  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Walking problems)
  • side effects
    Severe (Atrophy of muscles)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
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
