  • Perceived effectiveness for Improve mobility: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I was using a walker in the past to help me with mobility. I was able to stop using it after I went through the LSVT Big Exercise Program and was feeling great. Then, I found out that this intense exercising, made me tear the meniscus in both my knees, and I had arthroscopic knee surgery on both knees on 11/3/10. I am doing rehab with my LSVT therapist, who wants me to use my walker again.

Advice & Tips: My rolling walker has a seat when I get tired. My daughter-in-law made a tray that fits onto the seat with Velcro strips. I am able to carry things from one room to another with this walker. With the cane I don't have enough hands, or can't lift too heavy a weight. I would encourage everyone to use this walker even though it is not cheap. If it prevents just one fall, it is worth it. Iam much steadier on my feet and not so worried about a fall.
Cost: $200+ monthly

Advice & Tips: Start with tennis balls before you wear down the legs on the back.... it will cost you more to replace the whole walker than to buy 2.00 tennis balls and run from dogs. You can get them pre-cut or cut them yourself. Don't be shy, use the walker! It will do it's job and save you a head injury, so don't be ashamed... I still use mine on bad days.
Cost: < $25 monthly
