What is a Forearm Platform Walker?
A forearm platform walker is a walker with platform arm supports that allow users with limited arm strength to use a walker. When a person uses a standard walker, he is putting a lot of his weight on his hands fingers to wrist area), which are gripping the walker.
A person without much hand strength can find using a walker to be very difficult, since he has a hard time gripping the walker and using his hands to bear weight. By attaching platform armrests or by using a platform walker, he’s alleviating the aforementioned issue, since he can now simply rest his hands on the platform, without having to grip the walker in the least.
A platform walker with wheels allows the user to put his weight on his forearms (area between wrist and elbow) instead of on his hands.
