NF - Walker

NF - Walker

The NF-Walker is a dynamic aid for standing and walking, used by children and adults with different handicaps.


With the NF-Walker the user is able to
• Stand in an upright position
Bear the weight with the legs
Without using a saddle.


The therapeutic concept
The NF-Walker increases the mobility and activity in daily life by enabling free movement for hands and arms. The aid is exactly fitted to the motor skills of the user.
In doing so, following points are very important:
The posture of the joints and the movement sequence
The topic and the goals of the therapeutic treatment.


An ideal care is ensured by an intensive teamwork with parents, caretakers and therapists, together with periodic controls of the adjustment of the height and the motoric status.


Technical Data
The adjustability of all components ensures that the aid can be adapted individually and even “grows” as the child.


The procedure of the NF-Walker treatment
The treatment of a person with a movement disorder needs a properly analysis of individual abilities and problems.


At the beginning of a treatment the goals and possibilities of the NF-Walker use are discussed with parents, caretakers, doctors and therapists.


Our employees take a lot of time to adjust the aid exactly and to achieve a good adaption. The persons who apply the NF-Walker get a considerable instruction how to use it right.
