getting it in and out of the car can be awkward but its like having a mini trolley to put things in so beneficial in that respect.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: Weekly
Advice & Tips: I found it difficult to use because the public are not used to seeing this sort of equipment used by a young man (of 50!), it also promps people to ask whats wrong and sometimes I'm not too much in the mood to go into the ins and outs of ALS with a stranger in the street. I used it initially to avoid falling but the seat is fantastic, my falls used to be as a consequence of tripping but I am too slow for that now. But I now fall because my legs fold, probably because of fatigue, the rollator helps enormously in this regard. If I feel tired I sit down. Terrific!
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: Weekly
Advice & Tips: It is difficult as a 48 year old man to get used to using a walker which is normaally associated with elderly OAP's. However, I realised that this is all in my head and and caan be banished by concentrating on the more ppositive effects of getting further and being more independent. Well worth it, and it keeps the wheelchair at bay for a wee bit longer. It is difficult for my children when they see me on it, and it saddens me that I can do little about that.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Ataxia (lack of coordination): Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Advice & Tips: I have learned even walking with the walker causes major fatigue. My symptoms have not worsened since last flare; I've just become more aware. So I've moved on to a wheelchair, which is much less fatiguing.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Improve mobility: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Balance problems: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Imbalance when walking: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Advice & Tips: height of walker can be raised, can lead to shoulder rolling & neck pain.(remember when Mom told you to stand up straight?!) With the walker "others" really see you when you are out, & many will be quick to offer help. Even though "we" used to "do it all", never turn down help. It lends great stability to walking, & lets you go just a little farther. A walker is called a Rollater & many kinds are made. 1st one,can apply for Medicare coverage,so research before buying. Some stores will submit paperwork to Medicare & let you take item.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Walking problems: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Make sure that the seat height is appropriate for your height. Handle grips need to be considered if you have sensory problems with hands. Try out different handle and brake styles, not just grips if possible (some pharmacies offer rentals). Just because it is "ergonomical" doesn't mean that it will be best for you. A basket located under the seat (versus in the front or on the handles) works best. Try picking it up, if you are going to have to lift it for yourself. The written versus physical weight may surprise you.
