Unlike imitation rollators with upright arms simply stuck into their existing rollator frame, the UPWalker offers advanced, patented design for increased stability, comfort and user benefit.
Compared to imitation products, the original UPWalker was designed and backed by an established mobility company in the United States to be safer and more stable than imitations. You get what you pay for, and no price is too high for safeguarding you and your loved ones.
The UPWalker is designed to position the user mass in the center of the unit, front to back and side to side with user weight directed downward inside the wheels, thereby stabilizing the user when walking or standing. Patented design features of the UPWalker increase stability by positioning the user’s weight inside the wheels instead of on top of the wheels, reducing fall risk. Imitation products position the user mass toward the front of the unit, with hands close to the front wheels creating a forward tip over hazard.
Due in part to its unique design, the innovative UPWalker is the only upright walker to receive ISO 11199-3:2005 Certification for both indoor and outdoor use. This certification is awarded according to stringent tests for stability of walking aids with horizontal arm supports. Independent testing of impostures demonstrates a tip over risk.
In addition to its stability and safety design features, the UPWalker also includes features designed for user comfort and ease of use. Unlike imitation products that come in multiple pieces that need to be assembled, the UPWalker comes conveniently pre-assembled so it is ready to use the moment you get it.
