My mother’s posture has gotten terrible from leaning over her walker. When I ask her to stand straight and look ahead instead of down, she will; however, because of dementia, she immediately forgets and leans over again. I’m considering UpWalker. Has anyone used it?

Elenker has an upright walker with a seat for much less than that, there may also be other brands. All the more reason to work with a knowledgeable supplier.

Thanks for that insight! I have a 100+ yr old auntie who stoops over her walker and its painful to watch her function.

I just looked it up...$645???? That's for the "small" one. $695 for the large. Holy cow!!! Is it covered by Medicare?

I haven’t. But I was dismayed by my husband’s posture with the walker they gave him. I got a Drive Nitro walker, which is more like a taller rollator with a seat if he needs to sit down. It has nice big wheels for more stability, and lightweight enough for me to lift. Let’s see if he uses it.

One of the gents at mom's nursing home had one, it seemed to work very well for him. I suggest you work with an OT/PT though so that you have it fitted properly - they may even know where you can borrow one for a trial period.
