Laser Cane

The great thing about this product is that, it is lightweight. So it is ideal for not putting too much weight on the user, especially with their strength being weaker than it used to be before they had Parkinson’s. The laser crane projects a bright red line across your path. The crane is also useful for Ataxia and stroke rehabilitation. The adjustability and power which can last over a couple of months has benefited many people for walking support.

The laser on the mobility aids, assists with a freezing gait often seen in Parkinson’s Disease.

U-Step 2 Walking Stabiliser

This is a UK product with Attainability UK which is useful for people with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions such as: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). The stabiliser comes with a reversed braking system, rolling resistance control, and a spring loaded front wheel. Benefits include correcting posture, helping the user to be kept upright.

The U-Step 2 is now available with additional weights and gutter arms. These increase stability and help those who have weak grip strength.
