Improved General Condition
Apart from being an excellent aid for getting patients up and about, the walker is also a valuable rehabilitation tool. Rehabilitation using the walker keeps the patient’s muscles and alimentary canal active and generally contributes to improving the general condition of the otherwise bedridden. It makes it easier for infirm patients or those with weak legs to walk, and some can even manage with - out the support of healthcare personnel.
Improved Work Ergonomics
The walker creates conditions for much better working ergonomics for those who care for, train and work together with patients. For example, the open design provides increased manoeuvring space and makes access easier when getting up or dressing. The Bure StandTall Walker contributes to reduced workloads and is an investment in personnel health.
The Bure StandTall Walker has anatomically designed cushions at a slight incline that help shoulders and arms to relax. Its design helps to shift the focus from muscles in the hands, arms and shoulders to larger muscle groups such as leg and chest muscles. Stability is improved and the walker is easier to steer, at the same time as trunk bending is cushioned and posture improved.
