The Kaye Posture Control Walker

(2 customer reviews)

Description

The Kaye Posture Control Walker (Ireland) is designed to make walking easier, whilst improving postural alignment. It has an open-front “barrier-free” design which helps to improve the user’s social development and interaction skills with others. It also enables the user to get closer to school desks and work surfaces. The rear bar is also an important feature of the Kaye Walker as it acts as a stimulus on the user’s hip extensors, prompting the user to take the next step.

As a child grows and the walker is adjusted in height, the “footprint” of the walker increases, thus ensuring the walker remains stable throughout. It has an easy-folding aluminum frame with height-adjustable legs. The legs can be fitted with different wheel options to suit both the user’s abilities and the environment.

Each frame can be accessorized with a range of supports including oversized activity wheels, forearm supports, a seating unit, and a pelvic stabilizer with an extensor pad. Check the Accessories Tab for more details.

Accessories

Depending on the users’ abilities and the terrain, you can choose from a selection of wheels ranging from fixed front wheels and directional locking swivel wheels to oversize activity wheels for use on uneven grass and rough terrain.

Front-wheel

  • Bidirectional straight wheels– fixed (non-swivel) 5″ wheels that only allow for forwarding movement.
  • Directional Locking swivel wheels– 5″ all-weather castor-style wheels that combine swivel and fixed functions in one design.
  • Activity locking directional swivel wheels  – 9″ oversized activity wheels are ideal for family walks and country paths.

Rear-wheel / leg

  • Unidirectional (anti-return) Silent Wheels– a 5″ wheel with a built-in braking mechanism prevents the walker from rolling backward.
  • Two-Way Wheels– allowing both forward and reverse movement

Positional accessories available include a pelvic stabilizer with an extensor pad (with or without a pelvic belt); fold down seat, and a range of forearm supports with alternative handholds/grips are available for those who are unable to extend, or weight-bear, through their forearms.

    Best walker ever

  2. Kevin Mulcahy

    I received my new Kaye Walker recently and I am very pleased with it. It is sturdy and robust and so convenient in getting around. I have cerebral palsy, spastic diplegia, which affects my legs and this walker allows me to straighten up when I walk and helps me to walk more efficiently, enhancing my independence and quality of life. I really appreciate it so much and I would recommend this walker for anyone with cerebral palsy or any disability which affects walking. It is so reliable and it makes life easier and that is such a bonus!
