How it's Different from Competitors

This mobility device has been specifically designed to solve problems that are generally associated with traditional walkers. One of the things that are very good about it is that it greatly reduces the chances of a fall. It also corrects posture, preventing long-term problems associated with using traditional walkers. Since it is much more stable, it gives the person using it much more confidence, and since it allows for correct posture, it is also more comfortable to use. Most walkers require to put your entire body weight upon your wrists, and this can cause a lot of pain and even damage to the wrists if the walker is used in the very long term.

In comparison, the UPWalker mobility device supports you while you walk upright, and very securely, thus preventing pain and making you more confident in moving around. Since enforced immobility directly impacts your quality of life, this mobility device could be set to directly improve your quality of life. With this mobility device, you can actually continue with a very mobile lifestyle. Since this walker can be used both outdoors and indoors, it allows for a lot of versatility in moving around. With this walker, you can once again exercise go shopping, or even go to various events and parties.

Features

  • Incorporates a Seat

    There is a seat made of resilient fabric, that has a variable position, which allows you to either sit or else to walk for a considerable period of time with comfort and adequate support. The seat also has a backrest that allows you to sit comfortably.

  • A Carry Bag

    This mobility device actually has a carry bag attached to the frame, allowing you to keep your hands free while moving around. It massively increases both balance and safety and ensures that you don’t leave your belongings behind somewhere while you concentrate on the mechanics of moving around. There are different variations available on this carry bag, including a stylish luxury bag, and a large bag for shopping.

  • Hardy Construction

    The device is made of reinforced aluminum and is extremely durable. It also contains composites of polyurethane and plastics. A lot of the construction principles used here are drawn from the aircraft industry and from automobile manufacturing, which makes this device not only sturdy but extremely light in weight.

  • Excellent Brakes

    The wheels on this walker have an excellent set of breaks and conveniently located handles that are also designed to be ergonomic. Also, the breaks can be used to immobilize the walker if you want to sit down and rest for a while.

  • Customizable

    There are a lot of adjustments that you can make to various parts of the walker to truly customize the device to your unique body type. Everything from the height of the armrests, to pivoting grips for the hands can be customized. The length of each armrest can also be perfectly customized to perfectly suit your forearm length.

    All these customizations have a locking feature so that you only have to go through the process of setting them once. After the device has been constructed, it stays that way and you don't have to adjust it every time you're going to use the walker.

Pros

  • Enhanced Safety

    The careful engineering put into this device ensures that it is very stable, thereby greatly limiting the chances of a fall. This stability will give you much more confidence as you move around while using this walker.

  • Reduced Pain and Damage

    Since your body weight is very evenly distributed when using this walker and doesn’t come down solely upon your wrists, there is less chance of damage to the wrists, and overall increased levels of comfort. Instead of pressure falling on the wrists, ergonomically designed armrests take the strain of holding up the body’s weight, which is also assisted by a specially designed seat that lets you walk upright easily. This has been found to be especially beneficial for people suffering from arthritis.

  • Suited to Stroke Patients

    People suffering from issues like stroke, in which the balance could be affected, tend to benefit considerably from using this walker. Since UpWalker is so sturdy and strong, it allows people who have balance issues to maintain their stability far more easily. If you have these issues, you’ll be well advised to take your therapist’s recommendation as to whether this walker could benefit you.

  • Transportation is Easy

    This walker is designed to fold into an extremely compact shape that could easily be placed in the backseat of a car or in the trunk of a vehicle. The only exception would be the trunk of the most compact cars.

    If you’re doubtful as to whether the walker will fit into the trunk of your car, you’ll be well advised to measure the trunk of your vehicle beforehand. Even if the walker does not fit into the trunk of the vehicle, it is almost always possible to place it in the backseat.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Use Indoors and Outdoors

    The walker is designed to be streamlined and especially suited to passing through doorways, which many other walkers fail at. It has excellent maneuverability and can function over a wide range of surfaces. While it is suited to the confines of moving around indoors, it is also equally suited to use outdoors.

    The built-in seat of the walker means that you can rest between fazes of walking, allowing you to cover a far longer distance than you would otherwise. Also, the built-in bag of the walker and a holder for beverages means that you can do various chores while moving around.

  2. Consult the Walker’s Manual

    Since the walker has been carefully engineered for convenience, it is shipped completely assembled. However, it has a manual that you should consult to get the best results. The manual will guide you through the process of customizing the walker to your own unique needs and physical makeup. It is a very simple process that requires a very small number of steps to get the walker operational.

Does It Really Work?

Yes. The UpWalker really does work by getting you back on your feet and helping to regain some of your independence. Since the UpWalker allows you to stand upright, it will help correct your posture, cause you less pain and will help you feel more secure and independent.

The wide stance of this product, its elbow rests and handles allow you to go places that you never thought you could. It also features large 8-inch wheels so that it can virtually glide over any surface. You will be able to walk on gravel, grass or solid surfaces with ease. Most users claim that they feel safer, stable and more secure when using this walker when compared to traditional walkers. They even claim that they are more active after making the switch to this type of walker.

Fraud

You may say price is 495.00 from ad on tv, but it is not. 599.97 is how they quoted it to me, saying that the free things add up to the 100.00. It reads to me as fraud.

TOO Expensive

This costs more than my wife's motorized wheelchair! For a walker that appears to only have been extended, it tells me that company is all about the money, not helping people. I understand companies need to profit but this is BS!

Why is there no answers to all these questions? Especially about if insurance will cover the cost. I know $600 is out of my price range of affordability!
I'm looking at my hugo and wondering if I can make adaptations myself for far less cost.

The $495 price is a mislead. The tv ad offers 3 free gifts valued at a total of $100.(their valuation not necessarily real world value). I have been researching this and have not found it for less than 594.95.

The website advertises $100 "savings" by adding at no extra charge a backrest, a personal pouch and a cup holder and free shipping valued at $60. There is no discount on the device.

As long as you had a RX for walker stating UP Walker insurance should pay 80%. It is advertised on TV cheaper so that's where I would purchase it from.

Do They Accept MEDICARE?

Since it is so expensive. Would it be medicare approved as an aid for walking? My husband had a serious stroke. He has no balance, but can walk some on a walker. If this is so wonderful, I believe they should accept Medicare. When you pay this much Out-Of-Pocket, you need to know who certified it. If it IS certified by someone clout, should be able to get it easy!

UpWalker Simply Too High

Simply too high - Just a Walker - only with an extention. Elderly people are on a fix budget cannot afford such. This is not much more than a wheel chair and should not cost much more than a regular walker with a few extra added. Too expensive.
