My reasons for investing in the UpWalker
*I feel more secure against falling. I have spinal cord damage which affects my equibrium and I can easily fall. *the arm rest for forearm and position of the handles/brakes allows me to walk longer. No sensory feeling to all fingertips and painful neuropathy in both hands prevented use of rollater. *I can stand straight even with my two retorn shoulders. Much better for my posture.
