We met some customers who were afraid of moving from a cane to using a walker. It is a big change and is probably more of a challenge than simply pushing something along the road. But a walker can help you to balance better, especially when you are carrying something.
It is ideal to use the walker in safe areas - using a ramp or smooth surfaced pavement is ideal, but sometimes we need to go up and down small steps. If it is a big step, ideally you could ask someone to help you, but if it is not the case, you should use the foot pedal on our walker to lift the front wheels and rear wheels to go up and down safely.
We made a small video to share our tips on how to navigate curbs and hope that it helps you to be more safe on the streets. :)
