Individuals suffering from limited mobility due to a variety of medical issues often have trouble and need help standing from a seated position, or lowering into a seated position from standing. Being lifted under the arms can cause pain to both the patient and the caregiver. The FOOTBAR®Walker changes this by allowing the caregiver to use a single foot to anchor the walker to the floor, using their body weight and features a sturdy bar across the top which the patient can grip while standing or sitting and the caregiver counter pulls with little effort or stress to their shoulders, back or health. Check out the -“Using the FOOTBAR®Walker” page for written instructions on how it works.
The FOOTBAR®Walker is just fabulous
The FOOTBAR®Walker is just fabulous. I can’t tell you how much it has revolutionized my care of George. I no longer have to pull and tug on him. The ease of getting him up from a low sofa or a chair without arms has been awesome! Thanks so much for giving us a new lease on life.
CAREGIVERS: Our hope is that caregivers who struggle with assisting people to stand and sit, can now protect their backs, health, and futures.
PATIENTS: Our hope is that those who have caregivers and still struggle to stand and sit back down will find that you can get up with more ease and less pain, while feeling more secure to move at your own pace while using our top bar. You know your own pain level. The FOOTBAR® eliminates the need for caregivers to pull on your arms and joints; you use your body core, arm and leg muscles, thus applying Newton’s First Law of physics of “a body in motion stays in motion.” YOU WILL BE PROTECTING YOUR CAREGIVER’S HEALTH ALSO.
EMPLOYERS: Think of your patients, and your employees backs, careers and the worker’s compensation claims that can be avoided.AUGUST 14, 2020 THEFOOTBARWALKER
