When You’re Looking For The Best Walker On The Market
My mom had slowed down in her old age and was no longer so steady on her feet so we actually had two of these Duro-med walkers in the house – one upstairs and one downstairs.
We had both Duro-Med walkers for about 8 years, and, besides replacing the slider feet, there was no other maintenance to be done.
Duro-Med 2-Button Adjustable Folding Walker with 5″ Wheels – Product Features
- The Duro-Med Adjustable Folding Walker comes with slip resistant rubber tips on the back 2 legs and two 5″ non-swivel wheels. The 5″ wheels lend a smoother and easier push to this walker.Note: NEVER use tennis balls on the bottom of a walker when the feet wear through. The tennis balls can also wear through without being noticed and grab the floor. Always replace the feet with actual replacement walker feet.
- Weight capacity 250 lbs. For larger folks, there’s the Duro-Med 2-Button Adjustable Bariatric Slip Resistant walker.
- Constructed of strong anodized 1″ aluminum tubing with riveted construction for added strength. I can vouch for how strong this thing is yet it is surprising light and very transportable as it folds flat just by pushing in 2 small button. It fits into the backseat or trunk of about any car very comfortably.
- Legs adjust from 32″ to 38″ in 1″ increments for user comfort and to promote proper walking posture.
- The Duro-Med 2-Button Folding Walker weighs just over 10 lbs and was quite easy for me to handle. My 95 lb. mother was easily able to lift and maneuver this walker anywhere she wanted to go. It was her constant companion.
- Front wheels can be quickly and easily switched to being on the inside so this walker will clear even the narrowest doorway.
