• Assisting Recovery from Foot Ulcers. The Value of StrideOn Knee Walkers

  • Foot ulcers can have a significant impact on your quality of life. These painful sores, usually located on the bottom of your foot, can limit mobility and lead to complications if not properly cared for. They're a common concern, particularly for people with diabetes or other conditions affecting blood circulation to the feet. In this blog, we'll look at how StrideOn Knee Walkers can help you navigate your day-to-day activities while managing foot ulcers.

    Why Mobility Matters
    When you're dealing with a foot ulcer, maintaining mobility is crucial. It promotes blood flow, encourages healing, and helps you keep up with your daily activities. However, too much pressure or friction on the affected foot can hinder the healing process and even make ulcers worse.

    This is where the StrideOn Knee Walker comes into play.

    The StrideOn Knee Walker Advantage
    Designed as a robust, reliable alternative to crutches, StrideOn Knee Walkers offer a comfortable and efficient solution to mobility challenges. With a padded knee support for your affected leg, the walker allows you to glide around effortlessly, whilst keeping weight off your sore foot.

    Whether you're cooking, gardening, shopping, or simply getting from one room to another, the StrideOn Knee Walker makes it possible, and without straining your upper body or risking a fall.

    Long-Term Use
    For individuals dealing with recurring or long-lasting foot ulcers, the StrideOn Knee Walker can be a life-enhancing mobility aid. It helps to manage the condition by providing the necessary off-loading of pressure on the foot, while allowing you to remain mobile and active.

    Short-Term Use
    Even if your foot ulcer is expected to heal in a matter of weeks, the StrideOn Knee Walker can be of immense help. You can rent one of our knee walkers for a short two-week minimum or as long a period as you need - extending the hire easily with a phone call or email week by week and when finished just call for Strideon to arrange courier collection.
    Delivery is free for hires of 4 weeks or more and includes a free return when you are ready.

    Living with foot ulcers can be tough, but with the right tools and support, you can manage your condition and maintain your independence. StrideOn Knee Walkers, whether hired or purchased, could be the key to keeping you mobile and active while your foot ulcers heal. As always, we recommend discussing your specific needs and circumstances with your healthcare provider before making any changes to your mobility aids or routines.
