NF-WALKER

Regardless of a user’s individual level of functionality, the NF-Walker mobility aid initiates better social interaction through independent standing and walking, while keeping hands free.

The dynamic, custom-fit device not only facilitates greater participation in everyday activities, but research shows that moderate physical activity in a standing position reduces the risks of negative health outcomes associated with sedentary behaviour.

In addition, movement performed in an upright and weight-bearing position that has been properly corrected can prevent complications related to a person’s specific medical diagnosis.
