About this deal

Tri-Walkers are made from lightweight frames with three rolling wheels for easy manoeuvrability. This design means they are compact and easy to store, especially with a foldable frame. There are a number of actions that you can take to minimise your risk of a fall whilst using a walking aid. These poles felt extremely comfortable, with a natural cork grip-foam extension combo, similar to the Montem’s handle, that kept hands comfortable and dry. The handle felt a little smaller than others. It also has some of the tighter-adjusting wrist straps, which are padded and smooth-seamed, making these well-suited for smaller hands and wrists or for someone who doesn’t like a bulky grip.

Four wheeled walkers, when used appropriately, will allow the person to adopt a more fluent walking pattern. Large wheels and/or large swivelling castors facilitate travel. However, they may be too mobile for people who need to lean or push against the frame for support - the frame may run away from them. The size of these walkers make them more suitable for outside use, but with adequate space, can be used inside. If you are using axilla crutches, do not lean on the underarm pad as this may interrupt the blood flow and put pressure on important nerves that run through the armpit. The handgrips should be positioned so that the elbows are slightly flexed. Wheeled walking frames are basically the same as standard pulpit frames but instead of ferrules they have small wheels on the front legs. It may be possible to exchange the ferrules on a standard, non-mobile frame for wheeled extensions. The small wheels make them more suitable for indoor use but, as the wheels do not swivel, they can be difficult to manoeuvre. Pressure brakesThese are operated by downward pressure on a spring-loaded frame. This causes the motion of the rear wheels to be interrupted when the user is leaning on the frame. However, they may not be suitable for users who cannot push down heavily enough on the frame or for heavier users who may apply the brakes permanently Small solid wheels or castors are really only suitable for use indoors and may require more effort to push over deep pile carpet or carpet bars than larger wheels.Consider the size of the frame base if it is going to be used in a domestic setting, as some may be too wide to go through small doorways. Frames with four legs that are spread widely apart will be the most stable but may be difficult to get through doorways. If the doorway is particularly narrow, the user may have to walk through sideways. Narrow four-legged frames are available, but are not as stable. The EVA foam upper grip and shaft extension are firm but soft as suede for comfortable handling, and we appreciated the lightly padded wrist straps that lent extra support on ascents and descents. With a smaller diameter than many, the Ascents also felt lighter than they actually are, and the reinforced carbon made these slim poles feel durable and long-lasting. But since the internal tightening cord isn’t protected, nor are the shaft pieces reinforced at the connection points, they might chip over time, hurting the design rating. The majority of walking frames are made of aluminium. Some are made of steel which may be stronger for heavy duty use, but will weigh more. Some suppliers will offer a range of colours.

Some pulpit shaped frames have a different folding mechanism. The frame is folded by pulling up a wooden ball, suspended between the top and bottom horizontal bars at the front of the frame, lifting the bottom bar upwards and closing the frame as it pivots at the point where the bottom bar meets the rear legs of the frame. Mobility scooters can be useful if you struggle to walk or are disabled, need to travel long distances, and are able to get on and off a mobility scooter easily. How to get a scooter Your body frame, e.g. your height, shape and weight. If you are a particularly large, tall or short person, you will need to ensure that the equipment you choose is suitable for your weight and height Hand grips often have adjustable, sometimes padded, wrist straps that can support your hands, so you don’t have to grip the pole as tightly. They are also useful for keeping your poles securely with you. Make sure your grips and straps feel comfortable to prevent sore spots or blisters.The ample grip surface area is made with rubber designed for comfort in extremely cold temperatures and helps you navigate tough inclines, whether on the slopes or off. Walking equipment should not be used in wet floor areas. If you need to access a wet room or shower area, ask the advice of an occupational therapist. You may be able to install grab rails.
