5/5 Ease of Use
5/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: carol c. from winsted, ct (caregiver)
User Details: A teenage girl who loves style but has balance issues.
Strengths: The biggest was the fact that it is a nice color and not so intrusive. She had refused to use the last walker ordered by professionals as it was ugly, huge and made her feel antisocial. Designers need to take note that equipment is only useful if the person is willin to use it. The Nimbo walker gets a lot of use around school and I bought another one for home. It gives her many opportunities to get out of her wheelchair which is very important. The price was very reasonable.
Weaknesses: The bar hit her lower back so I have taken a garden kneeling pad, covered it and attached it. This problem may be unique to us. The handle grips are not comfortable so I used foam insulation tape to wrap around. The grips could be improved so they are softer.
