Walkers, Wheeled, Adjustable Width

Definition : Walkers designed with wheeled frameworks that are adjustable in width. These walkers typically consist of a metal (some also include hard plastics) structure that frames the front and sides of users at waist level; they usually include a set of casters (i.e., wheels) and supports (i.e., grips) for the hands. The rails that connect the handles and those that connect the front two wheels are made of pipes that telescope either manually or automatically by pressing a button allowing a width adjustment typically from 12 to 15 cm (5 or 6 inches). Adjustable-width wheeled walkers permit users to customize the walkers for their particular needs and to facilitate ambulation through doors and along narrow halls. They are used for permanent assistance of disabled (e.g., infirm) patients and/or during rehabilitation.
