The Kaye Anterior Support Walkers are custom perscription walkers designed for use by individuals with neuromuscular disabilities associated with severe spasticity, athetosis, or ataxia. These walkers are intended for individuals who can support their weight on their legs and take steps, but lack sufficient balance or upper body and shoulder control to maintain alignment and often needing to be aligned slightly forward of the base of support to facilitate stepping. The user stands inside the walker's base of support which supplies a wide stable base and a chest cushion with adjustable angle enables the user to lean into solid support while maintaining alignment of the trunk and hips over the feet. This allows the user to lean forward without developing an atypical posture associated with flexion of the hips. Attached to the chest cushion are adjustable, lateral supports which assist alignment in the frontal plane. These walkers are equipped with front swivel wheels that can be locked in the forward position, and the rear wheels are equipped with external ratchets to prevent the walker from rolling backward.
