Walking Aids


Kaye Walkers also called Kaye Posture Control Walkers or Kaye Posterior Walkers were first introduced by Physiotherapist Janet “Kaye” Howle in the mid-eighties. They were designed to make walking less energy consuming, improve alignment and maximize potential for ambulation. Kaye walker base increases as the height raises, assuring both anterior-posterior and lateral stability. It is an easy transition from the Kaye walker to crutches or independent walking since the child has established appropriate alignment, weight bearing, postural reactions and confidence.

Kaye Walkers fold for easy transport and storage. It is available in 6 sizes (size ½ to size 5) to cater for small children to adults. A wide range of accessories are available to enhance the function of the Kaye Walker. The walking frame is made of lightweight, thick-walled aluminium tubing and has been proved to be a long-lasting product over many years.
