Why Use an Evolution Walker with Arm Trough?
Unlike canes and power chairs, a walker is a happy medium that helps users stay active while giving them the support they need without having to rely on another person. Retain independence and improve health and wellness and attachable arm troughs that helps clients move around with ease and peace of mind.
Everyone has different needs, which means people sometimes can’t use traditional walker handle grips, but require a device that provides them with mobility. Evolution’s innovative arm trough system can be used for someone who needs support on one or both sides of their body.
It can also be adjusted to the proper height of the user, and the brake assembly can be altered if the walker moves too swiftly for the user. The Removable 7” midsection can be adjusted for extra low seating. This versatile system comes with built-in tools, so users never have to go looking for their toolkit to make adjustments.
Fitting the arm trough system on an Evolution walker is an excellent mechanism to use for gait training and physical therapy. It offers a stable platform, allowing users to remain upright with their forearms secured in the ergonomic arm pads. Whether the user has a disability or injury, the arm trough system is like training wheels on a bicycle—extra guidance that helps your body remember how to function.
Evolution Evo models include a basket that holds all kinds of items for the user, from groceries to books to clothing. Bending down to pick items out of the basket or to grab something nearby can cause people to lose their balance. To remain upright, Evolution’s innovative arm trough system is a life-saver because it prevents injuries.
Walking is a low-impact exercise that has many health benefits, from improved circulation to stronger bones. Users can get back to enjoying walks since they can remain upright. Evolution’s innovative arm trough system can support a weight capacity of 400 lbs, and that’s with both arm troughs on the walker.
Whether you suffer from a neurological condition or are recovering from an injury, the comfy arm pads of the system lets users be productive. They don’t need to rely too heavily on another person, which means users are confident in their abilities. If the user is recovering from an injury, the trough system can act as a measuring tool that helps users and medical practitioners see how the user’s physical condition and health have improved.
It’s important to remember that there’s nothing wrong with needing extra help. When traditional walker handle grips just don’t work, the addition of arm troughs are the perfect device for allowing users to remain upright with ease, confidence, and strong support.
