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
