Walking frames - non-wheeled

These walking (or pulpit) frames are mostly used indoors. They may include the following features:

  • Adjustable height.
  • Aluminium frame.
  • Moulded plastic or foam rubber hand grips.
  • Rubber ferrules on the bottom of the legs which aim to prevent the frame from slipping.
  • Folding for storage and transportation.

To use the frame correctly, you should grip the hand grips, lift and move it slightly in front of you. You can then take your weight through the frame, and take two equal length steps into the centre of the frame.
