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.

The FOOTBAR Walker is a miraculous invention! My father at age 91 broke his hip in 11 places. With the FOOTBAR , he was able to get up and down easily and without stress to his body. It allowed his caregiver the ability to respond to his needs with very little strength and effort on their part. Our family will forever be thankful for this wonderful invention.

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 . 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.

I am totally in love with my FOOTBAR Walker. It not only has helped me to gain strength in my upper body, I no longer have to worry about being somewhere with the inability to get up and down. Before I would dread being somewhere because I didn’t have the strength to pull up on my walker and the person assisting me was struggling to hold on. Now I have no fear that whoever is assisting can successfully help me get from a sitting to a standing position with no effort. I would recommend this walker to anyone with problems getting up and caregivers that are struggling to assist!!

I had my hip replaced and it was a very difficult time for us. My wife had to help me get out of bed and out of chairs. It was hard on her because I am not a small man. I was very heavy for her to help move me around. Gary and Nancy Morris told us about their invention, the FOOTBAR Walker. We were amazed at how easy it was for me to stand up on my own without hardship on either of us. It was great and made life easier for us. We would recommend the FOOTBAR Walker for anyone regardless of their age. Thank you, Gary and Nancy Morris.

I have been on the Rehabilitation path for over 10 year, and have seen a lot of modification, adaptive equipment within the field of Occupational Therapy/Physical Therapy. When Nancy approached our facility at the end of 2018 and demonstrated the FOOTBAR Walker I was taken back. It was brilliant! A simple safe efficient fix to eliminate some lifting, depending on the situation when transferring residents within our Skilled Nursing Facility.

I just wanted to give you a quick update on our Footbar walker and John. I have been so thankful to have this tool in my house! It took John at least a week before he would trust the walker enough to actually let it do the lifting work. At first I was thinking “why did we buy this darn thing if he isn’t going to use it”. Then it kicked in with him I guess. It has given him a freedom he wouldn’t know if we didn’t have it. He would be stuck laying in the bed 24/7 because that would be the only place he could get in and out of. The first few days home our sons were physically lifting him in and out of his recliner. He began to trust the walker more and allowed me to assist him. It has given him freedom to sit in the kitchen and his chair in addition to the bed. Rehabilitation has been slow but we are making it, and making it better with the Footbar walker!!! Wishing you the best!

For two years, my husband Marion Bash, was using just a standard walker. After multiple falls and injuries to his upper torso, he required my assistance to get up from a chair, out of bed or to get out of the car. Life changed instantly with his new FOOTBAR Walker that recently was put on the market. What a great invention!
Now he is safe using the FOOTBAR at his own pace. This new FOOTBAR gives him the ability to easily rise from his sitting position to standing position the FOOTBAR walker has relieved any hardship on my back and hips which I so desperately needed. Thanks to the FOOTBAR Walker. GANM,LLC for making life much easier. We highly recommend this product to make life more enjoyable, whether you are a patient or the caregiver. You will thank Gary and Nancy Morris for their brilliant idea of saving people’s livelihoods.

My brother-in-law had just lost his wife and was having to move to another state to be near his daughters. On his way to his new home, he stopped by Paris, TN and picked up his new FOOTBAR Walker. It has been an awesome machine to help him in his new surroundings. He is more than twice the weight of his daughter and yet, she easily helps him to his feet(and down again) as he moves about his new home. Thank you.

Our Footbar walker arrived late yesterday afternoon. I unpacked it and was glad to see there was no assembly required. Bob wasn’t having a good day yesterday and had laid down for the afternoon and was refusing his supper meal at the assisted living. But I took the Footbar walker over and explained it to him. So he sat up and got his stiff body loosened up and stood up using it. He was elated I didn’t have to pull on him. I’m anxious to see what the therapist reaction to it today will be. Thanks for acting so quickly to get it to us.

My father fell and then laid in the hospital for a few days before they started therapy. Then he went to rehab for 3 months. I brought him home and was using a slide board with him. The Therapists continued at home to work with him and we had some great ones. He went 5 months without walking. He was pulling up at a sink to stand up. A therapist found the Footbar walker online and thought the Footbar walker would work for him and it did. He continued to work hard and eventually got back to walking and can go 200 ft. with the walker. He is able to walk and doesn’t need to pull up to get up now. He is 91.
