    Avid reader, enjoy computer challenges, always searching for knowledge on PD.
  1. One of the reasons I am so sold on the U Step walker is that you have a lot of room for adjusting for height etc: when you purchase one they will ask for your height so you get the proper fit. Mine has a total of 7 wheels for stability and going up on sidewalks and curbs. Yet it is light weight enough for even me to handle putting in the car. dygit
  2. I have used the U Step walker since April and I am very satisfied with it. I walk with a cane but could not trust my stability with just a cane when doing my walking excercise outdoors. My neurologist wrote a rx for me so insurance would help pay for some the cost, also Medicare covers it too. The overall balance of the walker and brake system are the best. I am 75 and was diagnosed 2 years ago, but know now that I probably have had PD for quite some time before the diagnosis. dygit
