Also called Side-Stepper Walkers, these are one-handed walkers that work much like a cane does. You hold it to one side for full support. Hemi-Walkers fold-up for easy transport and storage.
Limitations on user height: The tallest handle height on a Hemi-Walker is about 36" from the ground. This handle height range works great for users up to 5'11'. Taller users may be forced to lean over too far. Always pre-measure the patient. Simply hold a yardstick to patient's side and see where the hand lands.
Hemi Walkers are ideal for recovery from any type of lower body surgery. Ideal for hip, knee, ankle and foot injuries and recovery. Hemi-Walkers are also used by patients with balance and strength issues.
