The U-Step Neuro Press Down Model has the same leading-edge features as the standard U-Step Neuro, which accounts for the superior stability, maneuverability, and control while having press down brakes in place of the standard hand brakes.
To go, press down on the left or right release lever or flip the backrest over and press down. Ideal for those without the hand strength to squeeze a standard hand brake.
Press Down Brake Handles – Ideal for people who cannot squeeze a hand brake. It releases the brakes by lightly pressing down the soft rubberized brake handle, you can go. Release the brake handle to stop.
Middle Bar Braking – An alternative way of operating the braking system is to use the Flip brake Bar. Flip it backward and press down to release the brakes for walking. To engage the brakes, flip the bar forward.
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. That is why we engineered a control for setting the rolling resistance. Loosen the set screw and rotate the adjustment lever to the desired amount of resistance, then re-tighten the set
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 and the need to lift the walker over small obstacles.
Easily Transported – Folding the U-Step Neuro is as easy as one, two, three! Lift the release lever by the seat, pull up on the seat support to fold, and put it in the car; no bending down to pick it up.
Laser & Sound Cueing Module – This optional feature is primarily used by those with Parkinson’s freezing but can be used by anyone with an irregular gait pattern. This Cueing Module can help get you started, normalize your walking and increase your stride. Press the red button on the module to project a bright red laser line on the floor to guide your step. You can also turn on the sound feature to set a beat pattern for walking speed.
