Thanks for your comments for those of us who struggle. I can't count the
times someone has watched me struggle with a door in an attempt to get me
and my walker through. After I have finally succeeded, they seem to wake
and look embarrassed and say they're are sorry. Without the walker and its
attached basket I can't do any shopping so it is really difficult if my
basket is full. Curbs aren't so bad as all sidewalk corners in my city are
required to have wheelchair ramps. Buses also have wheelchair ramps.
One thing I've always wondered about walkers, why are they made so that the
user has to bend forward all the time? This is not good for posture.
up straight. They always seem to be fairly elderly people. They have to be
properly sized and adjusted. Maybe the users never had them properly
adjusted. Or maybe they were ornery like my mother. I find it most
uncomfortable to stand back and bend forward. Of course my back is the
problem not balance. I agree that is not good for posture.
