Reversed Braking System –
The innovative braking system is easy to use and puts you in complete control. The U-Step Neuro will not roll until you lightly squeeze either hand brake. Once you release the hand brake, the unit will stop immediately. This feature is particularly helpful when standing up from a chair because the unit will not roll away from you. If you loose your grip the walker will stop and not roll away unlike regular walkers.
Rolling Resistance Control –
Unlike other rolling walkers, you can adjust the rolling speed of the new U-Step Neuro. Many people find that wheeled walkers roll too fast for them. Loosen the set screw and rotate the adjustment lever to the desired amount of resistance, then re-tighten the set screw.
Spring Loaded Front Wheel –
The patented spring-loaded front caster system glides easily over uneven surfaces, such as indoor molding strips and cracks in the sidewalk. This avoids sudden jolts as well as the need to lift the walker over small obstacles.
