K9 - Walking Aid
The K-9 Orthopaedic Walking Aid is a revolutionary mobility aid for use in place of crutches for lower leg injuries.The K9 leg trolley is an orthopaedic 4-wheeled mobility aid specifically designed to improve mobility following a lower leg injury such as a ruptured Achilles tendon, amputation, broken ankle, broken foot, bunions, diabetic ulcer, fractured heel, sprained ankle and gout.
Due to its double thrust bearing castor wheel base, it increases mobility replacing crutches and helps with circulation and physiotherapy.
Conventional walking aids like crutches are difficult to use. Problems that rapidly become apparent include fatigue and soreness of the hands, axilla and chest wall. The hands cannot be used for other purposes and occasionally a carpal tunnel syndrome develops.
The Orthopaedic Trolley can, in many situations, liberate the patient from crutches. It is a lightweight wheeled walking aid which, with the knee fixed, supports the shin. It is easily steered with knee pressure, leaving the hands free and it allows far more mobility than crutch-walking.
