Walkers - Our pediatric walkers come in two styles:
Posterior Walkers - the frame that goes around the sides and rear of the user.
Anterior Walkers- the frame is around the sides and front of the user.
The user always stands in the center. Some studies have shown that walking velocity and cadence are not significantly different between the two options; flexion angles of the trunk, hip and knee are lower on the posterior walker. Also, it's been shown that the oxygen consumption rate is also significantly lower with the posterior walker.
