    UPWalker

    On the fence

    Overall Experience:

    I have only had this walker about a month. I saw it on TV and asked my surgeon about it. Though not familiar with it, my doctor said anything that keeps me more upright was worth a try. I had 16 vertebrae fused.

    It took me a while to figure out the best height. I like that there are so many height choices. I like that you can sit on it. It feels sturdy. I also like the beverage holder and the pouch.

    However, I felt the advertising about the $100 off was misleading. I expected $100 off the $595 price not free shipping and a pouch and a beverage holder instead.

    If you watch the commercials carefully, you never see the walker on a carpet. I find it harder to push on carpet. Also when the walker is going over the step, you do not see the upper part of the Parkinson's disease walker's body when it goes over the step to see what he is doing to have it go over the step. I have found it difficult to go over steps.

    It is very important that you walk with your body in the walker proper. My physical therapist said my knees should touch the back band as I walk.

    It is easy to fold up but depending upon your affliction, it is not that easy to lift. With my back surgery, I cannot lift it at all.

    It shipped quickly. Though assembled there are quite a number of adjustments that needed to be made. I couldn't have done them myself due to my back surgery.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
