Both my wife and I are disabled and overweight. We suffer from back, knee, ankle, etc. pain which makes mobility a daily struggle for us. The FOOTBAR®Walker has vastly improved our ability to get up from normal furniture. It causes no strain on my back to help my wife get off a low piece of furniture using the FOOTBAR®Walker. My wife has suffered pain for years attempting to stand from regular chairs, and I was amazed by the ease with which she was able to stand when using the FOOTBAR®Walker.
