Helps maintain balance and stability when standing and walking
To ensure that your hemi walker will have a long service life, inspect it regularly and follow these general maintenance tips:
Wipe the frame with a soft, damp cloth at least once a week to remove any dust and dirt. If exposed to moisture, dry immediately. Do not use an abrasive cleaner that will scratch the finish.
Use only a clean towel dampened with cool water when cleaning hand grips. Confirm that the hand grips are dry before using. NEVER use ammonia-based cleaning solutions or soap on hand grips, which may cause them to loosen or crack.
Periodically inspect all tips for wear or damage. If these issues develop, discontinue use until they have been replaced.

How to Size:
Adjusting Your Hemi Walker
Before Each Use
Using Your Hemi Walker
Use your hemi walker the way you would a cane, with the hemi walker placed on your strong side, or opposite the injured side.
Begin by moving the hemi walker forward, ensuring all four legs are in contact with the floor. Holding the top hand grip securely, move your injured leg forward, followed by your strong leg. End with your hemi walker and both feet in a line.
Continue in this manner, taking short, smooth steps to ensure balance.
As your balance and stability improve, you may be able to walk with a two-step sequence, where the hemi walker and your injured leg move forward together, followed by your strong leg.
Caution: Always ensure that someone is present to provide support assistance until you have practiced and become proficient at using your hemi walker.
Walker Three-Point Gait Pattern
Align the middle of your feet with the back legs of the walker.
Ensure all four legs are in contact with the floor before putting your weight on walker and lifting the hemi walker comfortably in front and to the side of you.
Step forward carefully using your weak leg first. Follow with your other leg, placed alongside your weak leg. Repeat steps to move forward.
