The U-Step 2 Neuro Standard advanced walker is specifically designed for neurological conditions. This walker provides excellent stability, maneuverability, and control. Squeeze one or both of the hand brakes to go and release hand brakes to stop. The U-Step 2 will not roll until you lightly squeeze either hand brake. Once you release the hand brake, the unit will stop immediately. This feature is particularly helpful when standing up from a chair because the unit will not roll away from you. The innovative braking system is easy to use and puts you in complete control. The optional Laser & Sound Cueing Module is ideal for those with Parkinson’s freezing.

Unlike other rolling walkers, you can adjust the rolling speed of the new U-Step 2. Many people find that wheeled walkers roll too fast for them. There is a control for setting the rolling resistance. Loosen the set screw and rotate the adjustment lever to the desired amount of resistance, then re-tighten the set screw.
By placing the main turning wheels towards the middle of the base, the U-Step 2 turns around in 29 inches. This will allow you to turn in tight indoor areas, such as washrooms, kitchens, and hallways. At 23 inches wide, you can easily walk through narrow doorways.
The U-Step has a solid welded base, that does not wiggle, so you will feel very secure when walking.
The majority of the weight of the U-Step is in the base, which provides you with a low center of gravity for greater stability.In addition, the “U” shaped base surrounding you and braces you in every direction from falling.
You feel as stable as you would feel holding onto another person’s arm.
