Medline Glide Brakes - Accessories for Rolling Walkers

Product Description

Medline Glide Brakes are accessories for rolling walkers (walkers with front wheels). The glide brakes replace the rear leg extensions, and are easy to install with just the push of a button. They are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, and fit most walkers with 1" diameter tubing.

Glide Brakes are designed to increase the degree of safety associated with the use of rolling walkers by providing the user with a means to halt the momentum of the rolling walker in the event of loss-of-control by the user. In addition, the smooth plastic finish won't scuff up floors.

The Glide Brakes enhance the safety and usability of the walker by eliminating the friction caused as result of the rubber tips dragging along the floor surface while the wheels continue to roll. This friction can be extremely dangerous in that rolling walkers are intended to be pushed by the user at a steady pace and with a consistent degree of force. The rubber tips create friction, which can cause the user to have to push too hard to maneuver the walker, which can result in the user being injured as the result of a fall resulting from the user losing control of the device.

Glide Brakes solve this problem, with a smooth plastic finish that "glides" across floor surfaces of all types, eliminating the friction that can result in injury.

In addition to allowing the user to "glide" across floor surfaces as opposed to having to occasionally manually life the rear end of the walker off the ground when the rubber tips become stuck, the brake component enables the user to halt the momentum of the rolling walker by simply applying mild pressure in a downward direction. This triggers the brake mechanism, shifting the smooth plastic glide component upward, replacing its position with the rubber tip, helping the user to stop the momentum of the walker with minimal effort.

Like many products at Egan Medical Equipment, these high-quality rolling walker accessories come with a limited lifetime warranty.
