The story behind the LiftWalker and LiftRollator
Craig Weaver invented the LiftWalker in the US from a result of discovering that up to 70% of those using a standard walker needed assistance on getting from sitting to standing to use their walker. This put a partner or carer at the risk of injury assisting lifting and the user at risk of injury through to a fall.
"The reason I invented the LiftWalker is because two of my friends hurt themselves lifting their spouses up in order to use their walker. After research, I found out lifting injuries among the elderly helping the elderly was epidemic. People just don’t realize that awkwardly reaching over and helping someone stand up is very dangerous…and that 70% of those who use a walker immediately or eventually need lifting assistance. Please do not take this risk. Even if you do not need lifting help at this time…get a LiftWalker the first time you need a walker…because at anytime while you are using your walker…you may need lifting help."
