SUSPENSION CONVERSION KITS

  • The Conversion Kit attaches to a Kaye Walker and allows it to function as a “partial weight bearing” or suspension walker
  • The walkers can fold with the suspension kits attached
  • The narrower width of these units allows greater manoeuvrability indoors, but prevents the units from fitting over treadmills. For units that fit over treadmills, use the Treadmill Width Adapter
  • These conversion kits are suitable for users who do not have to be lifted into the unit and if weight-bearing does not have to be adjusted when walking. For heavier users who must be lifted into the unit, or if weight-bearing needs to be adjusted when walking, it would be better to use the Suspension Walkers
  • To use with Kaye Suspension Harnesses
