The majority of these zimmer frames can be easily adjusted in height. This ensures the user gets the most comfortable height setting to suit their requirements. Also included on these frames are hand grips for added comfort.
Many of these frames have been manufactured from lightweight aluminium making them robust whilst remaining light in weight.
A number of different types of walking frame are available such as;
Wheeled Walking Frames
These wheeled frames can provide a smoother walking pattern that those without wheels. Rather than having to lift the whole frame up and move forward step by step, you are able to lift the back of the frame and push it forwards. It will also allow the user to walk at a faster speed.
One downside of using a wheeled walking frame is that as the front wheels do not swivel. As a result the user may find the frame more difficult to manouevre, especially around corners. This may mean on occasion the user still has to lift the frame up to get around sharper corners.
Folding Walking Frames
As the common zimmer frames are usually bulky, they are awkward to store and hard to transport. However folding walking frames help to solve these problems and make them more space saving and travel friendly.
Bariatric Walking Frames
These bariatric zimmer frames are manufactured specifically to suit the larger, heavier user. They often are wider than standard frames and have a higher maximum user weight.
We also have a number of walking frame accessories such as netted bags and easy caddys.
