Extra product information

FRAME 
Black with “U” shaped base that surround the user at the front and sides. The stable design reduces the possibility of the frame being tipped forward or backward. A clear plastic protective shield is attached to the front portion of the frame.

SEAT 
Lift up padded seat attaches to the cross brace by two screw on clamps. 
Basket attaches to the frame beneath the seat by two screw on clamps

BACK SUPPORT 
Padded back support bar

HAND GRIPS 
The hand grips are contoured rubber and have a single lever brake on the left and right hand side. The handle height is adjusted by a releasing the lever on both sides and adjusting the push button mechanism.

TENSION ADJUSTMENT 
The rolling speed can be adjusted to control the walking speed. The rolling speed control knobs (tension adjustment knobs) are situated at the base of the unit and act on the drive wheels . Turning the knobs clockwise will slow the walking frame down for more control of its speed; turning anti clockwise will release the tension brakes for freer wheeling.

DRIVE WHEELS 
The wheels can traverse indoor and outdoor surfaces except grass.

CASTORS 
The frame has five swivelling double castors with two on either side and one on the front beam. The castors give the frame greater manoeuvrability and enable it to turn in a space of 740mm. The spring loaded front castor system rolls over obstacles as high as 25mm.

BRAKES 
Two bicycle grips with cable brake are located under the handles. Squeezing the grips to the handles releases the brake. Releasing the grips applies the brakes.

Lift up seat, lift back rest bar forward and lower to the ground. This folds the handle bar section flat against the base. A hook and loop strap can be used to keep the frame sections together.

TRANSPORTATION 
The U-Step folds flat and can be transported in the back seat or boot of a medium size car.

Options

– Oxygen cylinder holder 
– LaserLight can be fitted to the handlebars. This provides a visual cue to help break freezing episodes. By pressing a button, a bright red laser light is projected onto the floor. People who experience neurological freezing can step over the beam to resume movement. The visual cue helps to break the freezing episode. 
– Front one piece hand grip
