U Step Walker Reverse Brake Walker

model: U-Step II, US-PC2, Walking Stabilizer
Passive Control, Parkinson's Therapy Aid

Reverse braking system. The U-Step II Walker brake system works the opposite of typical walkers. Squeeze to walk, release the brake lever and it stops with the brake applied.

Yes, It's in-stock, ready to ship to your door.

The U-Step Walker has all the features you wanted in an advanced walker and if you've done your research you already know there is not a lot to choose from when looking for a reverse-brake walker.

The innovative braking system is easy to use and puts you in complete control. The U-Step will not roll unless you are ready to walk. When you lightly squeeze a hand brake, the unit will roll with you. Once you release the hand brake the unit will stop immediately. This feature is particularly helpful when standing up from a chair because, the unit will not roll away from you. This type of braking system also works correctly if you want to turn and sit on the walker seat.

The U-Step Walking Stabilizer was created to increase your independence. The secret is in the patented U shaped base. Its ultra-stable foundation braces you in every direction. It is not like pushing a walker. Instead, the U-Step surrounds you and moves with you. You will feel as stable as you would feel holding onto another personís arm.

Folding U Step Walker: Folds easily for compact storage or transport.

Padded Seat: Includes padded seat and underseat basket.

Slow Down Brake: The U-Step II includes a "slow-down" adjustable tension brake that can be adjusted to the individuals needs and/or capabilities. This allows "throttling" the walker so it can be set anywhere between very easy to push and difficult to push, slowing the user down to their own safe pace.

Frame Color: black

Delivery, Lead-Time:
In-stock, ships from our Arizona warehouse. Allow 3-5 business days for delivery via FEDEX Ground.


Recommended at dozens of major Parkinsonís centers! Used by thousands of people with Parkinsonís.


More on the Reverse Brake System:
Slightly squeezing one or both the brake levers releases the brake, and the backrest flips over and toward the user so that it can be used instead of the handlebars. When the backrest is flipped back, it also serves as a brake release. The user simply pushes down to release the walker (see video below).

Laser Light Option:
Primarily used by those with Parkinsonís freezing but can be used by anyone with an irregular gait pattern.
If you suffer from freezing episodes, U-Step II has a solution. Introducing Laser Light, an optional feature of the U-Step. Simply press the red button on the handlebar and a bright red laser line is projected on the floor for you to step over. See projected line illustrated below. It is amazing! The laser offers an entirely safe, obstacle-free, visual cue that helps you break the ďfreezing episode,Ē and walk normally with increased stride length.

Just what I was looking for February 4, 2015
Reviewer: L Adams from Horseshoe Bend, ID United States  
I only received my U-Step II yesterday so I haven't had much opportunity to use it but my initial impression is that it will help me a lot.  I have had multiple sclerosis for more than 40 years and, while I am able to walk in a limited environment,  I need a power wheelchair away from the house.  I have a cane that I can use for short distances, but I am hoping the U-Step II will fit somewhere in the middle. To help me on ground that is too much for the cane but I would be able to manage without the wheelchair

U-Step II November 22, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Baton Rouge, LA United States  
The service I received from PHC was excellent.  They answered my pre-purchase questions and shipped the walker very quickly.  I received it in good order and shape.  And, i had no trouble assembling it.  The directions were fine.

However, i'm disappointed in the walker.  It is very large and very heavy for every day use in cars and suv's.  My wife, who has Parkinson's, is very small and frail, as are many Parkinson's patients.  They should really make a version of this for smaller people.  It is very stable; rolls and turns beautifully on hard wood floors.  Not so much on carpet.  She struggles to push it.  It will not fit in 22 inch bathroom doors; but i knew that before ordering it.  That, too, should be fixed in the future.  There is no reason not to shorten the width by 2 inches.  This product has wonderful possibility.  Alas, it is not fully realized and should be for the enormous cost of the unit.  I'm sorry to give it only two stars.

79 yr old parkinson patient
Reviewer: Beth W. from Tempe, AZ United States  
This is an expensive product and took a whole month for delivery, but once we received it my husband was able to use it right away. It is a wonderful product and now he can move around the house without worry of falling.

excellent for us
Reviewer: Felicia S. from Gulf Shores, AL  
My husband has Parkinson’s and needed a walker that would help prevent him from falling.  We tried a standard walker but that didn’t work well. I called PHC and they recommended the U-Step II.  The walker provides more stability because the U shape surrounds him, more maneuverability because the turning wheels are towards the base middle. It also is only 22” wide making doorways an easy pass through. It is everything it’s advertised to be.

Reviewer: Sheila K. from Orlando, FL  
My mother has MS and  balance issues. Upon the advice of PHC I ordered the U-Step ii walker and it offers her much more stability than her previous walker. The reverse brakes and the rolling resistance are also helpful features. So glad I found this.
