FOOTBAR® Dealers / DME Suppliers

The FOOTBAR Walker is a Class I Medical Device.

According to the National Coverage Determination (NCD) for Mobility Assistive Equipment (MAE), to consider an MAE, including a walker, reasonable and necessary, you must determine that the beneficiary/patient has a personal mobility deficit that impairs their participation in mobility-related activities of daily living (MRADLs) such as toileting, feeding, dressing, grooming, and bathing in customary locations within the home. Coverage and payment determinations are made based on the Clinical Criteria for MAE coverage.

Who is the FOOTBAR Walker appropriate for?

 

  • For patients unable to perform Sit to Stand (STS) transfer function.
  • For patients who are weak or suffer from physical or neurological conditions which impair the STS function.
  • For patients at high risk for development of a pressure ulcer due to prolonged sitting and are unable to perform a functional weight shift.
  • For patients with an inability to create enough personal momentum or force to safely push one’s self up to a standing position.

 

 

Examples of medical conditions include: lack of lower body strength, generalized weakness, neurological diagnosis or disease progressions like Alzheimer’s, dementia(s) such as Lewy Bodies, Frontotemporal (FTD), Vascular, neuromuscular diseases, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Transverse Myelitis, Osteoarthritis, Chronic pain sufferers, amputation, Obesity, Stroke, and Sarcopenia to name a few which limit or inhibit STS function. Physical conditions such as surgery or injury may also prevent STS function.

 

Is a Prescription needed?

 

Certificates of Medical Necessity or prescriptions may be necessary for some insurance payers as requirement for coverage/reimbursement. We recommend using our Certificate of Medical Necessity or obtaining a prescription from the patient’s primary physician. Due to the information required to prove medical necessity, it is recommended to download or print our CMN form to be filled out and submitted.
