Leg Walkers to Keep Patients Safe and Mobile
Reduce the number of falls in your health care facility with leg walkers. Wheeled and traditional walkers enable patients to walk without assistance and regain their independence after a debilitating injury or an age-related balance problem. Each walker is constructed from heavy-duty hollow tubes that provide stability and reduce weight. Delight your doctors and nurses with the perfect walker for every patient; at Quill, we carry a range of sizes and styles to suit patients with arthritis, gait problems and general post-procedure weakness from brands such as Wenzelite and Drive Medical.
Supportive Walkers Keep Patients on Their Feet
Help your patients regain their mobility faster after an injury or a medical episode with leg walkers. Each walker supports a percentage of the user's weight so that they can move around without putting undue stress on broken bones or painful joints. For patients with stability issues, choose two-wheeled walkers — the front wheels make it easier to move forward, while the static rear legs support weight and prevent the walker from slipping when the patient stops to rest. When it's time to increase lower-body strength, four-wheeled walkers get patients moving at a faster clip.
User-Friendly Designs Increase Safety and Comfort
The road to recovery is long — go the extra mile for your patients by choosing leg walkers designed for comfort. Walkers with soft rubber handles are easy to grip, so your patients can feel safe on a foray around the facility. Make a long walk possible by choosing walkers with built-in seats, and look for models with wide rubber feet to prevent slips. For elderly patients, choose walkers with integrated foot brakes for extra peace of mind.
Stability Attachments to Customize Walkers
When it comes to treatment and recovery, one-size-fits-all solutions won't do. Customize your leg walkers to meet the needs of the individual with convenient attachments. Use ankle prompts to keep a patient's legs moving in a straight line, or install upright extensions to increase the walker height to suit tall people. Enable your patients to keep the same walker throughout the healing process with a detachable seat or a trunk-support harness.
Convenient Accessories Help Patients Get the Most From Their Walkers
Improve the quality of life in your health care facility with accessories engineered to fit leg walkers. Replacement wheels ensure that each walker rolls smoothly and increase patient safety. Baskets and magazine bags hold reading material, while screw-on cup holders make it easy to take a cup of coffee or a cold drink to go on the walk from the cafeteria to a room. Seat covers in bright colors and patterns enable your patients to personalize their walkers so that they feel more at home in a hospital or nursing home.
