A really good idea but improvements to the design are needed.
Mom was able to try out the walker at a retailer and found that, for walking, it was very comfortable for her and likely would have been better than her standard walker.
However, Mom needs to sit every so often and relies on her walker for sitting when comfortable seating is not available.
The SEAT design of the UpWalker is too narrow for her, the back support does not allow her to do much more than a "perch" on the seat, and the arms cannot be moved out of the way for sitting.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
