The Platform U Step II Walker is a multiple wheeled mobility aid with adjustable forearm supports designed for users who need additional upper body support when walking. The U shaped base is extremely stable and provides support in every direction. Users with walking or balancing difficulty due to neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, ALS, MSA and PSP will find this specialized walking aid helpful for increasing mobility independence.
The Platform version of the U Step II Walker is designed for users who need additional upper body support, are unable to use both hands or are unable to stand up straight when walking. This walking aid is often helpful for users with Brain Injuries or Stroke who need additional support when walking. The arm platforms are highly adjustable for various arm positions. Using the Platform U Step II Walker is not like pushing a standard rolling walker. This walker surrounds the user with a unique wheelbase and frame that are extremely stable and provide support in every direction.
The U Step Walker II has an innovative braking system that prevents the walker from moving until the user is ready to walk. This feature is particularly helpful when standing up from a chair because the unit will not roll away. The user lightly squeezes either brake release lever to move the walker forward. When the lever is released, the walker stops immediately.
The Platform U Step II Walker Medicare code (HCPCS) is E0147.
