In 2014, an idea was conceived when friends were in need of a device to aid the wife in assisting her husband without injuring herself. The patient was an 88 year old WWII veteran recovering from a third hip replacement and had been diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and dealing with essential tremors. The wife, age 86, was the sole caregiver and wanted to keep him at home for as long as possible.
After many attempts for the right design, my wife “put her foot down” so to speak, and we realized that a footbar along with the top bar could turn a normal walker into an aid that addressed the need for both of them. It was a revelation and worked like a dream.
