Buying the best walker for yourself, with the most appropriate accessories, is often not a simple choice. Sometimes the selection of one style of walker over the other, or adding one specific accessory can change your function, safety, and confidence in using the walker. Many people are able to purchase their own walker by themselves or with the help of family and friends. But others may need a therapist to help balance the pros and cons of the different styles of walkers and accessories.
